I went through a period where my vision was failing due to a brunescent cataract. Because I was already blind in one eye the doctors would not operate until my vision was lost to the cataract. After the operation I still did not feel like painting. This was odd for me as I have been painting since I was three. I had written a book called, “BADDUH DAY BY FRIGGIN’ DAY.” To buy <- BADDUH    That book answered the question how would Buddah’s wisdom have been different if he had been born a poor white southerner in a trailer park in South Carolina. So I started thinking one day what if I was someone else? If I had been born different would I want to paint? I created a fictional character called Venus Lebowitz. Venus Lebowitz is a 16 year old, Jewish Lesbian. She is a free spirit who loves, the outdoors, science fiction and folk music. All this sounds more premeditated than i was at it all happened in seconds and the first paintings in less than an hour.
