Today I went “primal” in that I went to what I learned in my preliminary college education as that I went to that part of my brain that would called my “id”.
I wanted to be on this day or i guess days a psuedo-soldier no matter how lame that may be I wanted to be tough, I wanted to suffer, I wanted to be a person who came from a life that was filled with joy, it was filled with opportunities, with sunshine that didn’t burn your eyes but made you happy to see it as you opened your eyes and saw its early morning glow through the shades and it lit up the room and you just yawned and sighed and then you hear the children downstairs or upstairs rustling about and giggling and you know that you have to make them breakfast…
Well, after staying up for 24 hours I have discovered my inner self more than I ever thought I ever thought I could because I know much about primitive art, primeval art, primal art, and so on and so forth into the fifties etc.
so my true inspiration for this drawing, this painting, this fine work of art, this unconventional contemporary modern art piece to put it in the art speak that we all must learn.
this is how I feel today about our war, this is a portrait of my self today.
I AM SICK OF THIS WAR!
Stop it. I want my brother to come home—ALIVE. I want you to just stop it now.
