3 Other Things I love

Some folks base their identities off of what they hate. For instance, I see a lot of people on social media base their identity off of hating a certain politician or a sports team. I genuinely feel sorry for people like that. Their lives are so meaningless that instead of…

On inking, becoming an artist, photography, and horror

You could split people into whatever types or categories you want. Some get offended by categorizing people. I don't. Let's now have some fun with artists. The way I see it, there are two types of artists. There are artists who like hard lines and artists who don't. I fall…

Liquor for May

I've heard that general blogs are going out of fashion. That blogs should be specific, and follow a general theme. You know what? I don't care. For one, I'm not one to follow rules. For another, pardon my French, but as much as I love watercolors, I'm not going to…

Looking forward to 2021

You know the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people? Successful people have long-term goals. Unsuccessful people don't. "But what about Jim? He's going great and is totally random." Congratulations guy. You found the exception to the rule. I'm speaking generally. You're always going to find that one guy who…

Artistic nudes vs erotica

I didn't like Impressionism. At all. Until I saw it in real life. That's the same reason I don't sell my art online. When you see it in real life, it's completely different. You'll have a much greater respect for it. It's not meant to be seen up close. It's…

5 Reasons why Watercolors rule

I've said before that I'm an unlikely watercolor evangelist. Everyone thinks of Aunt Bessie's birds and flowers when they think of watercolors. Nobody thinks of nude women. When folks think about nude women, they almost always think of oils. Maybe acrylics, but almost always oils. To be honest though, I…

Inventory of skill sets

I started journaling earlier this year. I used to do it. Then just stopped for years. I don't know why I stopped, and am really bummed I did. I used to write everything in the journals. Super personal stuff. What I was feeling at the time. I could go back…

Drinker with a painting problem

Awhile back, I wrote about painting under the influence of absinthe. Except now, I do things differently. Now, I light the sugarcube. It makes a lovely blue flame. And it helps break the sugar down better, giving the drink a richer flavor. Highly recommend to fellow drinkers. I'll have to…
