SIZE:  9″x 12″ paint pen on Fredrix Pro Series Archival Canvas Board.

When I was young I felt that I was bright light in a dark world, I could see that out in this world not every glow of light was the same, some were bright, some dim. I could see some lights sucking the energy from the weaker lights. Some extinguishing lights all together as their own goes out in gasp of pain.

I have always tried to share and give my light, often leaving me drained. Most of this time through out my life I have felt lost at sea or confused in this Universe of lights.

In this time I have always felt like I was ready for anything, yet the universe seems indifferent to your triumphs, hardships, and pain, it just stares ominously.

I feel that I see an even brighter light, like a ship in a storm at sea, getting closer. In my heart I feel it does not see me, or it does not realize who we are. It just stares at me as it pulls away. Why did it leave me here? As I look out in the darkness, I search for light, I want to nurture it, help it grow. I want a world full light, so next the ship comes it will see us all.
