Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box. We all create our own boxes and some more than others.
“Flesh Of My Flesh (Deribon)” tells a story of creation and the interconnectedness of relationships. If you look closely, you may spot a large figure in the upper right corner and a much smaller figure in the bottom right. The smaller figure is in a state of genesis, feeding and growing from the nourishment and energy of the other.

This painting does have ties to a specific creation story, referencing Eve being created from the rib of Adam. Shortly after this painting was completed, someone vandalized it, puncturing and cutting through it right where Eve’s rib is. I had to patch Eve’s rib and carefully mend it, which I feel added to the symbolism and energy of the painting.

Working on “Just A Little Piece Of Herstory” in the studio. Really enjoy doing these “Puzzled Hearts.” I also have “Puzzled Hearts Minis” available as I fight to raise exhibition funds for KAABOO Del Mar next month. I need your support and am also taking on commissions.

Please also check out CariniArts.com to see my painting class schedule, blog, and podcast. This week on the podcast we discuss knowing your worth and asking for what you want from life.

Braska and I need your help!

Next month we will be exhibiting at KAABOO Del Mar and we have some great ideas for an exhibit display, but we need to generate the resources to make it happen. We have an idea for a huge central heart photo op based on the concept of love and also want to bring some of our bigger and more valuable paintings, including “As The Caged Bird Sings” and the “10 Year Table Canvas” (for people to touch). Please help us bring this dream to fruition. 

If you’re looking for art for your home or office, we have a solution for you. I’m currently accepting commissions and am also offering specials on many of my older originals (ridiculous rates on select pieces). You can visit my online shop for affordable canvas prints, apparel, and decor. I can ship worldwide and offer payment plans. You can also take advantage of current specials on #MostlyForHer poems and original minis, which are very affordable and eco-friendly recycled art.

Looking for more? Check out CariniArts.com for my class schedule, blog, and rapidly growing podcast. This week we discuss social media and who you are vs. who you portray yourself to be. Please give it a listen and let me know what you want us to discuss on a future segment.

The minimalist flower paintings are a subset collection from “The Boy In The Box” series. Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box. These flowers were very liberating to create.

I have one original available and ready to hang canvas prints of all of them. See them HERE

Check out CariniArts.com to see my podcast, blog, and class schedule. I’ll be having an open class at California Pizza Kitchen (Fashion Valley) on the 27th and this week on “Sunny Side Of San Diego” we discuss social media, going after your dreams, and who you are vs. who you portray yourself to be.

Around 2016 I did a small collection of minimalistic flower pieces that were a deviation from “The Boy In The Box” series. I still have one small original (24" x 24") and a variety of canvas prints available. Check them out HERE

I Am Who Am (I)

Identity is such a key component and I’m often evaluating and reevaluating who it is that I’ve been, who it is that I am, and who it is that I am becoming. I think it’s important to question that and question it often. Are you truly being and becoming your best self?
