Art from the heart

If you have a chance to put color in a friends life, would you? I'd do it In a heartbeat and already have. I gave this art piece to my friend with muscular dystrophy for free. Due to his muscular dystrophy disease he is unable to move any parts of his body. Our friendship began February of 2014 when I became his caregiver for a few years. I'm only four years older then him. We spent a lot of time watching movies, sports, going on small vacations, talking about anything and everything. Although I have a full time job elsewhere now, I still visit him whenever possible and we continue to be boys.

Giving away art for free

I rarely give away my art pieces ever since someone erased my name and wrote their own name on it without remorse. This one is probably the most colorful piece I've ever created. It took over one year to finish due to a family crisis. I usually just do art pieces using charcoal, white, and touches of sound red. I used oil pastel and some acrylic paint for this 3ft by 3ft fan art piece.

Through out life I was told that I should be paid for my art work. I have been paid before but never felt a sense of accomplishment until I gave this fan art piece to my disabled friend, This accomplishment left me with the belief that artistic talent should be used to help those friends or family who can't physically do it on there own, at least once in a artist's life.

Gift of giving a gift

Art is a gift. Choosing how to use your talents is a choice. I feel more at peace knowing I gave 100% of my art skills to a friend in need of a helping hand. When I saw my friend's smile and eyes light up with happiness after giving it to him, I realized that money for art is nothing compared to a real smile. Money always comes and goes, this friendship will last a lifetime.

Thanks for your time. I hope you learned something new from my article! Take care.
