This was the 1st time I record myself while making something I sketched it at work and painted it at home, but I didn't have the foresight to actually record me paint hence why there's only pics at that point (to busy watch LeBron's decision lol).
I saw a picture on my friends facebook of this little girl in Haiti reading a book and felt compelled to paint it. I later learned after posting it on Choose Haiti's page her name is Ludya so there is the title.
Song playing is Teddy Pendergrass "Your My Latest, My Greatest Inspiration"
The painting is based on a poem I wrote called "Have You Seen Her" A self portrait of me looking for the Angel that has my heart.
Since I got a thing for a beautiful smile
I must of been searchin' for my Mona Lisa
Tell me, have you seen her?
I think I have, and I'm just wanting 2 please her
My love is a necessity, to heighten her already God blessed features
A heavenly creature, dwelling on Earth
The star of my dreams, just want to show the world her worth
So tell me have you seen her?
If you have can you tell her that I need her?
Tell her, she’s the missing piece
The rib God took from me
That’s how she was form
And even if she’s older
Let her know, from my spirit
It was taken, that she maybe born
My Mona Lisa, my inspiration
My dream I dream
She’s my elevation
So tell me, have you seen her?
If you do, can you tell her that I miss her?
Can you tell her she is a queen, a star?
She is the sunshine, she is my heart
Let her know that her smile
Would make the sun jealous
Let her know her eyes
I can gaze into for hours, endless
If I could capture her presences
Paint it or sketch it
I’d put it on the largest of canvas
And share it with the world
So all could see
Hey my Mona Lisa, my muse
I’ve seen you, I need you, I miss you
Can you hear me?
If not, can some one get the message across?
Past time and space
If you see her, let her know
I patiently wait
