Lately I've been obsessed with painting black and white portraits of sumo wrestlers. With my latest trio of images, I think I've reached the completion with the actually portrait portion of the images but they all need colour. Not just any colour but some colour that contradicts the tightness of the painting style. I'm working my way up towards just loading a brushful of paint, like a bright red and arbitrarily applying a swath of colour. Like I said I'm not there yet. I have to work myself up to that point. Stay tuned.

back story: I ate a pizza and a family size bag of tostitos last night. I felt like a slug this morning.
Today I decided to do a cleanse and as a test of my commitment to it I walked through Kensington MArket and had a coffee at Moonbean cafe. While on my way there, I walked by a Jerk chicken place, my favourite beef patty spot and other places that were emitting amazing smells. I survived the walk without caving. The cleanse continues.
