Most of my adult life I have been considered to be a negative person. If you look at a lot of my earlier posts you may find it easy to go along with this point of view; even I have believed it. However, if you take time to read enough of the short stories I have posted on my Patreon page, you will find a surprising reality. Many of my stories have up beat endings.
Some spoilers ahead, “Dragon Dreams”, while full of battle and strife, is essentially a dream come true for Jason Conners. He becomes a creature that can turn his creativity into a reality through dreams. What writer/artist would not love that. The story “Cast the First Stone” deals with the end of Nazi Germany in a very brutal and graphic way with the death of Hitler, yet it holds out hope for us all with the potential for redemption.
My artwork almost always focuses of the beauty of life. “Quiet Strength – Silent Vulnerability” deals with the potential man has to destroy the majestic tiger. However, the image is very beautiful and vibrant and the symbolism used expresses my love for space, the stars, the planets, and big cats. “Rodeo” deals with suicide and Hell, but the story that accompanies this painting ultimately is about hope and salvation. So while even I sometimes believe that I am a negative person, my stories and artwork paint a different picture.
