ella muerta

my next one. I was at a bookstore today, pouring though art magazines and architecture magazines. I found this photo series of people made up like (i think in haiti) zombies. And this one photo really hit me. So I'm painting her, and changing stuff so the only thing I"m really copying is the face and idea. We'll see. shell probs become a voodoo priestess.

Came across a great quote in a book I bought today (the architecture of happiness)
"It is in dialogue with pain that many beautiful things acquire their value"
-alain de botton

and that quote explains a lot of why i do art. and why a lot of artists are insane.

also, staring at stars is a great thing to do.

EDIT: i had a breakthru with the blue guy i painted. and i've updated this post 3 times now. because I. Can't. Stop. Painting. I"m so excited i could pee!!!!!

EDIT EDIT: now with more blood.
