About The Painting:

This is my signature icon, inspired by my April 2009 assault and battery. The slogan came shortly after and that was the birth of Acrylic Alchemy. 

The artist journal and the messages from it were started around 2011 when I was on the precipice of homelessness. I didn't have the resources the paint, so painting the words in the journal satiated that desire just enough until I could get back on my feet again. I realized there are lots of other people struggling out there and perhaps they could use some hope and encouragement from someone that has been in their shoes. We all need a little boost sometimes and our vulnerabilities have the power to make us stronger both individually and collectively. These pieces are just a small sample from my hundreds of journal entries.

Art with meaning

When I first decided on the piece I wanted I contacted Micheal directly through messenger. He responded quickly, answered all my questions, provided me with resources and information that best fit my needs and wants and is a very humbled person!! I don’t buy art unless it’s an original and made by the person selling it. I have had many life changing experiences, I’ve been to the bottom and crawled my way back up only to fall again and again. Micheals art and story is relatable to me and I will always support a relatable, raw, honest person!

I really enjoyed working with you and I'm happy we found something perfect just for you :)

It came to Canada free and very quickly. I absolutely LOVE this slogan and it is proudly displayed in my bedroom so as I wake up everyday I am inspired! I'll be buying more of your work! Total now-3.

I bought the black on white as well a the white on black. I love the saying which goes along perfectly with Michael's signature. I bought both of these canvases so I can have one at home and one at work to always remind not to be afraid of being me!! Because the real me is definitely different

Carini Arts

I LOVE THAT!!! I also love that you got both for contrast. Thank you so much :)
