A Life in Paint
Art. The mere sound of the word sends confusion to the uninformed mind. Artists and art can seem daunting, strange, and to some, something that doesn't really come to mind. Some call it a luxury item. Perhaps it is, but I can't imagine a world without it. Could you imagine a world without art, music or literature? Yikes!
So, we have this piece, Don't Listen to the Mirror. Pretty crazy-looking painting, isn't it? At first glance, yes, but on closer observation, there's a lifetime of flow and painting. That's what it takes to create genuine work. The years of experiences flow into the work and then that flows back out to the world by how the artist translates everything. True art-lovers and collectors understand this. They can read this in the work.
With this painting, I wanted to demonstrate how a young woman can be hacked on by bullshit. Such as, the media, like fashion mags and rags. Pht! Girls, do you REALLY think all females should look the same??? Don't listen to the media. Listen to your own self-worth. Be intelligent and have faith in yourself and your abilities. Contribute something that helps and inspires others to do the same. Be classy. You have so much to offer in your own way. We all come in various shapes, sizes, colors, creeds, and energy levels. Follow YOUR gut, your guidance system. It'll never let you down.
So, when you look into the mirror, see the true you, somebody that does not come with a price.
