Dear Friends, Drodzy Przyjaciele, Cari Amici,
Please have a look at my website! We have gotten more of my paintings on as a slideshow on the front page and it is looking wonderful. Thank you to all of you have expressed such appreciation for my art work!
Right now I am preparing for an exhibit of some of my work that will be held in Chicago, Illinois at the Awakenings Foundation. That Foundation is dedicated to people who have used forms of Art to recover from violence and they have a beautiful Gallery and a number of events throughout the year to raise awareness about Sexual Abuse and Recovery.
It is my desire that my words and my paintings be a Gift to others and I thank God that the feedback I am receiving is that they are a Gift. Now while I am Entering the Goodbye process with my brother Gioffredo, I feel a surge of Creativity in me, the pain I feel is wanting expression and now my default form of expression has become to Create, rather to Shut Down or to Lash Out.
What a Comfort that is, and I know it is a Ray of my Own Spectacular Dawn.
With my Gift from the Heart, Z moim Dar z Serca, Con il mio Dono dal Cuore,
Gabriel Orion Marie
* For those of you who may not know, I have published a series of three books that tell the story of my recovery and healing from profoundly intense physical, sexual and spiritual abuse. These books have dozens of paintings that I did during my process and those paintings are a core form of communication I used in my Healing. These books are available on Amazon. I hope you will read them and pass them on to others!
