New Painting, "My Kingdom Awaits"
24" x 48"
Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas
This painting will be featured in my upcoming Art Show next month.
"I’m coming home I’m coming home tell the world I’m coming home Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes I’m coming home, I’m coming home tell the World I’m coming Back where I belong I’ve never felt so strong feeling like there’s nothing that I can’t try and if you feel me put your hands high " -Diddy/Gray/Cole
Finished up a new piece. Who's to say hip hop music can't inspire? I love the energy this song gave me while playing in the studio.
The soft bright colors reflect the Spring Fever that has taken over our household. I always imagine myself walking through these forests I paint, and in the midst of getting lost in this one I couldn't help but think of the beauty that awaits when we truly arrive home...wherever that may be, maybe for some it's literal and for others it's only a feeling, a metaphor. When we truly realize our full potential, our dharma, our abundant life, and the sacredness of each present moment we can see that it's all so beautiful, even the sad parts.
