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: I AM … Vivek

I AM Vivek low resI AM … Vivek

I created this artwork inspired by a friend’s facebook profile picture.

Vivek is the adventurer within us, who loves to see the world through the lens of his camera. He wants to experience the uniqueness of this earth through the different types of foods across cultures. He loves to travel and roam this earth, but a part of him is looking for that place that is only HIS.

This pic was taken on a lake that flows between Vietnam & China. As he said to me, “That day, I owned the lake!! I owned the whole place.”

A part of us is looking for a place where we experience that immense peace, that belonging. Where we can sit down, breathe, take in every little detail around us, hear the crickets chirping, see the fishes flowing through crystal clear waters … and at that very moment, we let go of everything that is burdening us.  Nothing else matters except for that suspended moment in reality. And at that moment, we truly understand what it feels like to live and breathe the present, where the past doesn’t matter, and the future doesn’t worry us. At that very moment, we meet ourselves all over again, and we fall in love with ourselves all over again. 🙂

How To Silence The Haters & Start Listening To Your Authentic Self

A really well written article. Recently I have met a lot of extremely talented people, people with amazing business ideas, people who want to change the world we live in. The only thing holding them back is “what will others think if I do this?”

Opinions of others will not define you. You define you. Deep down we all know what will bring us true peace and happiness. Its time to really own you, be you. Sure…it’s scary as hell when you do create a change. People will drop away. But honestly, do you really need these individuals? 🙂 Be grateful for the chance to have little adventures, meet new like minded people, new opportunities to expand your abilities wider. Be truly YOU.
