UNDEROAK

OIL PAINT X CANOLA OIL X CANVAS

"Cross your heart and hope to die, the ones you trust might sometimes lie.  The ones that lie may be confused, take your bite, you may be excused."

I read somewhere that if you use cooking oil with your oil paint that the canvas will never dry and if it does it will probably rot the canvas.  I thought that sounded cool so I'm hoping this painting rots in the coolest way possible.  I guess we will find out so I'll have to keep this one updated.  I was feelin a certain way when I painted this so I figured a little rotting soul vibe might really bring it home! Love to all.

"POSITIVITY IN THE FACE OF FALLING APART"

Life seems to be an uncontrollable rollercoaster ride.  Once you fight through the bullshit, it seems to cover you with it all over again.  It's a vicious cycle that seems to be never ending.  It makes me wonder, is it me?  Am I the one doing all this?  Yeah we are all most likely responsible for our mini demises, but we are also responsible for picking ourselves up.  Positivity in the face of falling apart is something I have learned and gotten pretty damn good at.  It's those moments where we find strength when we're weak or find a new path when we are lost that really define us as people.  I truly believe it is what we will measure ourselves by when we are closing our eyes for the last time.  I have almost given up so many times in my life, but those "almosts" don't matter, we do.

Positive to the end.  Whenever it wants to come.

THE FIVE FOOT ASSASSIN

ACRYLIC X SHARPIE X CANVAS

"ARTISTS BRING INSPIRATION"

Sometimes we are so moved by an artist's talent that we pay homage to them through our own creativity, in this case my son was so inspired by an artist that it made me pay homage to said artist because they make my kid feel awesome.  The amount of loved ones I have that were touched by the talent of Phife Dawg is pretty incredible.  So raise a glass to The Five Foot Assassin and the rest of The Tribe.
