Bringing the constantly fantastic and painfully insane together daily!

Painting all day…

on October 29, 2014

When hurricane Katrina hit she took everything, everything. At first the big things left me reeling – jobless for the first time since I was 13 and having lost not only my childhood home but the home I had just bought. I looked at my daughter and was at a total loss. Slowly as life took shape again I started to feel a deeper, almost more grave loss. All of my photos, of my art, all of my poetry, all of my journals. I went into a shock like state of just pushing forward. It took years for me to really start writing and even longer to do any real art. This year has been a huge year for my art to actually emerge, thanks to God and my wife.

This coming month I will be working with my sister on getting my paintings photographed so I can have prints available. I am actively working as a face painter and exploring a new art interest/opportunity! Monday I was all set to sew up the kids costumes and then BANG – painting happened. lol Truly as life is swirling around up and as scary as it is right now, I am sooo blessed I can’t express it.
