Hip Replacement!? Yes me at age 42 could possibly need hip replacement. On top of that a paradectomy (removing some glands inside my throat) that’s looming over my head. All these ailments that I’m dealing with stems from my evil nemesis: chronic kidney failure. I met with an orthopedic doctor this morning and after a few X-rays I was told the pain in my hip is from poor blood flow in my hip joint to which the bone is starting to deteriorate.

Good news of the day: My first of a Limited Edition Print came in today which is featured here

Kind of says it all about how I feel about this day. Oh well, keep pushing.

New Digital Art Painting by Carlos Burgess

Where Are We Today

This piece was done in ArtRage on my iPad Pro tablet. I started it two months ago. I downloaded the ArtRage app and just played around with it. I loved how it gives that sense of actually painting on a canvas. How the colors reacted is really close to how it reacts live. I was inspired to use a lot of color from an artist that I’m following on Instagram named Valentyna Odnolko (@odnolkovalentyna) from the Ukraine. She displayed this portrait painting of Andy Warhol, and needless to say I was blown away. So this is my attempt to paint in that style. I didn’t use a reference photo, just went with an image in my head from familiarizing my self with the software.
As things unfold in our society I tend to reference this image with how the man looks like he’s in deep thought. Racial unrest, a deadly pandemic, and high unemployment has me asking where are we at in this society.
