The Poor can eat the Poor
During the 'Occupy Madison' movement I found a canvas on which somebody had written "The Poor can eat the Poor." I painted over it.

Artistic Philosophy:

I have always been interested in every form of creative expression. I think it is hard to define art but it is easy to recognize.

More about user:

I mostly use painting as a form of relaxation. I haven't yet found a style or method that I am comfortable with.

I haven't had any sort of formal training in painting. I took art classes all throughout elementary and high school. In college I took one oil painting class and a course in art philosophy. I am an expert doodler.

Styles:
Realism, Impressionism, Expressionism, Surrealism, Abstraction, Abstract,
Mediums:
Oil, Acrylic,
