"Chasing away the shadows
only to be faced by them.
Staring the black in the face
only to watch light from above,
To turn the attacking shadows
into soft swirls of blues,
cascades of green,
and the security blanket of white.
Washed over by the biggest
pool of water only to be cleansed
by its magnificence.
Maggie: magnificent's sister
Who could ever learn to love a color one has never loved?
A person with a wild imagination. A creative who gets lost in the process.
Viewed as odd or different from the rest: this color unliked is just like the lucky person with the wild imagination.
The crazy person who can't sleep when her imagination runs wild with colors new and old.
The old colors used to be loved by this girl until she slowly started only seeing certain hues.
She lost her sense of touch. Her sense of grace was muddled in graceful chaos.
This color is a blend of many and some call her Maggie, others mistake her for her brother "Magnificent".
Maggie learned to push through the tough, rough and daunting only to find she enjoyed her blending...for her blending holds her history, genealogy, and layers no one else will ever carry.
She peers down at herself to only see one color and that color is named Maggie the brave.
Poem written on a flight from LAX to HNL for Harris Family based on their painting done in the months of March to June 2017. It is the sister piece to a Maralto style named Magnificent.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to paint for you and be such a great clientele to work with. Thank you for being patient with me as I navigate the artist waters of an expanding want for my art. I will always cherish your two pieces as monumental artworks done early in my resin career. I learned so much durning the painting of both of them. I discovered a lot of who I want to be as a business woman, artist/friend and family woman' balancing my time of painting big and also giving myself time to breathe through the more difficult parts of the creative process.
This page is just for you guys to share with whoever you want. The photos in the link below are photos and videos I compiled from my time painting and completion process.
