Truth moves me. A warmth arouses my senses...

The endless waves of abrasive self-loathing have left me washed out in a sea of pious hope. Raked, scraped, rasped - raw. Metaphors of mildness tease me with gentle waves and clear hues. Ice azure burns my abraded life. Frigid. I am lost. The measure of who I am, leveled by what I have done. Been done. I give in - adrift. Take me. I know You. Expanding crevices making rifts for shards of clarity to shine in me. Like piercing knives of lucidity, growing to shifting glaciers in the deep canyons of my heart. Truth moves me. You move me. A warmth arouses my senses, it moves like lava within me. I feel you. Valleys rise to meet it and all I am gives over to it. Can you want all of me? Exposed through verglas every etching of my being. None is hidden, desire is pinned to my hope. You want me. All of me. Fire has ravished my heart.

Written by Kim Brown for this Painting

This painting started its life as a reject. Just like me. It was ugly, dull and turned with its face to the wall. In everything that happened to me, in all the things I have experienced in my life (read about my story), God has always been there. No, I did not always know or recognized, or appreciate Him. But he saved me many times from sure death.

I always listen to podcasts and music whilst painting. A song by the group Iron Bell, just pulled at my heart.
He was jealous of my love. It did not matter what I did, what I tried, and why I tried it...He patiently waited on me to turn to Him.
Is Jealousy a sign?

Jealousy is a sign of love. A sign of wanting attention from the one you love and desire. Jealousy comes from a place of scarcity, it also can come from a place of wanting more for yourself. It comes from a place of total and absolute commitment and wanting that commitment reciprocated.
Loves tastes like color

Reciprocated love is like the perfect taste and blend of color and texture. Together they make a harmonious whole. Love perfectly and unselfishly given, creates wholeness in me.

Unique love

There is only one of me. There is only one of more. My life, my thoughts my talents, my heart, are unique. There is no carbon copy, no other fingerprint-like mine. That makes me (and you) unique.

How I Create

The brightness of oils is mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax), and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings, as if made from air.
