Today I drew a sketch of a little person trying to find peace in this toxic world that currently surrounds us. The little person was completely overpowered by chemicals and all sorts of imagery coming at him from every direction. I am thinking about turning this doodle into a painting or series. I'm sure it might offend some people or initiate questions/attacks onto me, but I don't really care anymore. I'm an artist. I don't have to filter myself to please the masses. Art is about making an observation, forming an idea from those observations, and turning that into imagery. There is nothing wrong with that, right? Cheers to freedom of speech, as long as we don't mention too much anyway.
I visited the new Dali Museum of Art today, in St.Petersburg, Florida. This has always been one of my favorite places to go to ponder and look for inspiration. I opted not to take the guided tour or audio tour, so that I could just visually absorb what the artist was trying to convey to the viewer. After leaving the state-of-the-art museum, I felt about as big as an ant, which is ironic because it is said that Dali kind of had a phobia of ants.
