The Purpose of Long Weekends

"Dear sleep, I know we had problems when I was younger. But now I love you."

This utopic scene may have made an appearance way back in the day but it's just so soothing. Couldn't resist. It's flirting with my desire to leave all the work I've conveniently left until today to get through and instead to slip away for a few hours in its endless amounts of pillows and sheets.

Treehouse swag, yo. Straight up. Looks like a clan of gypsies would live here, and I'm assuming they'd get along with me so I could live here too.

The darkness is hugging you in this room. Book lovers must be crying tears of joy right about now. 

Anyways, Happy Easter everyone! 
Short and sweet. Now get back to hunting for those eggs the bunny left behind.

But first, I must show you my foodgawker worthy yogurt parfait.

Nummy in my tummy.

Choose an animal, any animal.

"We are both tempted by the humanization of animals, often revealing our fantasies and projections by bestial men, another way for us to freeze the other in an animal" 
Antoine Spire

This series of paintings, photographs, trying to respond to a form of duality - that assumes an animal part - by the medium of painting in addition, runs, mask, portrait. 
To ultimately create an osmosis between the two mediums, so between the animal and the portrait.

What a whimsical idea. And it's true, how often are you asked what animal you would be? Not every other day? Oh, how odd.

No, I kid. We don't still have the minds of elementary school students. Yes, we do. However, when I am asked, I take it seriously. This animal represents what I will be in my next life. This casual question? It's IMPORTANT. I can control DESTINY. 

I've decided that if I were to be a bird, I'd be the painted bunting. To be able to fly would be too cool to pass on. But then I think about the amount of worms and flies I'd have to digest. So I change my mind to a fox. Foxes are so suave, just love 'em.
