I had a current body of work that I had begun working on but did not have a place for. This was the event I had been waiting for. The time needed to complete these pieces was available to me and I knew this portfolio would be the best fit for this event. I began working on these figures and near the end of their production I was not fully sold on the final look. I knew there was more that would come. I decided to wash over these figures with the vibrancy of the color spectrum. This was it! This body of work has been the most fulfilling to create and has given the most inspiration to the masses. I was excited to share these with the RAW community!
The day of the show arrived and I was excited to release this new portfolio in our city. San Diego didn't know what they had coming! The people I got to meet were amazing and being able to share the message behind the art was the most fulfilling. People came a watched me paint live throughout the night, they asked questions, they shared their stories, they encouraged me in my journey, and I was able to give life and love to my community.
People throughout the night came back and listened to me tell my inspiration and my message over and over. It was the best night I could have hoped for. Time will be the indicator of the lives touched by this one night and I look forward to hearing the stories unfold. I plan to take this portfolio to the masses! This night gave me such a peace about the reason behind what I do. I paint to inspire the world around me, to give light in their present darkness. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this event and I look forward to doing more very soon! Watch out Las Vegas....I'm coming for you!!!!!
