Art Blog: The Boy Called Kevin

I  am Kevin low res

“You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.” – Richard Siken

This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on.  Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul. I used charcoal to create this abstract portrait on paper.

The original artwork & high resolution digital downloads of the artwork are available on Etsy.

Art Blog: I AM … Hope

I AM … Hope

I read something amazing the other day on Instagram.

H.O.P.E. Hold On Pain Ends.

Beautifully said. At some point in our lives, we have all felt like a victim. But that phase, like any other phase, ends. We hit rock bottom to emerge stronger than before.

Hope is the phoenix emerging from the ashes. The butterfly emerging from a caterpillar.  The sun rising after the darkest of nights.

It’s at the time when we feel our lowest we need to hold onto Hope. Because Pain does End. It always does.
