Zen, Minimalist, Abstract, yada, yada, yada…

wsjnwwoann

One of my favorite things to do is sit at a sushi bar on a Saturday afternoon and draw these little “abstract zen minimalist” drawings.

No, I don’t think of myself an abstract artist. No, I’m not a zen master; I don’t practice mediatatation or consider myself a Buddhist. I’m certainly no Donald Judd.

But I like to channel that vibe, nonetheless. Spending a lot of time in Marfa and the surrounding desert brings it out in me.

Life is messy and stressful, we need and art that puts inner tranquility at its very center.

Whatevert the fancy-talking art theorists say, people need serenity in their lives. It’s not rocket science..

Incredible times

If you're not happy

Art belongs in your head

I like being alive

All art is longing

Only you can decide

Sunday walk

Holy space

Believe in me

All there is

Live happy die happy

Decide life is short

Don't tell me how to live
