Part of the purpose of my vulnerability series is about the subject and part is about myself.

I’m trying to be vulnerable. By trying new things, pushing boundaries, getting comfortable with failure or ridicule.

This painting was the first step out of that comfort zone. A step into less detail and more abstraction. I would love to say that this painting has answered a lot of questions but it has only created more.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
