"The Blind Queen" oil on canvas 40"x60"
The blind Queen. The one that sits there unbothered of being. She thinks she has won the battle of self sovereignty. Finding the healing point from all her life pain. She sits there so posed. So royal. So numb. Numb to the feeling of reality. But as the passion of golden dreams arise in her eyes so does the corruption of reality within her soldiers. She has lost focus that even the necklace of truth hangs in front of her but not being seen. The tree of life of dreams tries to hold on to her soul..but reality grows strong within her soldier and is creeping into her unknowing self. So numb. She thinks she is okay. But her soul is slowing drifting away into the arms of the soul thristy demon. Where we have all fallen too. Unaware of reality because we want to live in our own fantasy. The battle begins and we hope that a lighter day is what we see. Darkness falls. Dreams fall. Crown fall. Will you fall?

"Unfinished Dreams" acrylic on canvas 37"x72"
Selling me dreams, telling me things. Things that seem so believable, but in the end you was just being cruel. Fame and love are promised things, things that everyone has dreams about, but never obtained. Because fame is not reality, it comes at a price that is one that will take over my soul, molding me into
Something they want me to be. I loose sight of who I am. Staring in the mirror asking who am I? Is that really me? Dreams are what we follow, but some end up on a path that is hard to follow. I break down, fall to my knees asking God why? Why is it so hard to follow my dreams? Living out what I know I’m meant to be. But everything comes at a price. So I just stay high, livingIn the clouds, looking down and seeing that the industry is just ran by clowns. Monsters that want to take my creativity because they don’t have their own. They enter my soul and call it home. Moving in, taking over, kicking me out. Asking this is what you wanted right? Fame and Love
Well I’m here now to show you what it’s all aboutThey will love you now. The cameras will love you now. But as you stand there listening to these promised things you watch your dreams pass you by. Your dreams asking “how can you sell me for something that is false? I was there for you when no body was. I was your muse, your angel, your inner genius.
And this is how you repay us? Selling us to the monster that only wants to control us. Lock us away, never allowing us to express our true emotions in a way that
Society needs to see. They have become blind to reality. The true reality of living free. Being able to just be. We have been through so many obstacles for a reason and you throw it all away for fame and love. What is fame and love? Fame shouldn’t even be a thought of becoming. Love holds on to your heart, but it’s hard to believe that it’s there waiting. Love can’t be bought. It must be something sought by the heart. Fame is only the fame that is told to be played
To find love in others. But you only need one that can give you everything that you need. Fame with love will only
Bring you down to your knees.
"Electric Thoughts" oil, acrylic, spray paint on canvas 36"x48"
As she dreams she begins to feel the energies that surround her daily. Good?…Bad? Will her dreams give her the answers? She maintains her composer as she allows her electric thoughts to light her mind. Charge the eyes to see more clearly. Charge her heart to feel more deeply. Charge her soul to feel what’s real. Allowing these electric thoughts to flow free because she trusts her inner genius, her third eye, her muse, her angel to guide her to what she believes.
"It's all a dream" acrylic on canvas 36"x48"
Some say I ain’t shit. Some say I’m fake. Some say I’m a hore. But I don’t give a fuck because you don’t know my life and what I’ve been through. At time I sit here asking what’s left. Poppin pills because I don’t want to feel. I don’t want to be here, I want to leave here. Feeling alone because everyone I’ve ever loved has left me laying. Here face down with their foot on my heart. My dad left when I was only three came back and tried to kidnap me ,get the fuck away from me, I don’t know you, you left all three of us, why do you think you can come back and only take me? You’re nothing to me. Haven’t seen you in over 15 years, are you even alive? If you’re not I can’t even shed a tear for someone that was never there. My brother left me when I was only 12, taking his life because drugs and guns became his. Leaving not only me but his two little ones. I remember I got mad because he names his first daughter after me. Now she stands there and watches her daddy pull the trigger. And leave this earth. Whey did he do this? He fell to drugs and guns. He felt alone. So be careful what you say to others because you never know what they are going through. I don’t want to witness another one leaving this earth .Age 19, I almost left the earth myself, but I’m not the one that wanted to harm myself. The one I loved, the one I could see myself spending my life with would be the one to send me to the skies with a goodbye kiss. Feeling the barrel to my head. Him standing over me saying, he wish I was dead. Asking, why I thought you loved me? I don’t want to die. But nobody will ever know this because I keep it bottled up inside. But I still hear those hurtful things. Still feeling the pain. So I stare at these pills. If I pop these will it make everything stand still. Make all these memories fade away. Make all these comments go away. The only ones that seem to hurt me are the ones that said they loved me...What is love? Love is pain, So they say. But why?...Why does it have to be that way..Why do you have to say goodbye. I want to hold on. I want to love you even though all I see is pain in your eyes and through your hands you release it onto me. I’ll just take these pills and tell myself goodbye
Goodbye…now I can do live in the skies
I wake up and it was all a dream…

"Behind closed doors" acrylic on canvas 16"x20"
What happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. Things that I must not talk about because it might make you look bad. I do as you say, I do not want to loose you, but I feel like I'm trapped in hell. I don't even know how to escape because you always tell me it's going to get better so I stay. I stay and wait. But those false promises never come. Please release me, you don't love me...
