Here is a selfie in one of my favorite new shirts! Know what’s not as awkward as my photo? This new merch! 

“I may regret this. Let’s find out!” is my motto when I paint. We’re artists. We HAVE to experiment. Sometimes those experiments end well. Sometimes…uh, not so much. We won’t discover awesome new techniques if we aren’t willing to make a mistake though!
