Hey everyone! (if anyone is still paying attention that is)

So this painting I've had for a while now. I did this over a year ago, but haven't had the time or ambition to post it online until now.

I got an idea over a year ago of a clock. It was a clock split into the 12 zodiac signs and their corresponding months and signs. With the 4 quarters of the clock divided up into the 4 seasons we would normally experience throughout the year.

I tried to incorporate a bunch of symbols and junk into it, since at the time I thought I was learning all kinds of things about mysticism and mythology and theology and everything else. So I decided to draw it in paint markers on a giant canvas; it didn't come out exactly as I had wished, but it gets the job done. So from there, I thought it looked plain on its own, and I didn't have any ideas of how to fill up the rest of the canvas.

So, for the next 2/3 weeks I just chose to let go. And just let my brain wander around a bit.

Every now and then I would take a few minutes, or a few hours and just let my random thoughts spill out onto the canvas. I would start a section with a random quote I had in my head, or just simple lines and just flow until I recognized something, then I'd turn that into something. I tried to make everything flow into everything else, its choppy, but I'm pretty satisfied with how this turned out.

I hid little tidbits and inside jokes throughout this whole thing. and unless I sat down and explained every doodle to you, I'm not sure if most people will spot them. But anyways, this was my first attempt at something like this, I've since done a couple more, and I will post them as soon as I get a minute or two.

so yeah, until then internets!!!!
