art stuff

okay, it's kinda weird calling this "art". I mean I just started painting a couple years ago at one of those paint and drink things. Before that, it was probably elementary school when I tried to paint. Always thought that you had to do things realistically to be an "artist".
As you can see, I've also been playing with some assemblage art which I really enjoy. Many of the assemblage pieces have Chris Cornell lyrics which really inspire me. I've decided not to censor myself and post most everything I create.
