“I am a self taught mixed media painter. I’ve been supporting myself from my art for the last 12 years. In that time I’ve created over 4000 paintings. My prices have risen 1000%. I have sold almost 90% of everything I have created. I have been the sole manager of my career with no business background. I have shown in over 100 galleries. I have taught my techniques and ideas about painting extensively in the US, Canada, Australia, and Mexico. I do not do commercial work. I only take on work where I am free to create as I wish and be myself. I have never preplanned or conceptualized a painting in my entire career. I could tell you a lot of stories.” — Jesse Reno
Magic is anxious – Waiting isn’t easy – The time between visions is slow – What will happen next – What will you tell me – Dancing in the fire – There is a man inside the wood – Smoke ring – Candy cane – Whale bones – A horse with a hammer – A volcano inside – Canoes – Eyes like mirrors – Geometry is not sacred – Write a new spell – Wish… This is never never land – You will know who you are when you are free – Then you must choose – You are here now… This is hard to remember…
This is why we continue to chase – Search for new vision – There is no glory in stopping – One wish greater then the last – Hunt – This is the reward – Ask gods not men – Even kings can not grant the wishes of gods – You were born of stars wolves and fawns – Lions eyes – The future is alive…
Burn in the end – Dissolve the spells with ash – No king will take the mans work – The soil will be remembered by those who fed it.
