Thank you, Johnny Cash, for being so truthful, so real!

“Johnny Cash” an Amalee Original is a beautiful portrait of a rock n Roll icon and a wonderful man.  This Painting is now on display at PianoFight in San Francisco, until March 8th, 2018.

I love the famous photo of Johnny Cash in Folsom prison, giving the finger.  So I painted that image and used the words “I’m recalibrating my inner sanctimonium!”. I came up with these words when I realized  there are times I feel like an outsider because society does not accept me or maybe it is because I don’t accept society. Either way when I am on the outside looking in, Johnny Cash is my hero.There are times in life when I feel like this.

I am in the process of trying to change my emotional wiring. There is a part of me that wishes I could just download a new operating system. However, I am in the process of dredging my soul for the small and large injuries that created a wiring that I am finding unfulfilling.

As I dig around in the underbelly, I realize the instability of my foundation.   While survival is important, I look forward to enjoying life.

I love this painting because it is funny.  It captures the underground figure in my soul.  Sort of a love/hate reality with humanity.  On the one hand feeling superior and on the other feeling jealous, but not really feeling part of it.

 Thank you, Johnny Cash, for being so truthful, so real!
