This is the second time using a reference of a fashion model from a fashion magazine that a colleague brought into the studio a few weeks ago. After I painted her this time, I abstracted her and then added some wise words by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I especially like that I made her eyes different colors.

I referenced an image by @giacomo.spaconi for this work.

This is the demo painting I made today while teaching a private painting session. /// I've heard sentences come out of defenders of 45 that sound something like this: "He can't be racist or Anti-Semitic ... after all, his son-in-law is Jewish and his daughter has converted to Judaism." And 45 himself might even point to other ironies in his life to say "See? Look at the women and the people of color in my life."

The thing is, just because the likes of 45 has a Jewish son-in-law or a Black cabinet member or a female staff member doesn't mean that he regards them as equal. White supremacy is a practice of allowing "the others" to exist but in a manner where his status reins supremely over them. So yeah, Jared can be in his family. But Jared had better know his fucking place in the family because it is 45's base that recently chanted "We will not be replace by Jews" and it is his base that also chanted "Fuck you faggots." And just because 45 wants to fuck women he grabs by the pussy doesn't mean he wants them to be regarded on the same level as men.

Black Lives Matter isn't a movement that seeks to be supreme over others. It's a movement that is saying "There is deficiency in training that is causing certain poorly trained police who are shooting and killing unarmed Black humans. And this needs to stop because Black lives don't not matter. They matter."

I referenced an image of @kaepernick7 from the internet for this work. It's puzzling to hear people say with immense fervor "love it or leave it" in reference to his peaceful and courageous form of protest. Did he spit, shoot, beat, hang, torture, set on fire any person or any object? No. He took a knee (risking fortune and criticism) to shine light on police brutality against the African American community.  Love it or leave it?! How about he loves it, is troubled by aspects of it, and is willing to work toward improving it? That's true love.

I referenced a photo as captured by @my_secret_dream2 for this work and with this song by @latenightalumni obsessively on repeat and beautifully in the air:

SUN SPACE (#latenightalumni)
I take the waves in waves
Everyday
I call my "one more day"

I cut and paste
Hang up these days
And hide the walls with no white space
I don't need space, I don't

So I remain
The days; a sound that repeats
And I keep my face
Veiled in the minor key

The other day, I did an ink-on-paper study of a photo that I took of my friend Miguel. Today, I referenced that study to make this painting. We had been in a restaurant discussing the importance of  artists' pursuit of weird and also the value of that weird trailing back to the origins of our authentic selves. Anyway ... during the photo shoot, the natural light was so good and I thought having him hold a spoon to his face would allow some of that light to be captured in a cool way. And so that's what happened.

Yesterday, I did an ink on paper study referencing a photo of @ohbowen as captured by @martabevacqua. That study was done using a different approach to drawing than my usual. Today I referenced that sketch to make this painting, also using a different approach to drawing than my usual. In the middle of my process, it started pouring rain for a few brief minutes. It was just the most beautiful and brief moment.
