Death Paintings

I suppose phrases come and go. Occasionally I write them down or include them in my art. "Death Paintings" came to me and signifies pretty much everything for me. The beauty of life and the beauty and necessity of death. It is all encompassing, everything I think about while doing any act, most specifically creative acts. Im trying my best to really be alive, not to let the simple or profound pass me by. Record. Digest. This is the life of a future dead man. What will I leave?
