"I really liked that show but it made my nervous when I watched it. It is the first time I watched one of those shows and could see myself in it. Freaked me out but I loved the show."

Jay is a painter

Posted on November 7, 2013 at 9:33am 0 Comments

As an artist it is often hard to figure out the best way to be seen.i mean I can always post wheat paste on walls but then I have to stay I the shadows and honestly I'm vain. I want to hear people say "wow, I love your style." I make so much work that it needs an audience more then my website or social media. I'm just not sure how to keep on the minds of strangers.
