“When Nobody Else Would Love Me (I Had To Learn To Love Myself)” sits on the easel. I often put it back on the easel because this concept is always a work it progress…learning to love myself. When it’s not on the easel, I hang it above my bed to serve as a reminder as I sleep beneath it. Some days I don’t like myself very much. Some days I really don’t like myself. Some days, I’d go so far as to say I even hate myself. I’m working on it though. What I have learned is that after spending far too many years seeking that love externally, I can only truly reach down and grasp that within myself. Until I find that self-love, everything external will be futile and fleeting. Self-love is hard, but who told you love would be easy…effortless? Nothing worthwhile is easy. Anything worthwhile is going to demand hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. Try to love yourself a little more each day and a little more on the days you don’t want to. Start with today.

We often struggle in life with stopping a behavior or pattern that inhibits us or moving forward and ending something we need to end to move on to something new because it is intimidating and we just don’t know what may happen. But…we just don’t know what may happen. Sometimes it is necessary to “Say Hello To Goodbye.”

“Faces Of The Parabox” is a subset derived 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. We often create our own boxes. This painting, “Mirror Rorrim (The Reflection)”,  reflects upon the only person that can change your life. It’s you!

“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.
