Art Blog: I AM … Charlie

I AM Charlie Anger low res

I AM … Charlie

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.

Charlie is that part of us that has taken a hardship and converted it into a stepping stone. He’s the part of us that has let go of anger, and embraced compassion. Charlie is that intensity within us that makes us go after our dreams. Charlie is that silent strength within us who knows nothing is impossible. Charlie is the deep wisdom that is pulsating through our DNA.

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: The Boy Called Kevin

“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

Art Blog: Being Extraordinary

being extraordinary low resAs humans, we are always trying to fit in in order to belong. It’s supposedly the ‘law of the land’. God forbid if we allow our true authentic self to emerge. Family, society and peers start calling us ‘weird’. They shun us, outcast us, and create circumstances where we are nudged back into their box of what’s acceptable.

The truth is they don’t get ‘weird’. They don’t get how being different is actually fun. They don’t get being extraordinary. And it’s perfectly ok for them not to get it. Seriously. It’s actually ok. After all…

It’s not their journey. It’s YOUR journey.

It’s not their truth. It’s YOUR truth.

It’s not about them. It’s about YOU.

What if you could actually choose to show up as the true magnificence you truly are? What if you could choose to stand on this Earth in your true authentic power that you truly are? Can you imagine the magic you can create? 🙂 Can you imagine how amazingly different your life would start to be? The joy you would feel deep within your soul? Wohoooo 🙂

I used palette knives and oil paints to create this on paper.

I was inspired to create this painting whilst listening to Tamra Oviatt’s Sacred Activation on Being Extraordinary. Link: http://sacredactivations.com/product/being-extraordinary-2/
