My musings. Possibly, background information about my life and some over sharing.

They say, 'those who teach
they can't do.'
Shitty fucking saying!
I will admit I started these instructions
and I wasn't practising what I preach
I was drawing, sometimes
and leaning on the fact that I knew I had it
I spent time thinking-- 'drinking' about it
Drinking because I am so deep I need to think about my art
whilst spinning motionless
spin myself into a land where I might be able to feel like a stranger to myself
As an artist you can never see your own work as a stranger
and to me that fucking sucks ass!
but as a narcissist craving estrangement from myself
it is my attempt at being a stranger to my art
because I believe I can-- perfectly
be a stranger if I am fucked out of my mind
on cheap beer
So those who teach
so they can see their art as a stranger
AND I will be goddamned
if you aren't drawing like you should
AND maybe now it is time for you to buy a white canvas
AND paint one of the drawings you did recently
AND do it only in two colors
so you can finally understand that blankness
paint that stupid ass drawing out of your sketch pad
and think about it hanging in a museum
Don't be stupid about it
you are not allowed to be Duchamp or Koons
you don't have that kind of money or clout
and if you do you probably haven't read this far
You HAVE to think about 100 years from now
Will that stupid ass drawing you just put on that canvas stand up?
500 years from now?
will it stand against Duchamp? Koons?
If you are a peasant, like me, like a true artist--
You draw your brains out
Until it fucking hurts and you have to settle yourself down
I don't give a fuck what you draw
You BETTER be fucking drawing!
You BETTER grab yourself a fucking canvas
AND two colors of paint and paint that dumb ass drawing you love
you should wake up to that painting
it staring at you
looking like that piece of shit that was 'supposed' to be wonderful
that ....really isn't
and you wake up and spend some time making it right...
