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: Faith

Let Go. Let God. Isn’t that what faith is all about? Knowing that no matter what happens, He is there for you, He has a master plan for you. In the end, you know you will land on your two feet, but you gotta have ‘faith, faith, faith’ 🙂

I read somewhere that the phrase “do not be afraid” is written in the Bible 365 times. That it is a daily reminder from God to live everyday being fearless. Isn’t that all about letting your faith be bigger than your fears? How does it get even more amazing than that? 🙂

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/
