Acrylic on Canvas
90 x 122cm
My first personal painting of 2019! Its been an incredible journey from Mexico to Guatemala over the last couple months, I'm so thankful for always feeling inspired and want to say a massive thankyou to my global family for keeping me full of life and love, as it is the sacred mirror reflection from others that helps keep this fire alive inside us all 🔥⚡
This painting demonstrates the beauty of this fire, in every single one of us is an inner child, a person full of energy and non judgemental love and curiosity, a pure being of light and raw empathy.
Life is difficult... along the pathway there are many puzzles and problems, many hardships that we as humans have the privilege of solving.... falling in and out of love, dealing with traumas, working struggling to put food on the table. These many experiences harden our shell and create a ego of protection around a once empathic angel.
It is so important to let our love out and not always expect it to come back in such a way, to love unconditionally, to breathe through the hard times and adjust.... we are the most adaptive beings on the planet.
I believe this I most easily achieved by keeping that child inside us all alive, to not bury problems beneath layers of shadows that cast us into bad behaviour patterns but fully embrace the awe of every day life, keeping the wonder in your eyes by forgiving and letting go.
The child inside will always guide you on your voyage of constant discovery, thank you everyone for keeping my heart walm and my mind young, I love you all 💛🧡❤️
'The Empath' Original Canvas
Every original canvas has been hand painted with immense gratitude and love by Joey Baker.
The paintings range from weeks to months of work depending on their detail, every single piece has travelled the world extensively sometimes to multiple continents before being finished. From Jungles to deserts, Volcanoes to Tropical Islands, from Palaces to Temples to street corners and everywhere in between. They are my personal account of the world I experience.
Each canvas is painted with high quality acrylic paint onto Berlin based Gesso Canvas. The paintings once finished have then been double varnished in Golden © Semi-Gloss Varnish for the best results for both vibrancy and protection, they have then been individually bespoke framed.
Every Original Canvas also comes with:
Signed COA (Certificate of Authenticity)
Original A4 Drawing
Hand Embellished Canvas Print (of your choice & size)
