A New Chapter: This is a chance to share myself to the world regardless of what others think, I'm willing to be the unique expression after professional boxing and traumatic brain injury survivor.I have freedom to live my life and forget the mistakes of the past and press on. Can you relate?
Art is beautiful! as a kid growing up I will see my older brother draw, he is the artist in the family known as the ”Z – Artist” today he is living in California doing his thing as the ”Z-Artist” does. This is an oil painting of what my older brother Michael did, of Jimi Hendrix.
And of course this is me at the top right of the page, my first pencil drawing when I was at the brain facility. Art to me means alot! I realize this while I was confused about mine life sitting in a brain facility and I realized I had nothing else to look at after mine professional boxing career that I had nothing! I also realized while sitting in a “insane asylum” to sober up and to understand who I was as an alcoholic, maybe I could be somebody and be happy and walk a journey that God has set forth for me to see.
Art reminds me true meaning of inspiration and dreams and I still dream. I believe in my vision and yet art allows me not to forget my past. I now can understand and say art makes me feel alive, comfortable within me, that it makes so much sense to continue. Do you understand what I am saying?
Art allows me now to pursue a feeling of passion, a feel of being centered, filled with energy and life….don’t you see? I am now open to the pleasure and experiences of peace and tranquility. I am actually appreciating the beauty and the peace of precious moments with the canvas and sketch books.
This is mine beginning Art of Acrylic painting abstract called ” Woman stand strong” 18×24″ black framed. I guess you can say, I was into all colors and forms reaching to a level of all righteous, learning about colors and myself as a painter with a brush and trying to stroke in a correct manner. Now that I am going to school to learn about the “ART WORLD” I now appreciate life’s precious’s moments. I will continue to place more of mine Art work and feelings here as time goes on.
