"Every generation welcomes the pirates from the last." Lawrence Lessig, Free Culture: The Nature and Future of Creativity

It’s fun to play “pirates”, dressing up and fighting with plastic swords. Pirates are the ultimate rebels, the misfits of the sea…! If you seek adventure beyond your comfort zone, you’re somewhat a pirate.

Pirates are treasure-seekers by nature. Each of us has treasure buried deep inside our souls. This treasure can be jewels of knowledge, creativity, or an undiscovered passion.

This painting emerged as a cave of buried treasure. My intention was to invoke the pirate in each of us to search for the hidden treasure of your soul.

I challenge you to awaken your inner pirate to hunt for your soul’s buried treasure.

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come ALIVE. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who are ALIVE." - Howard Thurman

Passion is what creates greatness. Everyone has the potential for greatness but not everyone has the will or strength to be great. Being truly alive ignites passion. You must become a product of your destiny--build it from the ground up and then set it on fire with passion and perseverance.

This painting is called Ignition because the fiery red colors shoot through the center, igniting zeal into the bleakness of the mundane grays in the background such as life's routine.

Search for your ignition to light a fire into your soul and give your passion greatness!
