This week provided some stiff tests and some of them, quite honestly, I failed miserably. Some I handled quite well, but the one major failure is what I’m still feeling eating away at my core. I’m doing my best to let go, but that is not my strength. In fact, it’s probably my greatest weakness in many regards. I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn in life. Some days are incredibly difficult, and I was reminded of that every morning this week just trying to get out of bed. I pushed myself to do so, but it hurt like hell. Some days I wonder how much strength I have left to continue the fight. For now, I’m thankful that I’m still here and that I managed to keep going…though it wasn’t pretty and still hurts tremendously. Sometimes the hope and faith that things will get better is the only thing I feel I really have. For now, I’ll do my best to hold on to that. I know I have a lot of things to be thankful for, and that’s precisely why my personal demons like to surface and resurface the one thing I desire that seems to perpetually elude me.

Latest piece is complete and I’ve stuck with the theme of a grey base in honor of mental health awareness…this one focusing on blue greys and the feeling of drowning in that grey period. I currently have four pieces from my “Puzzled Hearts” collection available. Message me to get yours or request a commission.

This was one of my favorite shoots with Christa Maier and, thematically, I’m finding it very relatable as of late.

Braska was helping me move work around the studio today as I prepare to start a new painting for my “Puzzled Hearts” collection. I’m going to stay in a more neutral and desaturated color palette for the next few paintings as I stay heavily focused on the struggles and triumphs of mental health…thinking blue greys for the next one. I’ll be posting plenty of progress shots.

All of the work you see me create is available. If you are interested in a piece, message me and I’ll be happy to assist you. You can always post and share my work, which really helps me tremendously. You make what I do possible by sharing my stories. Thank you to everyone that supports me, particularly as I dive into deeper and darker themes that need to be openly explored.
