Limits. Limited. Unlimited. Advanced. Certified. Divine. These are all words that we hear over and over for one reason or another. We are creative and art inspired since birth. Retaining creativity is hard as an adult because of the factors of life lead us to not even think about what we want to create. Some of us are crippled by not knowing where to start when it comes to doing artwork in general. One of the reasons that I know that everyone is creative is because of all of our dreams that happen at night. Your dream state and series of dreams allow you to explore ideals that we do not commonly partake in real life.
A constant dream that happens to me is that I keep thinking that I am flying above ground with another spirit that happens to be female. There are also very violent dreams of me either helping someone get away with murder or being killed off myself by some killer or horror movie inspired aspect. It is brilliant creativity both good and bad that drives us in the direction of our daily lives. We are driven and our desires of our personal dreams may lead to creativity in real life in various forms. My focus as of late has been grant funding from a business prospective yet my focus from a physical prospective has been to be deep into fitness.
Fitness for me has been both good and bad. The bad aspect of fitness is common knowledge as it has mostly to do with muscle soreness. The good aspect of fitness is the progress of being more active as well as losing body fat. Various fitness routines that I have done lately have to do with body weight exercises. Yoga has been done in the past but not being able to do a handstand out of Yogi’s pose got to me. So, I learned different way to do a handstand. One way is by falling down into a push-up and standing on my hands while I also started at a sitting position into a cartwheel lately.
I say all of this because creativity has empowered my life to become better than yesterday and to progress daily. There are so many people that look at visual artisans as if they are musicians. One painting is loved for a moment and the next painting is treated as if it is not better than the last. Musicians paint a picture in vocals on their album and hope that it is loved while everyone loves the album while awaiting the next album. It is the same amount of pressure between both artists. This is the reason for most productive artists to constantly develop and produce new displays of creativity with each piece of artwork.
I have done a lot of artwork over the past six months. It may be the best artwork of my whole art career so far. The pictures are posted on my various websites and in video form on my YouTube account. The following are various pieces of the artwork that I have done:
I will try to post on this art blog every few months to keep this up to date with the latest in my art career. I hope all of this that I posted has been a pleasure to read. Thanks and take care of yourself!
In art, nothing is perfect but we try to make all things that we do as perfect as we can make it. My digital camera can not be found and the charger cord for it needs to be replaced. It is just the difficulty that needs to be dealt with accordingly. This is he painting I have been doing in about 2 days with a combination of 4 hours touching on the painting not including the drying process or the acrylic sealer placed on it with waiting time afterwards. I hope it will be enjoyable to all who love my paintings. I try as much as I can to improve on my art style. Thanks in advance!
This painting was a process as it took longer than I have taken on most of my paintings. In my
own head, this painting was to be done sometime next year but those plans changed when I was
looking through my paintings and saw a painting that I never really liked that I did. In the past, I
have painted over a couple of paintings with success but the skills that I have taught myself
through such a process has made me approach the re-painting or paint over process a bit
The painting that I painted was pretty much an abstract abstract. Thank God that is not a double
negative but in my eyes; it was a double negative. It was plain to see on my painting called “Birds
Unite” that it was spirits of birds uniting and that was not really anything I planned to do. It was a
time when I was painting at least 3 paintings a week and just did the painting without planning
This painting is the companion piece for “The Wilderness Part One.” Art is done and it comes
from the heart. “The Wilderness Part One” was the first painting that I planned out on how I
would paint certain paintings. I was unsure that it would work as I paint at the drop of a dime at
times. The details of the painting took time to do as I mostly use the color black do do that
effect on my past paintings. I have reached responses about this painting many times and it
has been one of my most cherished paintings.
“The Wilderness Part One” took one week to complete but “The Wilderness Part Two” took more
time than that. I neglect to say how long it took for me to finish this painting because that does not
matter. The process it took to complete the painting matters more. The background of this painting
is green and it was painted forest green two times over. This was done to cover up the painting from
before. It is also the base color in the abstract world of the forest. The giant leaves on the painting are
there to show a close up version of what the forest basically entails.
The tiger that has a base color in orange with white and black details is to show the animal nature of
those who roam in the forest as a way of life. This tiger is there to show you his courage and his
dangerous persona. The roses, dandilions and violets are there to show that nature is beautiful as God
has shown unbelievable beauty in things that are created. The falling of the leaves is an ode to the
companion pieces I did before called “The End of Fall Part One” and “The End of Fall Part Two” as they
showcased the fall weather as well as the change in nature. The butterflies and caterpillars are
showcased as it is a constant tribute to my best friend who is a “Soulful Butterfly.” That is a play on
words and on a painting that I did for her.
This painting is taught me a lesson in what is next in my painting career. This painting is 16×20″ on
CottonDuck Stretched Canvas and I must do bigger paintings now. I think that it is the right time as
it gives me more room to express myself artistically. This journey of me being “The Next Picasso” is
just the beginning as I am more creative than I actually know about. This is just my second year of
painting and I have reached to many lovers of art. Take your time to love the art that is out there from
fellow artistians as they have the most developed as well as intelligent, creative minds out there.
