Paintings

“Andy Warhol once said, “An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.” He had a point there, you know. Man, as the singhle largest collector of VonMax paintings I clearly have produced things people don’t need to have. To those weho like my work I am flattered. To those who have purchased my work I am perpetually amazed at your complete lack of class and elegance. I’m kidding. I am always honored when someone send a photo of one of my pieces hanging in their home or office. I didn’t get in to this for the money so aside from a few commissioned pieces (which I absolutely hate doing), I paint for me. I paint for my own reasons and enjoyment. I won’t knock artists that are out there busting there asses trying to hustle a few bucks for a canvas. Fuck, man, there is enough pressure just getting through life on a day to day basis sometimes. So goddam many things out there for me to think about other than whether or not someone, somewhere likes or hates something that I have created. Relax, man. Have a beer.”
