Painting Live is a good feeling

Painting live last night with Black Alley and M.U.D.D. at Hardrock at The Loft was amazing!!!! I can soooo do this all day for a living. Good music, good vibes, and great people make for an excellent place to create art! Although I love the solitude of my studio it feels great to be able to do what I do in front of an audience from time to time.
This Sunday at The Encounter with Brandon Camphor & OneWay another awesome event full of young people getting their praise on. I will be doing it again. I am so grateful for the talent God has given me. I'm just paying it forward.

High Energy

I named my new painting High Energy and instantly I thought gosh I wish I could take some energy from the painting and bottle it and drink it. I'm not even old and yet I appreciate and miss my youth. Anyway... I get so excited whenever I complete a new piece and it actually looks like the drawing I did. Not all my paintings come from a drawing though.

New pieces and many more to come I'm just feeling a burst of inspiration these days and a lot of my pieces will be focusing more on lines, geometrical shapes & curves with complementing colors. I know this is a new genre for me somewhat but I am still playing around and making it suit my style.

They are available for sale now at just click photo to go.

Happy Happy Mother's Day!

My day has been the typical weekend off and thats cool with me except I wish I had went to dinner mainly so I can have dessert. My mom did make me the coolest mother's day card ever and my daughter went to the store all on her own and bought her mommy 2 24x36 canvases and watercolor paper. I am so delighted. My ex-husband even bought me some body wash and lotion from Victoria's Secret. 

I got a lot done like this beautiful commission painting that is no longer available. Click the link to view it in my store.

The good news is the print is available and it is a Limited Edition so only 25 will be made in the 8x10 size.
Click on the link to view it in my store.

Now off to go make more art peace and blessings

The broken dreamer

I thought today I'd finally give my artist statement about my work...

 I create many of my pieces while learning to deal with the past. I can be a bit of a ruminator. I get it from my mommy. I spend a large part of my conscious thinking reminising of the days now gone. Some are memories of the good old days some not good at all. Many of my pieces have a common thread that runs through them. This was not done by default but by design. All my works pays some type of homage to some person, place, or time in my life either past, present, or future. Love ones who are no longer here, love that is lost, hearts that have broken, worlds and dreams shattered. Yet in the mist of the chaos there is this feeling of whimsical hopefulness. 

  • Often times you see various trees in my work. Trees mean alot to me. They signify growth, & strength. Most have been around for hundreds of years. So they have deep rooted history. They keep me grounded. They tell me where I've been and what I'm made of.

  • Clouds are another thing seen in my work they can be good or bad. On a good day they represent hopefulness, dreams, full of many ambitious possibilities. However when there is a storm...they can mean struggles, opposition, a feeling of hopelessness and despair.

  • Faces or eyes are the human connection with me the artist. When they are shut they are often dreaming & reminiscing. Sometimes with tears of joy or sadness. When the eyes are open its a window with a glimpse into my soul.

  • Suns represnet a new day its a reminder that whatever we go through it too will pass. 

I hope this gives you and other viewers an insight into my mind and feelings I try to convey in my work. Although I often times don't fully disclose the meaning to an individual piece. I like to leave the interpretation up to the viewer. Besides as I continue to live and have life experiences my work will constantly evolve. 
I just wanted to take the time too say a few words about my work and to give thanks to God. I want to also thank my family who supports and believes in me and my wonderful collectors and fans. I truly appreciate you all. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Peace and Blessings.
