Speak the Truth

Speak the Truth
Be YOU!
Laugh out loud—
Live out loud
Scream
Dream
Celebrate Joy
LIVE!
Celebrate Love
GIVE!

Speak the Truth
Be YOU
Look around you
At you
Make it be better,
’cause it could be worse
Hope
Untie the rope
Holding you back
Down
In place
and stale.

Speak the truth
See YOU
Live Out Loud
Be Proud
Embrace Freedom
Be true
Embrace You!

Hope this poem will resonate with others as it does me.

This poem came to me as I prepared to “go public” with my art to celebrate my late son’s birthday (Dec 9, 2010). I believe it was his spirit guiding me along so I could share our work with others. Mom loves you Josh!

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
