Today is my mom’s Birthday, which should by all means be a day of celebration. Today is also the anniversary of my father’s suicide. Featured in the first image is “.38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness)”, which depicts an angel embracing a suicide victim at the moment of impact. I’m very thankful that I was given an opportunity to pull this painting off the racks this weekend to display it publicly for the first time in an exhibition about recovery and art therapy at the Expressive Arts Institute. The Expressive Arts Institute also provided me a platform two years ago to debut my 5 year project, “Reign Upon Sonrise”, which was, in part, highlighted by the suicide note I wrote for my father…the one he never left. One of my highest goals with my artwork is to reach and help those battling suicide. It’s a battle that never truly ends until it does.

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.

Those that have been on the bottom have a deep appreciation for the little things in life, no matter how minuscule or minute, because they know what it means and how it feels to have nothing. That’s where the “Beautiful Accidents” series was born. 

Recycled art created from the remnants of my palettes, these “Beautiful Accidents” are based upon the Japanese aesthetic concepts of wabi, sabi, and shibui. Beauty is everywhere if you are only willing to open your eyes to see it. I challenge you to not only see it, but to create it and add to it today.

Featured: Regenaissance (Piece 1). “Regenaissance (Polyversikube)” is a nine canvas polyptych conceptually inspired by the principle elements of fractals, the Golden Ratio, and a Rubik’s Cube. The name “Regenaissance” is an abstract composite derived from the words Renaissance (meaning “rebirth”) and Genesis (meaning “the beginning”). Presented in a 3 x 3 structural format, each of the nine components can be moved, rotated, and rearranged so that any side of any element can connect to any side of any of the other eight pieces. The result of the calculated configurations is a broad and almost limitless spectrum of orientations and variations with which to play; 95,126,814,720 to be exact.

The remaining pieces are about to go on display with Alexander Salazar-Fineart at Fit Athletic Fit Athletic Downtown San Diego. Other works currently on exhibit at Fit Athletic Carmel Mountain.

People, things, and material possessions will always come and go but I will always come back to my lady of the night, for she is the only one that ever makes me feel truly whole, if only for a second 🌹 I started the art journal 📓 around 2011 when I was closed to being homeless and didn’t have the resources to paint 🎨 Painting the words in the journal satiated that desire, if only on a minimal scale, until I could generate the resources to paint again. I then started sharing those entries for others who might be struggling 👩‍🎨

Happy Thanksgiving!
