Original Paintings and Drawings


An original semi-abstract painting in acrylic and mixed media of a leopard pouncing.

Story: There are those who don't understand me. They tell me I am now old enough that I should accept the way things are. They say this out of kindness, for it is their firm belief that such an attitude would put me on the path towards contentment. But I was not born with that kind of heart. I am compelled to strive for a better life. I don't accept that there are problems that cannot be solved. I don't believe that stones should be left unturned. I know I can be stubborn and difficult and defiant, but my worst traits are also my best. Look at me with kind eyes and you will perceive persistence and independence and courage. So now I see something glitttering before me in the bright light of morning, and I pounce on the chance for a future better than my past. I do this in full knowledge that things might not work out. Inner peace is mine only when I'm trying. I'd rather fail than give up.
