This quote popped into my mind when creating my latest painting titled "Rejuvenate" and hopefully it will resonate in many of my future pieces. Rejuvenate has also brought me back to my roots as an illustrator, or as I like to call myself, and Illustrative Fine Artist. Our world is fast paced and hectic with the internet feeding us a continuous barrage of bad news, you have to dig for the good stuff you know, it's buried deep! Cost of living, cost of healthcare, crime, injustice towards one another is all on the rise according to our media outlets, and there's NO END IN SIGHT!?! Wow, I have to admit, I fell right into that trap. I realized that years ago I was a much more laid back individual that could focus when I needed to and yet still enjoy the things that made my life worth living. I miss that guy, so I decided to produce a painting that reflects the one thing that we can control...our very own state of mind! Artwork is my temporary escape from an insane world but with this piece in particular I wanted to say "stop what your doing, light a candle, have a glass of wine or a bowl of ice cream (or better yet, have both), pet your dog and let the rejuvenation begin!
Have a peaceful day!
