2015 finis part II

yes, a fresh new year and we are like
newborns, innocent to whatever may come.
reflecting on 2015, 
i decided i wasn't quite as awful as i often felt i was.
sure, i was always behind,
but i did finish what i set out to do...mostly.
here is my final painting of the year past.
acrylics on canvas 30 x 40 inches 
a still life.

i believe each painting is a self portrait of the artist.
in mine there is a ruggedness.
 there are secrets
that will only be exposed by scrutinizing. 
there are scars 
and shadows
that say:
i am real!
and you may never know what is under the black paint.
but it is part of the art now.
part of the mystery. 

they say:
the only time is now!
live without regret!
for me, that feels false.
i have a past.
i have regrets.
it is my mission to make them both worthwhile.
to make everything beautiful.
