Libertad pa’ las Muñecas
Today is my birthday!!!

For the past last week I’ve been thinking about the fragility of life and the courage it takes to live the life you want and deserve.  I’ve also been working on several pieces for a series of mixed media paintings for a series called: “Libertad pa’ las Muñecas”.   They are both related in the sense it takes a strong belief in yourself, your works and your message to give you the courage to put it out there.

My birthday wish is for you is to be courageous.
Create something ~   Tell someone what they mean to you
Take a risk  ~  Vive la vida!

There’s a song by the Puerto Rican band, el Gran Combo, which really exudes my sentiments called ‘Que me lo den en Vida’.

If you have something to say or share with me, give it to me in life.

“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.” Rainer Maria Rilke

“I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.” J.G. Ballard
