falling into that moment when the world goes to sleep and the cat and I visit the land of smirks. This cold air is a kiss from every soul that ever existed beyond the grasp of anything else that ever walked before 3:30 AM. It's fun and yet it has this quality that reminds me of the first time I opened my eyes...

Last two weeks I spent in search of perfect painter madness. This journey I love so much in The Fall. I try all my best to not lose my inspiration with the cold brown leaves. Mostly I feel, that I am doing well. I think taking weird filter camera pictures is a big help. The dinners outside of my studio with our friends help too...

This seems very different from everything else I have seen you share here.  What took you to this one?  Is it reflective of some prior work/style, or is it a sort of exploration?

@jaws318 lol i thought only in USSR & post USSR countries old professors (and a lot of people) dislike such art & everythink abuot nudity & genitailes :))

Thanks!  I always enjoy your dialogs.

@glass42 I'm super glad you enjoy them. I got a compliment from a Huffingtonpost writer on my podcast last night. I guess I'm on the right path. 

I never imagined my life would feel so good after going to my hometown for a few days.
I was not born in Charlotte, NC but I grew up there. It was hard at times but the best friends I have known in my life are all over the world so this is the third chapter revisited.
Got'ta see my old buddy Ryan Wilson
