my art practice.
since 2007 when I decided to come back to painting, I've been happily working, never doubting what I'm doing is the correct choice.
now, 10 years later. am I still on the right track? I'm beginning to wonder. is it a LARK? . is making art and wanting it to b my full time life a LARK? I'm not sure how I want to take this remark. I can think it positive, as in I'm a lark-like artist and not think too much. however, once said and heard, it's tunneled into my heart, creating doubt in my mind about my art practice. is it all a lark? what a double meaning word!
in my studio, all the shiny brightness of my conviction has desaturated a bit. my paintings doesn't look so good anymore. I feel lost.
do I continue on this path?

2016 in rear view mirror

it's 2017. how time flies by each year. the next thing i know, i'll b reaching my 48th bday in oct!

a lot has happened since my last blog post. i mean, A LOT... last may, i wasn't even feeling the election year thing at all. but then, donald trump jumped out of nowhere and actually became the nominated candidate for the republican party! i know in SF, everyone i knew became nervous that he may have the chance to beat hilary clinton. i even volunteered at her hq to do texting, to try to get ppl out there to go vote. in the end, only 54% of eligible voters voted :( and the sad end of 2016 was that trump is going to b our next president :(  how can this b? i was so depressed, i think most of citizens of SF were depressed. i woke up the next day hoping it would all go away. alas, it's not. i cannot even watch or listen to any kind of news now, because he's out there being a man-baby, twitting away and being the most annoying person out there.
