Close up view of “When Nobody Else Would Love Me (I Had To Learn To Love Myself)” behind the scenes. It’s difficult to convey the level of detail without seeing it in person, but this shot certainly helps. It’s often difficult to see the work we put in from the outside, but it’s still important to do that work for ourselves. Over time, that little bit of work each day really starts to add up. Life and self-love really are a marathon and not a sprint. Do the work and the rewards will follow. In fact, learn to see the work as the reward and you’ll learn to love it…and yourself in the process.

Fractured Realities And Dreams Brought To Light. This painting tells the story of a female phoenix rising from the ashes. This painting is dedicated to Deanne Hastings. I remember creating this one after she broke her clavicle.

“The Up-Side of Down” was inspired by a 2009 assault and battery that hospitalized Carini with multiple facial fractures, severe eye trauma, and a concussion. Carini’s signature icon, which he saw flashing in his head during his concussive state, is a key repeating element in this series that represents life growing from death and discovering the positives in negatives.

Featured: Within The Bounds Of Without. Original and reproductions available. We are only bound by the boundaries that we create for ourselves. Next month will mark the 10 year anniversary of the experience that set me free and gave birth to my signature icon, “The Up-Side of Down” series, and Acrylic Alchemy.

“The Illumination of Elusive Illusion” was the first painting I did when revisiting this series in 2016, after departing from it for several years. I will be revisiting it again soon with a new twist. I like to cycle back and forth between bodies of work as I fill in the gaps and work on self-development. I’m always a work in progress.

Behind the paint in the art studio. I’m working on some glazing techniques this weekend. Slowing things down a little bit to embrace the process and learning to love painting again.

It is said that time heals all wounds but perhaps that time comes in a different state of existence or unexpected ways and connections. I woke up this morning, before my alarm clock went off, from a vivid dream about my dad. In an effort to shift my attention, I opened up IG and the first thing I saw was a beautiful story shared by Cat Zingano addressing the same thing. It felt like the universe was telling me today was a day that someone somewhere might need to hear this.

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact segmentations of energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time.

Featured: .38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness). This painting reflects the fraction of a second it takes to change an entire connection of intertwined lives and energies. It depicts a suicide victim being embraced by an angel at the moment of impact. I used to paint exclusively in an effort to heal myself and my own wounds. Nowadays, I paint to hopefully inspire, but more so in an effort to save a life, perhaps one I don’t even know. I would love to help people grow but the first step to growth is survival…and some days merely surviving is growth. Hold on.

If you are struggling with issues of suicide, please call 1-800-273-8255.
