I admire art from a lightly enlightened distance. Partly because I know that it is a totally different artistic world from which I am used to, like writing, and also because it can be so beautiful and inspirational that it intimidates me at times. What someone can put together on a canvas is crazy!

mostly because I’m into rebel art and graffiti/street pieces, but every once in a while I find myself scrolling through the history of different painters from the past and wondering what influenced them to put together something we can still look at today.

This piece has the visual luminosity that can help me create a whole story or poem. The woman’s face is beautiful, the colors are remarkable. Dope, right?
