The Painter, the Painting and the Art of Looking Deeper



Once upon a time

a woman bought one of my little paintings.

When I came inside to meet her

she was surprised.

She said I did not look like what she expected.

Apparently, she did not look deep enough.

I look exactly like my paintings.

The painter and the painting are one and the same..

such is the power of art.

Art can reach beneath the surface

and reveal the truth and beauty that exists in all of us.

The body I walk around in has nothing to do with it.



  1. Because you’re expressing yourself through art, and, there are many sides of you, that not everybody sees all the time, so that, is why the woman who bought your painting remarked how you don’t look like someone who did the drawings, it happens, because they (your audiences) are NOT looking deeper enough, and not realizing, that what you’re putting out, is just PARTIAL of who you are, that it’s not you, as a whole!
