Focusing art on the Black experience: Fiction & Testing Original Facts
Focusing on an original apple can be as original as God’s creation of Eve, but drawn or painted to appear as flesh, whether fruit or human, without blemishes, yet if an apple’s skin is painted orange, is it an apple?
Scotch tape used to hold down paper is not the same as what is used for taping down tarp; tape will not work when a strong wind blows. Should I use stronger tape?
An artist’s imagination is not different from a non-artist or from that of a child, yet nor is a child’s imagination equal to or greater than that of an artist or non-artist.
Even when poured from a faucet, fresh spring water tastes like a winter-ice-melting glazier that is covered in snow.
Every so often, the sun creates shadows that do not cast yet exist extended within a shadow. So if there is no shadow, does the image exist?
Focusing on my artwork, I depict those often overlooked thoughts in some lives and even theirs and ours. These overlooked facets of life or rather sparkle of life expose how we, they, and they arrange our lives and neglect that which is obvious about some lives and self.
We may wonder about their purpose or ours either daily or within moments of a month, yet we find opposition of the medium intriguing them.
Seeking we lose a sense of self in what we find, but we burn more guilt or more so: God’s anger does not deter them or us from original sin.
While the nature of an atom is to hold, and the nature of the flesh is to contain. In and of itself, there is a will, a will to explode.
Focusing sometimes on creating works of art is
Beautiful, amazing, charming, and everywhere.
Sometimes art appears in the simplest word or through the quietest sound ever heard.
Sometimes art is felt in an embrace.
It can even come from the heart. No matter what or where;
almost anything is art.

I offer originally produced & reproduction of artworks.
Originals consist of drawings that I compose from memory or observations on paper produced as oils on canvas, watercolor on paper, and or digitally created paintings and drawings.
Reproductions consist of portraits drawn from photographs and digitally generated inkjet prints of created original artworks in paintings and drawings reproduced as museum quality 100% rag or canvas Giclee prints.
I rarely draw from photographs, but if I do use them, I use them for compositional references.
Giclee prints are museum-quality prints on 100% archival acid-free rag paper or treated canvas materials. Each provides a vivid reproduction of original artwork, often at 23.32% less cost of its original oil painting, watercolor, or color drawing sell price. Current research on Giclee’s years an image last before fading is three-times longer than other printing methods. Giclee prints will retain its original color vibrancy and visual quality only matched by the artwork it represents. That is, providing prints are properly displayed and not in direct sunlight or introduced to toxic chemicals in the air. Prints of any kind should be protected behind archival glass, acid-free matting, and are reasonably framed.
Art & Healing
Creativity is a freeing process that channels negative thoughts and actions. It is transforming physically and psychologically. Yet, it is bondage, an original portrait of everything we dare think of that keeps what is in us or helps heal us. Notion begat form, and the endangered species lose sight of its vision, though we aspire to be free; creativity imagines us there.
But how do we accomplish healing? How do we channel creative energy in this way? How do we turn artistic actions into healing properties? The answer lurks in being willing to make self-awareness a goal.
Painting & Drawing
I have looked into the eyes and at the hands of people and have seen them create breathtaking works of art.
I have witness originality being shaped and have experienced the pouring out of creativity.
I have witness people give drawings and paintings that extra appeal.
Throughout, the use of artist tools brought forth self-awareness, an appreciation for art, and healing powers.
Color & Form
Some properties work together while others will never.
Within all things is Color. Blue, Red, and Yellow form properties of reality. The form is natural like a leaf or geometric like a square. Together with color and form become the properties that present something real.
Yet, color is subjective, and so is a form. A black and white or a color image of the same image is familiar? Although, subjective. Is it the form of an image or the color of that image that makes it real?
