“Pink Tourmaline” is the birthstone for October, and is part of my Broken Doll Birthstone series. This magical violinist continues to play her violin even with her cracked fingers and body. Her music emanates from her being. Is she all doll? or all human? That is for you to decide. Bright Pink stones and colors stand out against the striking grayscale of the doll.

*Special thanks to my very talented friend Deanna who plays for The Craic & Clockwork Knotwork band for being the model and inspiration of this piece.

C@2014 - OPEN WATER MUSIC ~ 24"x 18" computer aided original mixed media painting

Based on the Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" Chorus, the finally at the end of The Ninth Symphony:

I hand made my Seahorse and my Yellow Tangs in Photoshop and cloned them into the right place in my own original composition; 27 days with of work…

My yellow Tangs are accurately placed along the musical staff to play the Melody of Joy as they head towards the sunken ship labeled "The Ode to Joy"

The sunken piano is one I actually made out of porcelain kiln fired to cone 5 and painted and edited into my mixed media original painting finished in Photoshop

The Ray of Georgia: Unchained my Hands This is another work in my Roses and thorns painting series and was influenced by the movie of Ray Charles’ life. Born poor and raised by his mother in my adopted state of Georgia in the USA. Ray lost his sight when he was a child about four or five years old. Ray Charles grew up at a time when people of his skin colour were considered less human and were denied equal opportunities with the white people. To imply that Ray Charles used his music to echo the cry of African Americans during the civil rights movement, I changed the wording of Ray's songs - “Unchained my heart” for the title of this painting to “The Ray of Georgia: Unchained my Hands.” The movie showed many flashbacks of Ray Charles childhood years. The memory of the drowning of his little brother George and his own battles with drugs addiction was the focus of this painting. On the left side of the painting is Ray Charles playing the piano in a concert hall with stems of thorns wrapped around his upper body. Bounded by the stems of thorns is to depict Ray Charles bondage to drugs addiction and “Unchained my hands” here is his own personal cry and struggles to break free from drugs addiction as shown in a drugs rehabilitation clinic in the movie. In the middle ground is the curtains of the concert hall drew back to show the flashback of his brother’s drowning on the right side of the painting. The end of the piano turns to the laundry tub in which his brother drowned. The Message of the painting is since thorns couldn’t prevent the blooming of the roses, poverty or disabilities cannot be hindrances to anyone success.
