To the Right-That is the way to go

This is a new watercolor art piece I painted recently. It is a compilation of a lot of lines that look like  the letter L. It is also a symbol of righteousness. I created this painting with this in mind.

In life there is always a choice or a path to follow. Depending on your views in life there is a right way and a wrong way for each of us. I believe myself to be a person of integrity. I follow a straight path and I do my best to do the right thing in all my affairs. Integrity and character are very important values to me and I prefer to live a life that reflects that.

Sometimes you have to make a decision about something in your life and as difficult as that is, I choose to move toward the right. That is what this artwork means to me.

Character – Who’s watching you?

Art Prints

John Wooden has a quote that I have subscribed to for most of my life. Part of it goes like this.

Character is what you do when no one is looking.” John Wooden.

I was thinking about this when I created this watercolor. However, I decided to go in the opposite direction of this concept.

I would like to pose this question.

What do you do or how do you act when everyone is watching you?

Given the rise in social media and the influx of selfies all over the web. With surveillance cameras on so many street corners and all around it is something to think about.

What do you show about your character when all eyes are on you? Do you reveal the person you truly are or a person you want others to believe you to be?

The Web we Weave inside our Head

Sell Art Online

We as human beings can sometimes get ourselves in a real pickle wouldn’t you agree?

There are times in life when you think you are on the right path and you are looking straight ahead towards that goal or that endeavor. Whatever it is and all of a sudden something gets thrown at you and knocks you down.

Your mind is spinning and you are a hot mess. I did this ink drawing during a somewhat stressful time in my life recently. It looks like what my brain felt like with swirls here and there and so many thoughts fighting to stay on the frontline of my attention span.

But in drawing these shapes and lines over and over again in a somewhat robotic or trance-like state, it calmed me down.

Have you ever had so many things going on in your head and you were frustrated, overwhelmed and felt chaotic inside but things seemed to calm as you wrote out your thoughts? Maybe all you needed was to vent to someone until all that stress just left your body like a hot air balloon deflating?

That is what this drawing did for me and looking back on it makes me realize that things can be clear in your mind once you release what is stressing you out.

But oh my what a web we weave inside our head.

Do you have a time when you felt this way? What helped you release it or vent out what was bothering you?
