Braska and I finally finished setting up our new room and she loves it…and that makes me happy. A lot of uncomfortable but necessary life changes lately. I’m taking some big chances on myself because, upon reflection, my life just wasn’t what I wanted it to be and I was very unhappy. If you’re unhappy with your life, you may need to make some decisions that will make you temporarily uncomfortable as you reset and put yourself back on a track towards happiness. I no longer have the studio space I once did or the security of regular work, but I have opened myself up to the universe and new opportunities. I will make do with what I have for the time being and look forward to what is to come. Take chances. Invest in yourself. Make the jump.

Braska is always very interested in my work and doing her kitty quality control checks.

The “10 Year Table Canvas” spans a decade of visions, creations, and more than 10 bodies of work. Within its depths lie the tangible blood, sweat, and tears of this man beneath the paint. It is a deeply textured and layered history in its purest and most raw form. Encompassing hundreds of paintings that paradoxically unite to create one, it is nothing short of an intimate self portrait of myself, the Acrylic Alchemist.

I think this is one of my most special and valuable pieces. For 10 years, I wiped my palette knife on my table and this is the result. There is a piece of every single painting from over a decade in this one piece, essentially making it a collective portfolio of sorts. The energy is raw and palpable. The textures are insane and represent a three dimensional map of my life. I can still pinpoint certain paintings I was working on at certain times and stages of my life, from the bottom and the top, within this painting. Although I generally don’t allow people to touch my paintings because of the damage caused by oils from the hands, this is a painting I insist that people touch. It will touch you.
If you like my work or my stories, please share. I couldn’t do what I do without your support. I offer free shipping worldwide, interest free payment plans, and have now added an option to make an offer on your favorite canvas prints. You can see them all at CariniArts.com or this one HERE

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.

This painting 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.
