Soul Window to Me &
Naples Art Support
In The Midst of turning 20...
The traveling thru the Sacred Deep State of Mind, was becoming More Vivid... More Lucid.. More Gardner Like.
The Doodles, Black and White.. Understanding Creative Imaginative Figures.. Scribbling.. Chasing the Lines... Understanding the Flow of Ink of a Pen. The doodles, with only adding color time to time. I was so afraid of Color. But now i have Hundreds of Character and Accessory Concepts of 10 years of doodling. A time when I doubted Myself as An Artist.. While People that would see my Doodles, always told me.. How incredible they are and how I need to put them somewhere and sell them.. While I never thought they were good enough.. Because I new I still had room for Perfecting and Understanding My Style... and NEXT STOP, TICKETS PLEASE!
In the Reality of Our Matrix, there have been many things to Influence Visions. From the Fun Younger Days of Partying.. to Growing Up to be an Entrepreneur and Being a Father. All the Life experiences that I wanted or Didn't want,, I took it as good as I can. AS I dug holes for fences for 10 yrs, almost everyday.. All I could do was think.. think.. imagine.. imagine some more.. As I Mindlessly dug.. dug.. & dug.. more and more holes. To Coming home and always having a Dream to be more than that.
Then One day My Son Asked me, after watching a Video of me at home.. Playing my guitar.. He says "Daddy, When Are You Going to Be on Stage?"
Shit you not, I had a flip flop of schedule with my son the next day... because he mom needed to switch days around with custody, which ever since.. I have been playing open Mics since Fall of 2018.
All of that lead me to go deeper into my Art, Meet more People in the Art & Music Scene in Naples, Ft. Myers, & Cape Coral. I began Live Painting in the Winter of 2019, after Telling Myself to "GO FOR IT".
All of the Challenges and Change of Line of Work to doing Dock and Seawall Work, which required Me to Gain new Skills and Inspirations from being under water and studying the characteristics of sea life in ways I Never Thought Before.
Hence Has Led to more Insight and Creative Juices, Ever Since Winter 2020.
In the Meditative Realm of My Lucid Gardens, My Dream World of the Inter Journey, & Personally Developed practices of Breathing/ Stretching.. Has opened Me UP to New Understandings that are Beyond Our Physical Matrix.
From Natural to Chemical (whether Artificial or Natural) Influenced Psychedelic Journeys Thru the Sacred Mind, Grasp Understandings and Knowledge.. and Styles I Never Imagined Before.
Using those Two Forms of Deep Subconscious Research, As *Tools* to Reach the depth and Growth of my Mental Gardens.. The Seeds Planted.. The Self-Nurturing.. The Self-Understanding, How Myself in Ways are Connected to Your-Self. I Feel that I have been able to bring life things to Our Matrix, from these Worlds.
The Visions.. The Entities.. The Place of Light.. The Mysterious Place of Darkness, that is a Place of Voices of Information towards Progression.. The Feeling of Leaving My Body, has Opened Up Many Different Aspects of Creations For Me.
Welcome to the Lucid Gardens.. Plant it Here and Watch it Grow,
After All, We Are Just Soul-bots Living on a Space Rock
Before he was born.. it was Hard Enough to do things For Me, but When I knew Little Zen Isaac Rapp was on his Way.. All of that Perspective Changed. From a Piece that I worked on about Human Creation in a Different realm from the Architect of the Matrix, that was Inspired By His Creation and Growth Inside the Womb.
Ever Since then, he Has asked me to make fun things. He Wants to Be An Artist.
I Knew I had to Show that You can Be Happy, You Can Be Creative.. and How Hard You Need to work to Make these Dreams Happen. As he as seen me at my Highest and My lowest.. I always Stride to Make it Right and Fair to Him.
After all, who else was going to be Sitting on my Shoulders as I color in art pieces? Who else would Encourage me to Make the Next Step? Who else asked me When I would Be on Stage?
Zen, The Person Who Asked When, and I Went.
He Went from a little fence helper, to my Art Buddy.
Depths of Meditation
Breathing, Stretching, & Concentration Go A Long Way. You'd Be Surprised What you can open you Mind / Third Eye to See and to Feel.
The Self-Chant, That is Secret to Me.. The Chant that Came to me During a Mediation and Ever Since.. That Chant has calmed me.. and helped me breakthrough to Deeper Realms.
Taking me To Be Guided by the *Owners of the World*.. The True Watchmen of Our Matrix.
Laying the Foundation, Building the Structure, and Adding the Finishing Details.
