In honor of Valentine’s Day week, I’m sharing some of my love themed paintings. This painting detail shot, which was featured in my recent blog post, is “When Nobody Else Would Love Me (I Had To Learn To Love Myself).” The journey of self-love is the most difficult journey you will ever embark upon, but also the most necessary. Check out my new blog post at CariniArts.com and sign up for my newsletter for the latest updates, shows, and specials. This original painting is available and looking for a home.

“I Will Finally Let You Love Me (Because I Learned To Love Myself).” Acrylic and aerosol on panel. 25in x 40in. Original and prints available.

This 2016 painting is the sequel to my painting “I Will Never Let You Love Me (Because I Could Never Love Myself)” from 2010. I would love to say it only took that 6 years to discover and build self-love but the truth is that it has been a lifetime of work and will likely be a perpetual work in progress until the end of my days. Some days I really feel it and some days I really don’t…but I’m still here fighting and working on it…and that’s my progress because God knows there have been many days I didn’t want to be. Self-love is hard but it will open your eyes and change your life. Hang in there and keep working on it. You are valuable. You are beautiful.

Featured: Detail shot from “The Day Pandora Set Me Free (Misteriora).” Acrylic on canvas. 60in x 60in. Original and prints available.

I was able to pull some of my biggest and best works off the rack last week for a studio visit. If you’re looking for big art for your home or office, I’ve got some wonderful options for you.

This bright and energetic painting tells the story of Pandora’s Box being opened. As “The Boy In The Box,” it also alludes to escaping and discovering my freedom from the literal and metaphorical boxes of my life. We all have them. With that freedom comes an inherent energy and chaos that must be channeled. Knowledge may be a dangerous weapon, but it’s also a great and beautiful gift that can save the world if handled with both love and care.

“Reflection, Rebuilding, Redemption, And Rebirth Of The Repentant” reflects upon and highlights the only person boxing you in and holding you down in life. It’s you. You are the only person that can change your life and it’s not always a one time thing. Sometimes you have to pick yourself up again, and again, and again.

It all begins with a conversation with yourself. You have to be honest with who you really are, where you really are, and why you’re really there. It’s nobody else’s fault. This is on you. You must then forgive everyone that has ever hurt you, including yourself. From there, you need to tear yourself down back to the core and rebuild. You have to fill all of the cracks in the foundation that you tried to avoid and cover your entire life. Only then can you truly free yourself and be reborn to rise like a phoenix.

There are going to be a lot of dark nights in this life. Ignite your own flame and become your own light. Use that light to guide yourself and to share with those still trapped in their own darkness.
