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.

Art Blog: Sunset at the Park

“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.” – Nicholas Sparks

I used oil paints on paper to create this artwork

Art Blog: The Day God Went Dancing With Me

dancing with God low resLast weekend, I was really feeling low and feverish, and all I wanted to do was stay in my bed, huddled under the covers. But it was a close friend’s birthday … someone who has stuck by me through thick and thin. I literally remember at around 12 pm talking to God and saying, “ok dude up there, we have to get up and go. I am going partying, dancing, drinking because this friend means a lot to me, and you gotta help me through this cuz I ain’t feeling sick or feverish or low through his bday celebrations. You do what You do best!”.

And I got up, showered, got dressed and landed up for the party. And boy did we enjoy, laugh, eat amazing food, dance, laugh a lot more 🙂 Took lots and lots of photographs. Somewhere around the evening, he took this pic of me dancing, with the sun setting in the background and reflections on the sea.

I posted it up, and a friend pointed out that an angel was dancing with me! The setting sun’s rays actually formed an angel on the waves of the sea! At that point I KNEW God had gone dancing with me that day. He had done what He did best … He took care of me and ensured I had an absolutely incredible time.

Now how does it get even more AMAZING than this? 🙂

This artwork was done using Charcoal on Paper.
