HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS by IMANI c 1997
Heaven Only Knows is the name of this piece, as of all of my abstract metallic art, this one was the hardest to find a name for. I usually name my artworks on completion, I look at it and a name springs to mind. I did think of Mad But Pretty but didn’t feel comfortable calling it that.
I would really like to start drawing again. I just lost the glow, the oomph to create from my heart.I didn’t and couldn’t feel any artistic passion. Once I start a picture, I work on it on a daily basis or within a few hours, depending on the size. Now that I know why I feel the way I do, I can stop kicking myself with frustration and rage.

As well as working with metallic pens, I also love working with HB pencils, specially those ranging from 3B to 8B. Both of these pictures are on large bright orange card. There are times when I just cannot write and so I draw instead. I know so many beautiful Rastafarian Queens and try to reflect this in my art.
