The Travelogue Begins

Travel Gear

My trip to the Philippines has begun! I have to thank everyone who bought artwork to help get this trip kicked off. Be sure to keep checking in as I document the experiences I have and the artwork I make as a traveling artist in the Philippines. Traveling as an artist is a science all its own.

Fishing the Streets: Busking in a Bar Town

The Buskers, oil painting by Matt Duckett

We sat engrossed in spectacle under the swirling, drunken crowd that circled us like dumb buzzards. Some of them danced to our music, some to the pulse of some bassy anthem still rattling in their skeleton from two bars down, and others were just there looking for someone to shout at and rub up against.
