Although clouded by the untimely passing of Whitney Houston, Adele SWEPT the 2012 Grammy's! Adele was awarded 6 golden gramophone statues including song of the year and record of the year! She has been one of my favorite voices in the last few years since I first heard her! It's hard to describe how much music inspires me....sometimes I just hear something and it fills me up. Luckily for me, I can show my appreciation and homage outwardly with paint and a brush! I wish Adele all the best as she is well on her way to becoming one of the most winning (and talented) British Female Artists! Go her!! This piece was commissioned last March. It is a 36" x 36" original acrylic paint on canvas. Currently residing in Boston! I always feel such a connection with each one of my paintings...I always like to know where they end up, and hopefully in warm and loving homes!! (Shout out...you know who you are!!)

Bob Marley would have been 67 years old today! His music was highly influential, not only in the world of reggae which he largely defined, but also introducing the Rastafarian movement to a worldwide audience. Many of his songs featured the struggles of the powerless and the poor, as well as preaching Rastafarian themes such as brotherhood and peace for all mankind. I was only 5 when he died, but I have been listening and grooving to his music and his message since! One of my favorite Marley quotes is "Live the life you love. Love the life you live." This painting featured above is a 48" x 48" canvas that I kept in my private collection until very recently...it now is in a wonderful collection in Texas!! One Love, One Heart, Let's get together and feel alright!
