The drawing is finally finished.

This drawing took a little longer than intended. Was busy with other parts of life besides the art.

Certain periods throughout the year I create more than other periods.

I enjoyed this color scheme. The colors used in this drawing are different compared to most of the drawings I have completed.

Always attempting to challenge myself more and more each drawing.

Each piece of art that is completed. Helps you challenge yourself.

Helping you become your greatest version. When creating you learn a lot about yourself.

Art helps you grow as a person. Art has helped me see the true value in life.

It is the little things that matter the most. Not the “success” or the “finish line.”

Without all the little steps there would be no “finish line.”

Art is the process of many little fragments of an image put together.

Life is similar to art. Life possesses infinite moments with infinite possibilities. All of these little moments help you become the “you” that we call “you” today.

Patience is key in life. If you believe in yourself, you can manifest anything your crazy mind desires.

Do not let others tell you what your reality is. Projection of the ego is usually nothing but ignorance.

Use nothing but love and tune into the higher frequency of your soul.

You create your own plan or you become a part of someone else’s plan.

Usually, you create your own frequency. The main focus is to stay within your own frequency.

Ignore the “Energy Vampires.”

Some people have nothing better to do than spread negativity.

Listen to your soul and intuition.

If you listen to thyself life will manifest itself into something beautiful.

What your mind is attracted to you should pursue.

If you enjoy who you are. Keep being who you are. Remember to never give up on thyself.

In the darkest times of life. These are the moments where you become your greatest version.

Life might not be butterflies and rainbows in everyone’s eyes.

Do not define yourself with your past.

What matters more than ever is the “now.”

This very moment holds infinite love and possibilities.

What has happened to you throughout your lifetime might possess a huge impact on thyself.

Negative or positive.

What matters the most is how something impacts you.

Not what happens to you. How you react to a situation matters more than ever.

React with negativity or react with positivity.

The future holds unlimited possibilities.

Become stronger than who you were yesterday.

Ignore creating yourself into a victim of this life.

Change the perception in your mind and possibly life will manifest into something beautiful.

All you have to do is believe within thyself and anything is possible.

If you never believe in yourself there will be nothing to believe in.

The way you deal your energy into this world will impact thyself as well as the others around you.

The energy has to transcend to another source.

More positivity will be manifested into this universe or more negativity will be manifested into this universe.

The wisest decision in a moment of “negativity.” Is to turn the negative energy into positive energy. Instead of creating more negativity on top of the negativity you just received.

Life is a battle of the energies.

The Ying and the yang.

Do not let the pain blind you.

Pain is your best friend.

When in pain you learn about life and expand the mind.

Your consciousness grows when you learn how to deal with the emotions of life.

Everything is a balance in the end.

As I leave you to observe the drawing.

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

-“My dad’s a beautiful man, but like a lot of Mexican men, or men in general, a lot of men have a problem with the balance of masculinity and femininity – intuition and compassion and tenderness – and get overboard with the macho thing. It took him a while to become more, I would say, conscious, evolved.”

– “The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.”

-“Most people are prisoners, thinking only about the future or living in the past. They are not in the present, and the present is where everything begins.”

-“I’m laughing because I know the secret of life. And the secret of life is that I have validated my existence. I know that I am worth more than my house, my bank account, or any physical thing.”

-“My job in this life is to give people spiritual ecstasy through music. In my concerts, people cry, laugh, dance. If they climaxed spiritually, I did my job. I did it decently and honestly.”

-“Most people don’t have that willingness to break bad habits. They have a lot of excuses and they talk like victims.”

-“I realized a long time ago that instrumental music speaks a lot more clearly than English, Spanish, Yiddish, Swahili, any other language. Pure melody goes outside time.”

-“One day there will be no borders, no boundaries, no flags and no countries and the only passport will be the heart.”

-“Peace has never come from dropping bombs. Real peace comes from enlightenment and educating people to behave more in a divine manner.”

There are many more quotes I could post that I can relate to. I will stop before I get too carried away.
