The Backyard, 1997
This was my first work as a visual artist.
I had just woken up and felt that Divine Consciousness was with me, that's when I decided to paint on a sheet of paper with my crayons.
So I started painting this picture of my backyard. Even though I had a humble life, I was fortunate enough to grow up in a house with a large yard full of fruit trees, blessed plants by butterflies where birds sang every morning.
This image is a representation of this time, a photograph of that moment, of some plants in my backyard and how I woke up happily on that beautiful day.
