A Surreal Mirror Painting, The Precious Flower of Hope

An Ink Painting.. The Precious Flower of Hope

The Hope that exists in all our lives and the perspective when we realize that we are separate, yet innately connected to the candle of life that burns within us.  
is an ink painting I made thinking about the little vintage mirror my mom had on her night stand. 

I looked at that little mirror every day of my childhood, sitting on her vanity, on days when I'd be rushing off to school and other days when I'd be dropping in her room to hang out with her and chew the fat about whatever was going on in the family that day or anything else that was going on, which, being that there were sometimes eight or nine of us running around at any given time, really, could have been anything. 

Her little mirror was in the family's estate stuff I helped organize after our dad died, and I just by some strange happenchance was the person that helped move and open that box for the sale. It shocked me, seeing it suddenly after so many years, and in the middle of this strange moment in an even stranger day, having flown halfway across the United States to help close a family estate - An ocean of memories came back to me, about my mom, in those precious moments of childhood that, very much like those boxes, can easily get buried and lost forever.

Hi! I'm Miko, and thank you for checking out my artwork!

I've been painting, practicing photography, 

Miko in art studio working on triptych painting called "Promethea," a three part oil painting ocean series.and I've been doing commercial work for businesses and musicans for over 20 years. I've been drawing ever since gradeschool, and have never been let down from the daily practice of making art. My passion for creativity has led me naturally into sharing what I paint and photograph with the world, first through just drawings for friends, and eventually, into Art Shows I learned to produce and promote to sell my original paintings.

My gallery here is an ongoing hand crafted & built showcase of what Artwork means in my life. Keep checking back as I am continually adding the personal stories to each of my paintings, and putting up new sections of this art space for you to enjoy. If you want to connect through Instagram or my Facebook Page you're more than welcome, since it's easier to post different pictures of what I work on there. I have a wide variety of my Print / Merch Artwork I've created and uploaded to my Fine Art America page (link below) if you are looking for a perfect gift for you or a loved one, and the other links let you see some of how I enjoy playing music, doing art tutorials, and working on my motorcycle. Look forward to hearing from you!
