Broken Wings, 2007, oil on canvas, 10 x 9 inches
Yes it has been a while since I've actually finished a painting. Was getting worried if I should still call myself an artist or not. I feel good today, not just because of the finished piece, but because this painting made me realize something. It made me realize that I am very happy to be an artist. Things in life will always change, events will arise that could shake the very ground one walks on, but the advantage as an artist is that no matter how much life may change art will always be there. The drive and the passion to create will never stop. Painting is getting me through some changes at this moment and it's such a good feeling to find myself helping me get through it all by painting some more.
