WHERE YOUR BRUSH FAILS, USE A PALLETE KNIFE, IF THAT FAILS USE YOUR FINGERS AND IF YOUR FINGERS FAIL…DREAM THE PAINTING INTO REALITY…lol not really…
Painting of a painting done today… Fernando Botero
Acrylic…Mordern architecture. Had a bit of a struggle with this one
Light Walls House
Located in Toyokawa city, the “Light Walls House” is a wooden house imagined by Japanese studio mA-style architects. White, minimalist and decorated with plants, this building has a structure which allows the light to reflect on the ground and on the walls in order to create patterns thanks to a trick of shadows and rays.
"ARCHITECTS ARE SERVANTS, NOT LEADERS. THEY ARE NOT TO ASSERT THEIR LITTLE EGOS, BUT TO EXPRESS THE SOUL OF THEIR COUNTRY AND THE RHYTHM OF THEIR TIME. THEY ARE NOT TO FOLLOW THE DELUSIONS OF THEIR PERSONAL FANCY, BUT TO SEEK THE COMMON DENOMINATOR, WHICH WILL BRING THEIR WORK CLOSE TO THE HEART OF THE MASSES. ARCHITECTS~ AH, MY FRIENDS, THEIRS IS NOT TO REASON WHY. THEIRS IS NOT TO COMMAND, BUT TO BE COMMANDED. " ~ Currently reading this Novel by Ayn Rand…it’s thrown me into moments of deep contemplation and there’s a new type of self consciousness I have…words fail me, I cannot explain how much I adore Ayn Rand,her philosophy and her fiction because I’ve had the longest day…however I feel compelled to share this, not for you to find meaning in those words (even though they carry meaning and invoke thoughts truly) but to feel as I feel right now, something you’ll never understand till you read the book itself…and perhaps her other books…what are you waiting for…go to google——>”

Acrylic paintings…I’m finding the pallete knife quite useful, I love it.
Yellow and Black oil paint and Oil pastels…really glad I did these, squeezed the oil right out of the tubes, I intended them to be warm-ups but I didn’t do anything else.
Fragments of my small roadtrip. Portharcourt~ Lagos.
