The final painting “not the one” / 60”x90” - for my show “Q&A” at NSC in Toronto. November 20, 2014
an out-take from this same photo-shoot (where i was taking pictures to use as source for the painting) was posted from my instagram onto tumblr and has something like 100,000 re-blogs or something insane.
Something that most people don’t really realize - this is a self portrait.

"I feel so intensely the delights of shutting oneself up in a little world of one’s own, with pictures and music and everything beautiful."

"In the world of the dreamer there was solitude: all the exaltations and joys came in the moment of preparation for living. They took place in solitude. But with action came anxiety, and the sense of insuperable effort made to match the dream, and with it came weariness, discouragement, and the flight into solitude again. And then in solitude, in the opium den of remembrance, the possibility of pleasure again."
Anaïs Nin (via girlinlondon)

"After the keen still days of September, the October sun filled the world with mellow warmth… The maple tree in front of the doorstep burned like a gigantic red torch. The oaks along the roadway glowed yellow and bronze. The fields stretched like a carpet of jewels, emerald and topaz and garnet. Everywhere she walked the color shouted and sang around her."
Elizabeth George Speare, The Witch of Blackbird Pond (via girlinlondon)

"Anne reveled in the world of color about her. Oh, she exclaimed one Saturday morning, coming dancing in with her arms full of gorgeous boughs- I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it? Look at these maple branches. Don’t they give you a thrill—several thrills?"
