The Alchemy Of Simplicity

Aperture #5 by Epiphanio Alexander

My friend/band mate texted me wanting to know if we could meet that afternoon and I’d never read him so eager to meet. I told him it had to wait till after midnight since that was my cooking day (I cook once a week for the whole week). I suggested he could go see a band and have a beer until I get to the studio.

I was intrigued and wanted to find out what was going on so I pushed to get my prepping done and got to the studio at around 12:30am. A bit afterwards he showed up with a slight tipsy jolly and (I’m paraphrasing here) began praising the man:

The Power Of Inertia

Aperture #8 by Epiphanio Alexander. 36″x 48″ Oil impasto on Board with UV Gloss Varnish.

As I’m walking away from the building, my friend from the neighbor building says from his 2nd floor window:

“Are you dead?”

It was like a “Twilight Zone” moment, I was already off by the inertia of my own procrastination and thinking that all my work and equipment could just blow up any moment… Continue reading The Power Of Inertia
