a day in the life of an artist
"I'm gonna slit yo throat..."
I heard this from a guy talking on his cell. Who said my
neighbourhood is getting gentrified.
I fluctuate between thinking this site is great and thinking how
ridiculous it is. But I've come to the conclusion that being here

been an exciting challenge and circuitous route up to this point
but I wouldn't give it up for anything.
With the exit from the rat race, it's meant I had to pare down my
lifestyle. I am self sufficient and I live within my means. I know
I can eventually support myself from my art. With that said, I am a
picture framer during the day and paint in the night.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My Art. Aikido (I hope...depends on who you speak to). Cooking.
