I am always a work in progress and so is this first painting from my “Puzzled Hearts” collection which will soon debut. I view each painting as  a poetic journal entry and they will be a hybrid of previous bodies of work with a bit more chaos and release. That is where my life currently is and that is the story I have to tell. They will be a mixture of techniques and may also have poems embedded in them. 

If you’ve missed it, I now have a weekly podcast with Vicente Enriquez that you can check out on Google Play, Apple Music, or just go to CariniArts.com + please grab some art while you’re there

“Knowhere To Go (Tale Of The Lost Shepherd)” references an older series I did titled “The Lost Shepherd,” which depicts hyper-realistic German Shepherds on abstract color grids. This story reflects upon how even the shepherd, the leader of the flock, can lose his or her way. Sometimes we don’t know where to go. Sometimes it may even feel like we have nowhere to go. Where are you going? I’m presently trying to figure out my path as I create it and I truly hope I know where to go soon…and I wish the same for you.

“A Nest For The White Raven”

White ravens are often bullied and pushed out of the nest by the “normal” ravens. I found this story very relatable. We all need a safe place to just be ourselves. We all need a safe place to build our nest and call home.
