THIS PAINTING IS 18X18 DONE ON CANVAS WITH ACRYLIC PAINT. ENJOY AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.

“UNTITLED EXPRESSION”

THIS IS AN ABSTRACT PIECE I HAVE RECENTLY PAINTED IN ACRYLIC.

ENJOY THIS PIECE AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. IT CURRENTLY REMAINS UNTITLED. THE PIECE IS 17X14 ON MIXED MEDIA.

“AUTOPILOT”

IM ALWAYS INTERESTED IN HOW MY BRAIN WILL REACT WHEN I STRIP AWAY ALL THE PRE CONCEIVED THOUGHTS OF CREATING SOMETHING. I HAVE BEEN GETTING MORE AND MORE COMFORTABLE WITH TAKING RISKS AND SEEING WHERE THEY LEAD ME.

I DONT MEAN IT IN THE TERM A PERSON MIGHT BE FAMILIAR WITH BUT I MEAN IT IN A SENSE THAT I AM AN AWARE BLACK ARTIST WHO WISHES TO NOT BE CONFOUND TO A STEREOTYPE OF WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING. FOR ME I FEEL AS IF IM JUST BEGINNING MY FLIGHT TO DISCOVERING MY TRUE POTENTIAL. HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS PIECE WAS DONE WITH ACRYLIC PAINT AND SOFT PASTELS ON MIXED MEDIA PAPER.
