If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is: Postcards by Eric Dyer

I like to go on long walks around the city. The buildings are beautiful; the flowers float all around us. I love days with the fog and I love the days with the sun.

Painting has the ability to slow time. Every day I take in more but remember less. What did I do last Wednesday night? The week before that? Today, three years ago? So, while trying to make conscious decisions about how to think and what to pay attention to, I paint. I paint buildings I see on my walks around the city. I paint pictures of photos my parents took when I was a kid and portraits of who I may be today. (I’m still unsure.) I paint past art that I made but no longer have. I paint because my paintings can never be perfect. I paint to hold on just a little bit longer.

Eric studied Studio Art at California College of the Arts (MFA) and Painting and Drawing at the University of North Texas (BFA).
