"Dreams:Living in San Francisco,mostly Haight-Ashbury,when I was much younger"--wierd dreams of living with roommates,Haight St.,and all the buildings,housing,apts., flats,all mxed together,always trying to find a place to live;roommate problems;you name it.Still have bad dreams about it all. Everyone tries to idealize the Good Old Days,the only good thing was,I was physically young,still had my feet.Otherwise,I was poor,mentally ill,and always having a hard time. Still,when You're young you think it will all work out.In middleage,and older,you know it often does not. Life is a cliche,and we all do the same things when young,and then change when we get old;and we never become successful,the way we imagine we would. Everyone is unrealistic,mostly,and then we get old. Ho-hum, biggest cliche in the world. Nobody has control over the world. That is a big,fat illusion.

this is pretty cool! I love the colours and how you used the textures. the white lines add a lot of dynamism too...
I bet you can do awesome paintings too :D

Wow, can I say, that is VERY Haight & Ashbury.

May I critique one thing? :) I think your art uses a lot of textures, which is great, but I'm curious what would happen if you used less...or maybe only used it in certain places to illustrate a point. Like, one type of texture, only for one thing. I guess this is more of a suggestion than a critique - i have no idea what the end result will be =D

That is a good idea about using just one texture,or just one type of paint brush.
