I make my own spray paint. I have an electric paintbrush and a paint roller. I like to use it on canvas walls because it’s less messy. I find they can dry more quickly than if I use a white spray.
Do you paint on a white canvas?
Yes. And I do it all over the house. Sometimes I will do a wall and then go in and paint it.
So, does it mean you are a perfectionist?
I definitely am. One of the things I enjoy that is really hard on a painter is the repetition of making the same picture multiple times. This is not the case with my art. Some of my pieces are bigger than other. For example… the water bottle. I’ll try and try to do a water bottle. I love to mix different types of paint to see what happens.
How did you get your start in the art world?
I started painting because I read that a lot of artists get famous through their paintings. That was my connection to it. I did some schoolwork in a local gallery but it got to the point where I decided to go and paint all over New Orleans. I ended up doing about four or five days a week. I learned how to do it and I learned the techniques of painting.
As far as making art, I love the process. It really is a lot of work. I mean it’s really hard to stay calm when you are painting and you are in a hurry. But I always come out at the end a happy man.
Tell us about your latest work. What’s the most amazing thing you’ve painted yet?
Well I’ve got a painting coming out this weekend. It’s a water fountain. You want to see it? It’s one of these things. I’ve been doing it for a long time. It’s a huge project and it goes out the door on Friday night.
Can you tell us something about it?
I’m trying to get people to read a poem to me when it goes up on Facebook. It’s written by one of my friends, it’s called “Water Fountain” I’m doing a water fountain. It’s a little fountain that my friend made. He wanted to make something unique and different. He has a lot of family members that have died in the flooding. It’s not easy.
You were doing this project for so long?
Not because of the flood, but
