Human Spirit – (24″ x 30″ mixed media on canvas)

We’ve all experienced the indescribable pain we feel when we lose someone we love. Yet we know inside we must go on. I wish I could paint away yours, I wish you could wipe away mine. But, it is what makes us appreciate so deeply life’s moments of joy. May this remind you that you are not alone, and that one day you shall again know joy.

Painful Dance – Part 2 (7.5″ x 12″ mixed media on masonite)

I’m trying to recapture the joy, to grab a hold of those bright warm rays and put them in my pocket. But at the moment, while the sun shines brightly outside, inside there is rain, and so much pain. But know this, still I dance. And I paint. I know, as should you, that these clouds won’t be here forever. So mark your calendar, we’re going to a celebration, now DANCE. Even if it’s painful, DANCE! And together we’ll celebrate the return of brighter days. (More than this simple painting, is perhaps the message I was used to deliver. We all go through things that get us down. We all have had moments that weigh on our soul and left us feeling as if nobody cared. A special shout out to the collectors/SOUL/SPIRIT protectors that reminded ME to never stop dancing. – TMNK

Ouch!!!

Walking along life’s debris strewn path, wounded and afflicted along the way. Each step, each day a delicate balance. Each traveler with their own burdens. At times feeling like head, heart or both could explode at any moment.
This soul a rupturing aneurysm, has chosen canvas upon which to spill. – TMNK

Soaking up inspiration…

I once read that to be great you should surround yourself with great people.  So tonight, with a drink in one hand, I’m vibing on the Dalai Lama.  Should make for some interesting art. As for the gifts YOU may have received. In giving, I received, JOY INSIDE. Yo, I’m serious as a fart on an elevator, ya smell me? LOL
