My intentions with this community (African-American Artists) is for African-American artists to share more about their background, their biographies, how they go about creating their artwork, what inspires them to create art, etc. Please do NOT use this particular community to post your artwork. Use either the Emerging Artist Community or the African-American Art Showcase Community to post images of your artwork. You can however provide a link to your website if you post a biography or any of the information noted above for people to follow up with or learn more about you.

"From A Sketch"
Written by Salkis Re(c)

From a sketch starts the magic that pops out the sky and comes down into my mind.
And with each stroke comes even more ideas to create what I feel inside.

Clementine joins the family
of my other sweet little girls.
And I love to tell their stories, as I wish for my life that they were true.

The smiles and the joy
that you see in my girls
is a joy for me to create,
It helps me when I can't find a cause to paint a smile on my own face.

"Truth is Made Up" Written by Salkis Re

The worst thing to do is hold on to "truths" that haven't ever or no longer serve you. Listen to your big sis on this here; "truth" is relative to conditions. It's subjective and time sensitive. How? Because right now, there are things you swore by that through circumstance, you can no longer adhere too.
Because you are now:10 years older, in a different city, have children, a husband, battling get sickness, more or less money, you are now a different person, with new priorities and urgencies. And you either have adapted by incident or changed your tune through proactive intellect.
Let go of what no longer serves you...
