About the author
About me… Father, kind spirit, creative soul and humble servant of the down-trodden… I'm a thousand years old. Heard that one, right? We can't stop time. It goes on and on… Yes, in this lifetime, I've been very broken. So, for me, a thousand years doesn't seem that old. There are moments I'll sit back and think of how blessed I am, to still walk among us. I go deep into that thousand yard stare, in my book, ADDICTION. I'm always writing. I have no choice. I'm a messenger among us, I've discovered. The complexity of that is clear in the many gifts my Great Spirit has bestowed me. Then, to paint. Passion fills me with a hunger to create, write, paint and so many other possibilities. As an artist, my spirit welcomes the mist of all colors. I sleep inside endless time and effortlessly imagine paintings I've yet to create. Doors open before me and lead me quietly inward. I'm effervescent to the touch of possibilities. As I stand before blank canvas, the energy of a piece envelops, surrounds and takes me over. It's hypnotic. I literally become the canvas on a sub-conscious level. As I walk inside, I'm no longer a part of the physical world around me. As I lose time, space and the current grasp of my known reality…the one real and absolute truth of my actual self becomes who I know more clearly than anyone. There is no better sense of self than when my physical being is lost unto itself. My spiritual energy becomes free to express the purpose of my keen stroll through endless color. It's in this moment that my true journey begins. Everything somehow, strategically and beautifully finds its place. Exact and precise colors provocatively making sense with their placement, around the movement of lines and textures. All of this happens within the natural flow of the piece, unfolding in colorful detail. The canvas eventually finds a voice that speaks as a whole within the finished canvas, communicating the message found within the painting. Each layer profoundly defined with each piece different, for each eye. I would expect no less. I have a PHD. in artistic possibilities. My master's degree, I learned in fascinating universal intrigue. I've studied under Pablo Picasso, Gustav Klimt, Leonardo Da Vinci, Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollack, Kahlil Gibran and every other master artist or creative wonder my third eye has opened to. My education is un-ending and forever. I remain teachable and continue my studies, even now. I watch you, watch me, watch you. We learn together. The one thing I've learned in life as I get older, which I'm really grateful for… I'm starting to realize no matter our individual abundance of knowledge, no matter the many colorful miles behind us, or, monumental dreams laid out before us, in truth, we really know very little. There's so much attainable intelligence to seek and absorb. I believe, it's far beyond, the far-reaching comprehension of a human. But, we still give it the essence of our best. There's so much wisdom just waiting to be shared. I've found self-reflection to be the father of all knowing. Stormy Lee Monday
