It doesn’t exactly look like the real painting because i am no Matisse

I wake up early automatically. I paint. I walk in my ‘hood when i can. I eat when I’m hungry. I sleep when I’m tired. I write. I read. I think a lot. I have time. It can get lonely but most of the time I’m just happy. I do things that feels natural to me. No pressure. All willingly.

I like how the black created the shadows and added dimension to the tree

I’ve been having a lot of naps and deep sleeps lately. I’ve been dreaming a lot too. I’ve had dreams set in Greece, New York and even outer space. Dreamt of cooking rice and pasta in a space ship and food like moules frites that i miss. Quotations and text also appears in my reverie, with exact font and layout. {C’est possible! / Simply Intentional / Shit Happens} I call these my dream mantras.

I’m here but my subconscious is elsewhere.

One of my favorites! my version of Van Dongen

I’ve been watching a lot of films as well. Sometimes I instinctively study the layers of colors in the scene. “Ahh yellow first then green and black.” I would also try to translate the subtitles to my basic french. Well this usually happens when the scene is slow. It gives me time to think.

I am here but my mind is everywhere.

A few years ago, I made a shoutout to the universe. It heard me, so it must be done.

I am here now but i can’t wait to be there.
