I don’t think that we understand our own power. More often than not I’m asking myself if I’m capable of accomplishing the task set before me, or if I’m ready for the next step.
This painting is about pushing the boundaries of what we think we are capable of, and understanding that we already have all the tools we need to reach our goals. If we can just find a way to access those tools, they’re at our disposal.
As seen depicted in this piece, all tools that will free the heart are present. The knife is held by a rope which it can cut through. Once the knife is free, you can access the key which can then open the lock. When you look at this holistically, the very tool that can change everything is held by something in which it can overcome. This is how I view the tools we have within ourselves.

"Don't live and die for dead presidents"
There are so many things id like to say about this piece and how it makes me feel, but ill keep it relatively short. Often times the lack of monetary resources discourages people from pursing their passions. It can make you feel trapped (like our subject in this piece who is confined within the wooden bars) into a cycle of working Monday through Friday, and living for the weekends. This piece also depicts my feeling of living "tight" or "paycheck to paycheck". Im sure most can relate to that feeling, and the yearning to live life fiscally fit. Regardless, we can't allow ourselves to live and die by the almighty dollar. More life…..
P.s. I understand Benji Franklin wasn't a president. I'm referring to money when I use the term "dead presidents".

There is so much I want to say about this piece, but I’ll keep it short and to the point. I think it’s crucial to understand and visualize exactly what you want to be. While I was working on this painting I realized that I am becoming what Ive always envisioned. We get so wrapped up in life that we don’t always take the time to recognize and appreciate how far we’ve come. After the reflection, comes re-evaluation, and then it’s back to work!

"Can I Dream For A Little Bit Longer"
There are so many obstacles and trials in the way of our dreams. For many, big dreams are too hard to handle. The vines and leaves in the background show growth or potential growth of an individual and their dreams. In the way of those dreams is the chaos of everyday life - our families, jobs, finances, hopes, fears, failures, school, etc. On top of that, we have negativity from family, friends, co-workers, peers, employers, etc, (reflected by the arrows). People often think it's impossible to reach their dreams, so they tend to project their fears onto others. For the people who continue to chase their dreams regardless of life's circumstance, keep going.

"The Pursuit of Happiness"
Fresh off a 900 mile move, and attempting to settle back into our "normal" roles. Kids, jobs, storage units, Texas heat in the middle of august. Needless to say, life has been hectic. This piece reflects the crazy flow of a family going through what seems to be endless change. On the other hand, its rooted with bright, fresh colors, and a hint of "growth".

Intersections happen all day, everyday in our lives. You meet someone that you eventually fall in love with, you meet someone who becomes a mentor or a business partner. You go through struggles that lead you to inspiration, and you use that inspiration to create something you normally wouldn't have. This piece is about embracing the doors that open and the ones that close. It's about creating and nurturing new and old relationships. It's about growing during the struggle and remaining humble during the peaks. Keep growing.

The birdhouse has been and will remain to be used in several of my paintings. It symbolizes a traditional "9-5/job" for me. In this piece the birdhouses are stacked in moving boxes and stored in an old run down utility trailer. What do you think this means?
