If you woke up one day and saw “The Clock” what would you do? And if that clock spoke and said “my friend, I’m sorry but this is what’s going to happen, your body and mind will being to fail you. Eventually you’ll be trapped in a rigid form of a human body and if your lucky the dementia like symptoms will make it so the sadness of what life has become won’t effect you, but it will burden and break the hearts of all those around you.” Yeah,….. What would you do?
Well I made dinner….Then I cried and threw up. I got pissed off, depressed over and over and over again. Then I started to live my life. Parkinson’s disease stripped my career and family from me. But I will not let it take my passion and will to be a great man in my lifetime. I am a Father, painter, poet and warrior. I will not go down without one hell of a fight and certainly not before I spread some love, light and art that our world so desperately needs. We’ve forgotten how live with passion and honoring the true nature of self. Most people don’t find those things until it’s very late in life and if their lucky enough to have the funds and health to enjoy their spiritual and emotion freedom then they do so in the “golden twilight” years of their life..
It’s beautiful and very magical to do so, but what about right now, today, tomorrow and the next while we’re all young enough to LIVE!!?
Here is a quick look at how the the space and studio is shaping up. Plus some of the things that are heading our way.
There is a bit of glare from the shop lights but I think you get the idea. There will be a large beautiful silver frame around Blue Moon the moon in this piece is large for the size of the over all panel thus giving it a larger frame will help add scale to the entire piece, I’m personally looking forward to seeing it in it’s full glory tomorrow.
When I was flying back from England last month I did a couple of drawings one of which I thought might make a good Tempest style piece.
This piece will bend and break dimensional norms blending background and foreground imagery at unexpected and hopefully intriguing times. I will also be starting a triptych of the My Girls as a commissioned set so stay tuned. As always thank you for your love and support I truly couldn’t do this without you. And please remember to always.
Be brave, be bold and thrive in the life you have.
You never know when it will change.
Much love and light
“A life in progress”
