Exploring the place of my mother’s coming-of-age story. She couldn’t find support in the structures around her, so she ran away from school in Iowa to become a street artist in #JacksonSquare#NewOrleans . She spent most of her twenties whipping out portraits under an umbrella across from the entrance to the church. And then built a life with those skills that allowed us to have food, shelter, and adventures. What a hustler!
Trabalho concluído! Influência clara do meu amigo Ronah Carraro, achei que tinha tudo a ver com a proposta. Cores fortes e no meio um quadro negro pra passar informações aos diabéticos da ADJ. obrigado demais ao pessoal do Citi e da ADJ pela oportunidade!
Vejam as fotos!
Look at yourself as a color. You may not be everybody's favorite color but believe me, one day you will meet someone who needs you to complete his picture.

My latest finished commission! I was actually done with it since Saturday but since I promised I would be doing some more traditional art during my week at the beach 🏖 I figured I’d upload this piece once I was back!
I’m happy to be coming home, but I’m also so sad to be leaving the hotel, I always have so much fun in there 😢 do you ever feel like that about holidays? Like you’re happy to go back to your routine but also sad to go back to your routine at the same time 😂?

Portrait of ANDY SACZYNSKI
Oil on Panel
I’ve known Andy as a fellow artist, friend, and surf buddy for the past couple years. Andy is considered one of the most well-known artists in South Walton. I guess it makes sense he received the 2013 South Walton Artist of the Year and Best Local Artist three years in a row. Not only is Andy highly acclaimed in the local arts, but he is great person. I can’t imagine the faith it took for him and his wife, Lori, to jump from a stable job to pursuing a fine art career with their 5th child on the way. His faith, his commitment to family, and his craft inspires me. Though his art is obviously important, one must appreciate his passion for surfing and his connection to the ocean to fully understand him. This permeates his work and life - being in the moment and letting each wave take him where he needs to go. I must add that Andy is probably the best surfer I know. Andy, the great artist and the inspiring person. I believe he deserves such recognition. To learn more about Andy and his work, visit artbyandyski.com
