Today is my mom’s Birthday, which should by all means be a day of celebration. Today is also the anniversary of my father’s suicide. Featured in the first image is “.38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness)”, which depicts an angel embracing a suicide victim at the moment of impact. I’m very thankful that I was given an opportunity to pull this painting off the racks this weekend to display it publicly for the first time in an exhibition about recovery and art therapy at the Expressive Arts Institute. The Expressive Arts Institute also provided me a platform two years ago to debut my 5 year project, “Reign Upon Sonrise”, which was, in part, highlighted by the suicide note I wrote for my father…the one he never left. One of my highest goals with my artwork is to reach and help those battling suicide. It’s a battle that never truly ends until it does.

Behind The Paint-Working on the new painting I’ve been doing live on IG. “When Nobody Else Would Love Me (I Had To Learn To Love Myself)” is a work in progress much like myself. It requires daily effort and some days more than others. It’s necessary though to complete the painting…and to complete myself.

I’ve really enjoyed this color scheme and I think it is one of the most powerful. Some of these colors are of equal brilliance or intensity which results in some interesting optical effects. The color red is the color of physical energy, passion, courage, power, will, and desire. The Root Chakra is stable and grounding. Red is powerfully linked to our most primitive physical and emotional needs of survival and self preservation. Red symbolizes energy, action, confidence, courage, and change. Green is the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment. It is also the Heart Chakra and thus the color of love. Of course there are some variations and extensions of these colors in this painting, but they form a strong foundation and base. As complementary colors, working in conjunction with one another, they create balance.

You never know when FB and IG are going to crash again. Have yourself a backup plan and buy some art from yours truly so you have something to look at in case it does 😉
