this year has been an interesting journey, as far as my art goes.
the relative sporadicity(?) of the shows & piece to work on has allowed my
thoughts to seep better into my piece rather than just running at full speed
like other years.

so i feel like i hardly notice the changes that others might see, from the process
having been so slow and quiet, to me at least... comforting, in an odd way.

the more i paint faces (which borders obsession), the more i get interested
in layers that live underneath our skin, the hidden emotions, the buried words
and thoughts that wants to hide and expose themselves at the same time...
that you find hard to ponder upon or look at, yet can't stop doing so.
things that betray the best of our intentions...
