My life is full of color!

I hate throwing away all my spray paint cans, so I started decorating them for fun and it started turning into a fun colorful collection!

Colors that heal

I sold this painting to one of the best professors I've ever had. I took her Social Morality: National Issues Undergrad Class, and she was so inspirational. Turns out she fell in love with my paintings, this one in specific, she was so excited to own this painting, and it was actually the first one I sold! She will be bringing this painting to her future classes and using it to help teach methods of breathing and meditation! How cool is that?!

Positive Art in our Society.

©2010 ℕO⊻∧

The process of art-making creates an optimal experience within the artist and the viewer. In Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's book, "Flow, the psychology of Optimal Experience", he describes what he called "optimal experience"- being so involved in an activity that you lose sense of time, place, and self. Others call it "the zone". This flow experience is what keeps us coming back to our projects. However, flow as described in the book is not just "having a nice time", it is a powerful force and can contribute to better mental health, greater individual complexity and growth.

Personally, the optimal experience is one of the best feelings in this world. I can't imagine never feeling it.

Through creativity we can clear our minds of emotional poison, we can reach into the depths of our Being and find hope, love, truth, peace. We can spread this through creative expression. We can acknowledge being a live.

Gives me goosebumps.

Here's a portion from a book I just read, written Alex Grey, and it's something that carries so much truth and will stay with me forever: " There are many other levels of success. Money and fame come to mind. If you are a serious artist and you are aware of the art marketplace and the art game as defined in art magazines, you can respond to contemporary art history and make objects that grow out of the art-historical imperative. You associate with people who know what is hip. Your tinker with your art objects until you get a positive response from a gallery owner. Sometimes these efforts at salable commodities work for a while, but if you are only taking your cues from the art marketplace and magazines, newer fashions will soon replace your once-fashionable objects. Many people spend a lot of time trying to maintain hipness and art-critical relevancy. This game can produce much hollow art.
