I wrote a poem in the middle of this canvas but didn’t like the way it was all coming together. There was something there, but I felt it was more behind the words than the words themselves. So I painted over the ideas of them, to leave just enough to push up beneath.

Most treasures in the world, are usually found beneath the surface (whether water, or land, or someone’s own beating heart).

If all the depth, all the magic, all the brilliance inside of a person often lives just beneath the surface….keep searching.

it’s there.

i promise.




“just beneath the surface.”
