Rescue 27

Rescue Abstract Art

Sometimes a dramatic rescue is a simple act of showing up.

This piece is all about Gil. I think of him when I see red, especially if it’s an emergency vehicle. He’s the kind of person that just shows up. I’m extremely grateful for his friendship, ear, wisdom, and his extraordinary ability to point people in the right direction— Up.

I took some photos a few years back, when my friend and I visited him at the Station. I wanted to create something bold and exciting… something to represent the “constant motion” that is everything Gil.

So…this one’s for you my friend.

This image is actually one of my favorites in the Everything Red series so far. It’s kind of an abstract, faceless portrait.

Anyway, I thought I’d wrap it up with these 7 Points from one of his favorite people.

-Be true to yourself.
-Help others.
-Make each day your masterpiece.
-Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible.
-Make friendship a fine art.
-Build a shelter against a rainy day.
-Pray for guidance and count and give thanks for your blessings everyday.

Peace & Love!
