Who has seen the Robin Williams documentary on HBO? I just watched it last night, and wow! Such an incredible talent that we lost. There is so much to be learned from him. Life is short. Follow your passion. Find your voice, and be yourself. And of course, follow the advice of another of his quotes:⠀
“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.” ❤️
Talk to your girl let me know what you think🤔🤔❤️💆🏽♀️❤️🙏🏽I have been working on a new direction of art for a quick minute. This collection is culture inspired pop-art that features a “black hero” as the main character in the piece. I also describe my new art collection as a mixture of The Simpsons + Supreme cartoon style of artwork with a Wakanda + FUBU flavor. The goal is to have each piece strike a conversation and I would like to start that conversation with Charlie Sifford, The first African-American to play on the PGA tour. .
Charles Sifford was an African-American championship golfer who was instrumental in desegregating the PGA, and overall striping out the offensive "Caucasian Only" membership clause from its bylaws.
In all, Sifford would compete in some 422 PGA tournaments, coming in second twice, registering five third-place finishes, and winning nearly $350,000 in prize money. On the senior circuit he was equally successful, winning the 1975 Seniors' Championship and collecting $930,000 in winnings. .
More importantly, he helped pave the way for future African-American golfers including Lee Elder, the first black to play the Masters in 1975; Calvin Peete, who notched 12 PGA victories, including The Players Championship; and, of course, Tiger Woods. - biography.com
I will be moving this piece to a canvas, as well as a specially made piece for the upcoming art show with @trapxart .

Day 6/10 of Awakening: Earth-based Sprituality & Art - Residency 2018
✨each day playing with a different element , today WATER💦.
💧good timing - first day of rain so far🌧.
💧emotional, well-being, flow, cleansing, healing, transformation.
💧reflecting on how I feel when I create...
Рассматривая картины Патриса Мурсиано, я думала: «А возможно ли такое вообще нарисовать?»
Сhallenge was accepted и ответ перед вами. Возможно всё 🙌🏼
Точную копию я создать не пыталась, мне было интересно поиграть с цветом и красками.
Было очень весело, и процесс создания этой картины определенно доставил мне удовольствие. Наверное, поэтому я так его растягивала 😄
This beauty inspired by Patrice Murciano is finally ready and is waiting to be hung on the wall 🌟
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Throwback to one of my older artworks on paper mounted on a cradled wood panel.

Time for some more pieces on wood I think. This beautiful pond makes me want to paint more lotuses too! And the bench makes a perfect spot to sit and reflect in the midst of a busy day.
I had a beautiful artistic insight/reminder today while I was editing some of my new piano etudes. @radiojd and I are staying at a beautiful tiny home on a ranch in Paso Robles, and I decided why not spend an hour and just look over my recent pieces and listen to them a bit to see if there are any enhancements that I would like to make with them. In allowing myself to have fun with it, be light about it and be playful, I was able to download some fantastic improvements with the pieces that I had never considered before.
I was reminded that art and creativity and all of our endeavors are best manifested when we are in that state of relaxation, open heartedness and playfulness. In some ways it seems like it should be the other way around, where if I’m at my studio with my computer/piano working during my normal “work hours,” then that should be my best productivity. And while of course there are benefits from that and excitement that happens creating in that space, today I allowed myself to be outdoors where I feel grounded and relaxed, and in “doing” just a little bit of play time with my music in this way, I came to understand better what changes I would like to make. Then on Monday I can go to my studio and have fun playing out todays insights.
Here’s to creating art the joyful, happy, playful, lighthearted way 💙🙏 #inspiredliving#inspiredart#flow#appreciation#grounded#composerlife#playistheway
Just going to leave this right here...very little views or sounds I treasure more...so quiet, so still, the perfect place to reconnect and be reminded of how small we are and how BIG God is! 🙏🏼🙏🏼💙💙💚💚New items up in the shop!
