Every morning I’d wake up with a new heartbreak, as I emptied out the jar of dead fireflies.
But every night I was still so ecstatic capturing them,
and somehow just leaving them outside didn’t feel like an option.

They’ve always captivated me

Precious, Alien,
Short lived, numerous,
Powerful, vulnerable,
Passing, armored

Unlike your company,
I can keep them in a jar

But like your company,
They don’t last long.
Or at least as long as I’d like.

All the sticks and leaves and water-soaked cotton balls in the world
Won’t make either of you stay forever

But I can try to fake it

"The Art of Jacob Wayne" 
Social Pop Surrealism in acrylic

Opening reception:
Saturday, 13 June from 6-9pm

Also showing during the Georgetown Carnival the same day from noon-10pm!

"My strongest ability is in Traditional Painting, in the style of what I would define as Social Pop Surrealism and a somewhat alla prima style with acrylics. Since beginning in 2004 I've participated in festivals, galleries, and organized events. I've also displayed work in different establishments, designed various media projects and my own art book, murals for local businesses, Sold pieces internationally, and also networked local artists for events in communities that I've lived. In 2008 I graduated from Utah State University with a BA in Asian Studies & a Minor in Chinese. Afterwards I taught at a High School in Hangzhou, China for a year and now I'm working in Seattle, WA." ~ Jacob

When I was a kid and my parents wouldn’t buy me a teddy bear, I cried. Not because I didn’t get what I wanted, but because I had told the teddy he had a home with me and that I would keep him safe, and I had let him down. Even now, when I don’t want to give it credence, I feel a twinge: this object has a soul. A character. A vacuum tube that passed inspection in 1936. A stranger’s perfect handwriting. Lost glasses, smashed headphones, half of a lawn ornament. Keys, oh so many keys to doors I will never find. They are tiny mysteries and tiny kindnesses: finding homes for abandoned objects. I pick them up.
