Good day to everyone! the amazing thing is that we survived and can now paint the beauty we each see on this Earth! yea, sometimes things seem weird in our lives...but one good thing is we take everything in at a slower-calmer speed! Please see my paintings on my page- phil espinoza.

I AM USING AN ANDROID TO TYPE HIS-SO, PLESSE EXCUSE ERRORS! I AM NEW TO THIS GROUP AND I CAN SEE ITS GONNA BE GREAT BEING HERE. I WAS A MUSICIA FOR BOUT 10 YEARS BEFORE AN ATV ACCIDENT THAT PUT ME IN A 3 MONTH COMA IN SEP 2008. I ALSO HAD BOUT 2 STROKES WHILE IN COMA. ANYWAY...I LOVE TO PAINT! I LOSSED ALOT OF GUITAR PLAYING, SO I DECIDED TO TRY MY HAND AT PAINTING. I LOVE IT. IT INVOLVES SELF EXPRESSION, LIKE SINGING AND PLAYING GUITAR. AS SOON AS I FIGURE OUT HOW TO UPLOAD PHOTOS WITH MY ANDROID...I WILL UPLOAD SOME PHOTOS OF MY ALIC PAINTINGS. ANYWAY, THE TBI IS DEFINITELY A CHALLENGE. IT DEFINITELY REQUIRES ALOT OF "ACCEPTING AND LETTING GO". IN ORDER TO ADJUST TO OURNEW LIFE. ANYWAY, I PAINT ALOT OF BUTTERFLIESAND FLOWERS. THE BUTTERFLY IS AN AMAZING INSECT! I MEAN, FROM A CATTAPILLSR WITH MANY LEGS.....IT TRANSFORMS INTO A FLYING BUTTERFLY! I MEAN, THATS AN ADJUSTMENT! AMAZING, AND IT CONTINUES TO SURVIVE AND ADJUST INSIDE ITS NEW BODY AND MIND! AND I KNOW WE WILL TOO! ANYWAY EVERYONE...MY NAME IS PHIL....GOOD TO BE HERE!

I have been a welder my entire adult life, in fact I received my TBI in a motor vehicle accident on my way to work. Winter Weather in Wisconsin. I am still able to weld post TBI and even learned how to weld aluminum. My art is constructing interesting objects from steel.

Sad reality for too many and unfortunately for even more who can't express it.  It's good you use art as a therapeutic tool though. I became able to write music as a therapy, something I'd never done.  I am fortunate to be performing with a great world recording artist Sarah Pray at the BIAW annual convention in Wisconsin May 9.  Hear her song 'Communicate', 'Carroll Street', and 'Empty Words" on her band site.  We'll do my 'Fraud Justifies?' and others.

Hi everyone, this is one of my early paintings. I began painting as a therapeutic tool on the advice of my counselor, and my work captures my journey in paint, what it is like to live through a Traumatic Brain Injury. Many of you will know it well, and my heart goes out to each and everyone of you!

Morning all. It's the second full day of spring, raining cats & dogs in MN, which made me think about this photograph I shot and printed last month. Hoarfrost on a willow tree.

hi I been able to create my own comic book even though I did not draw or write a word in the first issue.. My picture here is taken from my business card header which I had a woman create for me when I had run out of older style business cards several years ago while attending some seminar...
Its a story about how each one of use has hidden talents in us which have to be drawn out of us through being tested..

If any one wants to see the first 4 or five pages of it click on it here.

 I would like to ask any one who can draw to get back to me with their comments on this.

 

Good or bad .. it will help me CANI my next issue.

 

LOVE

FF
