Bob Marley

DSC_0790

For some apparent reason, I had the feeling to create a black/white/gray/brown color scheme.

It has been over two years since i have colored in black and white.

We need colors just as much as we need black and white.

Black and white connect to colors.

When you take the “color” out of the original color.

You end up with black and white colors with different shades.

This drawing has been completed for the past 4+ months.

I have been quite behind on posts lately compared to normal. Whenever i am feeling the extra energy to create a blog post that is usually when i create a blog post.

Always say I will attempt to post more and i never do. Always attempting my best.

I am always writing and creating art behind the scenes.

Remember your mental health is more important than some fancy/shiny material possessions. Do not substitute your own soul for a piece of gold. Money is not life. Life is money. I am rich in life.

Material is just material.

Life is most definitely life.

Live the life you love.

Did you ask to be “here.”

Did you know you were going to be here “before” you were even going to be here?

Did you suddenly just appear and begin to live this life.

You can never “buy” a life back.

Remember life is love.

Material has no value besides what “they” say.

Do not get caught up in the madness of the rat race.

Become your greatest version before this life lives through you and you don’t live through this life.

Reacting to everything and letting nothing be.

Here are a few quotes I would like to share by Bob Marley. I relate to what he says within each quote. I am sure many other individuals will as well.

-“Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny.”

-“Don’t gain the world and lose your soul. Wisdom is better than silver and gold.”

-“Judge not, before you judge yourself. Judge not, if you’re not ready for judgment.”

– Everything is political. I will never be a politician or even think political. Me just deal with life and nature. That is the greatest thing to me.”

-“If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.”

-“You not supposed to feel down over whatever happen to you. I mean, you’re supposed to use whatever happen to you as some type of upper, not a downer.”

-“The devil ain’t got no power over me. The devil come, and me shake hands with the devil. Devil have his part to play. Devil’s a good friend, too… because when you don’t know him, that’s the time he can mosh you down.”

-“You say you love rain, but you use an umbrella to walk under it. You say you love sun, but you seek shelter when it is shining. You say you love wind, but when it comes you close your windows. So that’s why I’m scared when you say you love me.”

-“Some people say great God come from the sky take away everything and make everybody feel high, but if you know what life is worth, you will look for yours on earth.”

-The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.”

“Money is numbers and numbers never end. If it takes money to be happy, your search for happiness will never end.”

There are many more quotes I could post that I can relate to.

I wish to share many facts about bob but that is up to you to figure out.

  2. Love the portrait of Bob Marley. I saw him perform. He was astounding. The entire audience moved together standing up the entire performance in an auditorium setting. “You got to lively up yourself.” Peace.

  3. Personally can’t get enough of the guy especially when I’d been choosing his songs in the family before he died and my sisters complain “Mom, when it’s Tim’s time why does he always chose Bob Marley?”. Great time we his wife, children and grandchildren Skanking and Stepping Up. Bravo to your work of Art.
