“ALL GOOD IN THE HOOD”

ALL GOOD IN THE HOOD COMES FROM THE APPRECIATION EITH MY SURROUNDINGS AND FINDING THE SUBTLE YET RAW BEAUTY THAT IS HIDDEN IN EVERY CRACK AND CREVICE.. THE VISUALS FROM A HOOD MUCH LIKE THE ONES YOU SEE ON TV.. OCCUPIED WITH DISMAY AND HOPE WITH POLICE AND STRUGGLE WITH TRASH AND VACANCY.. WITH BROKEN DREAMS AND THE BIGGEST ASPIRATIONS.. THIS IS ITS ALL GOOD IN THE HOOD AND TO ME THE HOOD IS ALWAYS GOOD.

(These visuals reflect my personal observation and a small glimpse into the East New York, Crown Heights and Brownsville neighborhoods in Brooklyn. All areas I’ve lived in one time or another in my life. Hope you and enjoy and stay Woke)

“SUDDEN EXPRESSION”

MY RECENT WATERCOLOR PAINTING COMES AS A COMPLETE SURPRISE AND TOTALLY SPONTANEOUS IN METHOD. AT THE VERY BEGINNING MY INTENTION WAS TO BE ABSTRACT BUT I DIDNT KNOW HOW CONSUMED I WOULD BE BY THE ACT OF ADDING LAYERS AND LAYERS OF WHAT I FELT WERE COMPLEX HARD TO EXPRESS GESTURES. I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT MY FUEL WHILE PAINTING THIS PIECE WAS A MUSICAL PIECE CALLED DAN ASHER FROM A BAND CALLED SHADES OF GRAY WHICH I KEPT ON REPEAT THE ENTIRE TIME. I FEEL MY JOURNEY OF JUST BECOMING MORE OF AN EXPRESSIONISTS IS SOMETHING THAT I AM JUST AT THE BEGINNING OF. I HOPE YOU ALL CONTINUE TO CHECK IN ON MY VISUALS AND GIVE ME FEED BACK. THE PIECE IS APPROXIMATELY 8×10 IN SIZE AND WAS DONE WITH WATERCOLOR ON SKETCH PAPER.
