About "Shooting blanks"
The warrior has many faces! This warrior went through many incarnations before he ended up being what he is in the picture! He was threatening in many different ways and had many faces, some more melancholy and suffering,some humurous, some scary... but yes as the title says, he may look threatening, but he is " shooting blanks" he so ultimately he is harmless, and just practicing...and is a healer.
As an artist I am totally in awe of creation thus colour, texture, feel, taste , everything sensual and sensory appeals to me, as I am grateful for its existence. I am a self taught artist who has always painted since childhood, but never studied art formally or even at school. I have always worked in the creative field though,always been surrounded by artists,and have worked over the past 16 years commercially as a scenic artist/muralist/decorator. As I am a budding artist I have mostly sold my art to private clients, and exhibited at some of their homes,but have also hosted an exhibition or two at community halls, guest houses, and so on.
