" I don’t paint because I want to-I paint because I have to."

I am what is probably better known as the “outsider” artist. I’ve no formal education in the arts. I’ve an overwhelming urge to draw, paint, sketch, somtimes sculpt and even write.
my painted works fall into two main categories, the abstract.
These pieces usually look very crude and are seem like forms that never truly realize their fruition. one point of interest is the hidden images that seem to pop up in those works.
Second would be the paintings of the Female Form. My only defense is I am in love with women. that is to say everything a woman represents, not just the provocative, the highest pinnacle of physical beauty in this world, but also for women are creatures of such complexity. I both revere and am frightened by them.
My writings are best described and raw and nonsensical-silly. sometimes just have to get the words out of my head before they drive me batty.

Don’t feel like writing atm so I’m going to return to acrylics and oil pastels. the painting I’m working on is gonna be an attempt to show something beautiful.(defenitely involving the female form, there’s no better example of beauty to me) / So I finished my week long attempt at beauty ( A Beautiful Dream) / I am my worst critic so I’ve no idea if it’s really …
