It is said that time heals all wounds but perhaps that time comes in a different state of existence or unexpected ways and connections. I woke up this morning, before my alarm clock went off, from a vivid dream about my dad. In an effort to shift my attention, I opened up IG and the first thing I saw was a beautiful story shared by Cat Zingano addressing the same thing. It felt like the universe was telling me today was a day that someone somewhere might need to hear this.

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact segmentations of energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time.

Featured: .38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness). This painting reflects the fraction of a second it takes to change an entire connection of intertwined lives and energies. It depicts a suicide victim being embraced by an angel at the moment of impact. I used to paint exclusively in an effort to heal myself and my own wounds. Nowadays, I paint to hopefully inspire, but more so in an effort to save a life, perhaps one I don’t even know. I would love to help people grow but the first step to growth is survival…and some days merely surviving is growth. Hold on.
