More painty things….

In between real life and what I call real life there’s a time I paint. Sometimes it’s two minutes sometimes it’s two days without sleep, enough whiskey to make Charles proud and enough tears to make Plath smile. Life has been going by so quickly these days I feel like I’m hardly painting but then I realize that I’ve never really stopped. Someone asked me the other night if I show my work… An it made me think of all the lives I’ve been blessed to know and come in contact with. How many pieces of original artwork I’ve strewn across this world… The question made me smile and I replied “Yes, I show my work.”
Living a life with a un-curable progressive neurological disorder illness isn’t the way I planned to spend the rest of my life but at least I can say when it’s all said and done that I live, loved, painted and wrote with all that I was. I hope in your lives you too can feel what’s it’s like to live. Not without fear, worry or pain, but live through it to the amazing freedom that lives on the other side.
Please enjoy the current works in progress.

And as it so often happens during the course I me putting this post together the above piece has changed so more photos will follow but may be out of context….sorry.
Then we have the blue/green that is for the same group of people.

This piece is funny to photo, due to the layering it’s really hard to get a full body shot that actually captures the depth that’s going on within this piece, so one close up is in order so that you may better see what I see.

Then completely out of order :-/ we have the most recent photo of the red/yellow work:

More in line with how this post started, I’d like to remind everyone myself included. To always
Be Brave, Be Bold and Thrive in the life you have. It’ll change.. So hold on to the people and places that made or make your heart smile. It’s a long but fast journey that we have on this planet. Make it the best day ever….

Much love.
Benjamin

  1. I’ve been ‘off’ blogging for a bit whilst I try to sort my life out.
    You are one of only a handful of people who have inspired me to seize my life and live it. One is my neighbour is slowly dying of secondary cancer and you are also a significant person who has made me feel that life is for living.
    The other major person who has helped me through all this is the new man in my life, who like you, is always positive no matter what.

    Thank you Benjamin for giving me hope and inspiration. You are a remarkable man xo
