” Live your passion. What does that mean, anyway? It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the things that interests you the most in the world. You don’t live for vacations because you don’t need a break from what you’re doing-working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same, you don’t even pay attention to how many hours you’re working because to you, it’s not really work, you’re making money, but you’d do whatever it is you’re doing for free.”- Gary Vaynerchuk
Remember : Passion will drive and motivate you to great things in life.
The more passionate and motivated you are, the faster you’ll drive the life you want.
Get motivated to find your own passion and work toward greater personal success.
Happy Friday everyone!!

” Evey successful people behind the story starting with a poor story. We all have the deeper story that most people cannot see, No matter who we are or where we come from , we all have our one journey.
Believing in yourself is the first secret to success remember that whatever you tell yourself everyday will either lift you up or tear you down.
Can change your whole life for the better with this most powerful law of the universe, If you use time wisely, from that point on the universe is going to get out of your way and everything else will fall into place to make it happen for you, your decisions will be guided by your mindset.”-

Tonight 7:30 to 10, we open our show, 25 Years Later: Race, Riots and Reform at Gallery 38, on the causes and responses to the uprising in ’92. Here’s my piece, and here’s the story:
I originally created this piece in 2012, when poor beleaguered Rodney King, the Everyman who never wanted notoriety or fame, just a little reckless fun with his buddies and a whole lot of quiet, finally, arguably, found peace at the bottom of his swimming pool.
I’ve reworked this piece for this exhibition looking at causes, ramifications, and lingering debts and doubts from the events surrounding that sour-tasting Simi Valley courthouse where it was decided Rodney was too dangerous to be treated like a human being.
We lived with Rodney for the intervening twenty years, those of us who never actually knew him – from the day the Zapruder film of his torture by nightstick made its grainy way onto the public stage, until the morning – a Father’s Day – that the news of his death reminded us that he was, or had been, still, uneasily around.
He had the face of an Everyman: It’s easy to picture him as the UPS guy in shorts and shirtsleeves, the security guard nodding a silent greeting outside the 7-11, or the sports fan sharing grief or joy at Staples or the stadium.
That Everyman quality only underscored the lawless brutality of Koon’s’ and Powell’s and Wind’s 56 baton blows. And every black and brown male, and everyone who could claim a black or brown male as a loved one, understood the message – a message underscored in the most face-slapping way by their Simi Valley jury.
A lot of ugly and a lot of pain and a lot, but not enough, of listening has come and gone since those days. But Rodney’s quote carries wise weight: We should all be fools who believe in Peace.
I thought the promise was “Make America Great Again.” Sure, anyone standing by themselves, alone in a room is technically the greatest person in the room. When you choose someone to set the bar for the team, make sure you know what their standards are first.
“Sometimes the fastest route to your destination is not the shortest route.” From ‘Life Lessons from My Car’s GPS, Volume 1 by Peter Meister’. Volume two is a compendium of paradoxical aphorisms like “In 2/10s of a mile, [like anyone knows what that is] stay right, then turn left.”
” Today is very special day , international mother day, god gifted us her different role to be a most important part of our life, mother, sister, beloved wife, I wish all women’s who are very important in someone life and in all over the world and Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mother’s.!!

” Always fight for what you love, no matter how hard life gets.
Your passion will ignite the true purpose. Focus on whatever it is you love and you’ll reach true happiness, we all are here with different paths that lead to the same ending, so stick to your own path and live. Many will come into your path, or try to change your path . Allow that to happen, since you can probably find your purpose on a completely different path. Allow different opportunities into you’re life but keep moving forward and become better than the day before.
Happy Friday everyone!!
” We don’t all have equal opportunity but we all have the opportunity to be better than we were yesterday.”-
Wishing you have a Great Monday & successful day,,,,,!⛅

Pleased as punch to announce that I’m in two shows opening this weekend in LA and another two that already opened and will remain up for another week or two.
Tomorrow, Sat 29 April, at West Adams’ coolisimo 25 Years Later: Race, Riots and Reform at Gallery 38, I join a coterie of excellent artists commenting on the days leading up to, and the coin-toss years since, the uprising of ’92, and the harrowing Daryl Gates Riots.
Then Sunday 30 April, one of my painted portraits from back home in Mexico is featured in “Luxe”, a pretty gorgeous exhibition reopening ChimMaya Art GalleryMaya Art Gallery, in East LA.
Still and all, my portrait icon of my friend Patricia Gay, commemorating her and many other unheralded women’s participation in the Black Panther Party’s revolutionary Breakfast Program continues at Chinatown’s Gregorio Escalante Gallery.
And finally, my home away from home Avenue 50 Studio, as part of a trio of heavy-duty shows, features two of my drawings from Bahia, Brazil, in the aptly titled exhibition “Spiritual Medicine.”
Hope you can make it out to one or the others of these fine galleries this weekend….
Imagine my joy and exuberance when I made the dreaded step on the electronic scale this morning and was greeted with the message “LO”. My emotions cried out “You’re Low!”. It took a few seconds for my rational brain to catch up and say: “Yeah, low on batteries, fat ass.”
