Today was a major setback back Which came this morning in the form of an email from the warden email informing me of a major edit that need to made just on day before deadline. The 5 point star that was in the centerpiece of the composition had to be removed because it can be seen as a gang sign.
So today was spent desperately trying to buff, repaint and still gain ground
Deadline for both murals is this Wednesday the 13th!
Actual workdays left to deadline: 2!!
It’s a straight sprint to the finish from here on out!! 😅😅
Mural designs for Rikers Islands, Inpsierd by Mos Def's song “There is a way” and kendrick Lamar’s D.N.A based off of collages made by the juvenile inmates of Rikers prison.
I remember as a kid looking at this painting of our first dog Lister , and being mind blown that my mom could paint something that looked like real life . She painted this back in 82 .. before I existed :p. I do remember telling her how amazing it was that SHE made that . She would say something like, " that ? I don't know of I like it.. " . She never pursued art after a few years of graphic design after high school . She watercolors as a hobby now , but still has the ability to look at something and draw/ paint it, the way it looks. I'm still mind blown . We are completely different artists. If I wasn't so damn stubborn I would probably ask her for some tips and help when I need it in my art . Unlike her , my ability to look at something and draw it , does not come easy. One thing that held me back in art was the "it's no good " mentality . That is why I refuse to talk negatively about my art . If people complement it , I say "thank you " or "I like it too !" . Doesn't mean I don't mess up sometimes or focus on the things I don't like , and what needs fixing , but I do my best to hold on to the compliments rather then the negativity. Also it doesn't mean I don't have paintings I mess up and start over or trash it...And it sure doesn't mean I think the piece is "perfect ". It is probably the reason I paint as much as I do . I still find it interesting when people expect a negative response , or they affirm my painting in a way like "don't worry , it'll get there " , when I wasn't worried . My point to all this is, I have never found it has benefited or improve my art to feed the negative feelings, in fact when I practiced art and allowed those thoughts to be my motivation , it finally stopped me from painting for years. It's not bad to like what you have done, even if your are the only person who does, and even if there are some parts that aren't your favorite 😊.. I always say I'd rather be painting horribly and be happy then painting 'perfect' and be miserable . I've tried both .
Absolutely on purpose art installation amongst my jewels called FUCK OFF ROY MOORE or HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE ALABAMA BECAUSE WE GET A LOT WRONG BUT SOMETIMES WE GET THINGS RIGHT AS SHIT. #alabama#dougjones#roymoore#artlife#fashiongirls
