Today I got addicted to Instagram. There is a lot of great artists around the world doing some incredible work. Today’s drawing may seem silly. It is I admit to that but the symbols I used mean a lot to me. I would consider this a form of primitive art. I remember going to the museum and thinking primitive art was a joke. The I saw the Yellow Christ by Paul Gauguin and I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. It struck a cord in me. I am no Gauguin. I don’t have his talent or are my pieces anything close to his. What I am trying to say is what so consider a joke can still hit a person dead center in their heart. Art has that power. I am so thankful that so many people continue everyday to bring beauty into people’s lives. I will keep drawing these hearts in hopes that I can shine a little bit of light on love.
