earlier this year, on august 7th, the day before my 37th birthday, I wrecked on my bicycle my collar bone was broken and I needed to have surgery. I am all healed now, but for several months it was tons of oxycodone, and no real lifting. I did a lot of black and white pastels during this time. I seldom do self portraits, but I thought I should do one to document this time.
This is a series I did to back in 2013. I am currently displaying a new painting from the series nightly on my instagram feed @skinnybjansen. But how did these paintings come to be? What is the story behind their inception? To find that out, watch the video below! Cheers!
