Well, Biden is here. I have never thought that I will experience immediate relief once Trump was out of office but I did. It seemed that I could breathe a little easier like the weight have been lifted. I am not particularly fond of Biden especially after listening to this podcast: https://theintercept.com/2020/01/30/does-joe-biden-have-a-corruption-problem/. But I’ll take it! In my opinion, all…

Wanted to post something because it is 20/20. My dog nowadays won’t go outside until I give him a full body massage. I don’t know where it came from. Maybe he had a conversation with one of the dogs he played with on a grassy field and here it is. I am being held hostage because it is not like…

Today was not my day. It was a shitty day. The kind of a day where you try to put pants on and fall over. Everything felt and went wrong from the moment I woke up. I overslept. And this is a lot to say since this was Sunday. Usually, I love to sleep, especially now that I I have…

I started this painting piece couple of days ago, and at the time it felt marvelous creating it, putting paint on, making marks, scraping, dabbing. This physical part of painting is very much like a kinesthetic thrill or a runner’s high. We don’t talk much about art regarding physical motions of an artist. We often speak of meaning, the possible…
