My most personal work comes from somewhere between my head and my gut. I take a personal experience for example the death of my dad and am currently working on a painting based on his passing on. This carresses, soothes, and memorializes my dad and points to the hope in the future and his descendants, my children, and nephews and what their lives may bring to the world through their work and lives. I will attach a sketch from my Moleskin as a prepatory to the painting. My dad came from Syria and crossed the ocean to arrive in Atlantic City where he lived as my father and was buried there. The Ginko tree has no known natural diseases and is the oldest known tree.
