• Painting

    As much as I love photography I am also enamored with painting. I started painting mostly out of a desire to create something from nothing and use a different medium to actualize what I see in my head. When people ask me which one I like better it brings to mind an argument I got into not too long ago with someone on whether photography was as valid of an art form as painting, because he said since you're documenting something thats already there and not creating it, it is not "real" art.
    After I told him to blow me and spend some time in a darkroom, I said that the way you pick a composition and choose to document it is where the creativity is, art is expression period. Here is some of my art.
