He did cool paintings that make you think.

I also think that he and I are ALOT alike.
I agree with what he thinks and sees about his art. He just painted things that looked cool and that he thought were interesting.
He loved what he did, and didn't paint for money.
He just did it because it was fun. "My work isn't about Form. Its about seeing. I'm excited about seeing things, And im interested in the way I think other people see things."
