Honourable Mention 23 June 2013 in Mustard Seeds and Lilies

From the Series “Generations”

Early last weekI I had this dream, of so many people that I worked with in my long art career… some sweet, kind, talented, brilliant, and some real assholes, and bigots… as well… lucky for me, as soon as I learned to recognize these people almost from the offset… but it took me a little time at the begining as I tried to work with everybody… The assholes and the bigot clients I dropped as some as I learned their character, didn’t matter how much money they paid me do do their work

During my art career I have had the pleasure to work with so many nice, beautiful, talented and kind people… Karen was one of those kind of persons that was so sweet and kind. I was in my early 20’s and she was in her mid 40’s a divorced lady and a native New York-core… as she used to say… I learned of her passing a few years ago, but she comes into my dreams from time to time… so early last week I sat down and painted some of these faces as I remembered them… then I took off the last 4 days and caught up on my movies, and reading…
Funny how dreams take you back to long ago places and events and people… funny like that

As a self-taught working artist, I have always believed that we are all blessed with gifts. It’s up to us to recognize and develop them; to what extent we will use those gifts to benefit others that cross our path.

    Dreams are such powerful things. We, as a people, now do not give dreams the importance that actually have in our lives. They can help us to actually work through our problems and become better people. Beautiful tribute to your friend. :o)
