Standing at the oceans shore, I am a single voice amidst the roar.
Standing in a desert land, I am a single grain of sand.
Standing on a mountain peak, I am a single wind blown leaf.
Standing in the crowd alone, I am a single melodic tone.
Standing in the dark of night, I am a single flickering spark of light.
Standing in heavens grasp, I am at home with my Father at last.

All of the above images are miniature colored pencil drawings on white paper approximately 3.5 x 5 inches. A tribute to the Professional Bull Riders, a tip of the hat to their skill and courage. Also, acknowledging the power and strength of the bulls they ride. In these drawings I tried to capture not only the power but the quite beauty that lies within the explosive strength of a bull.

|"Emerging Amarillo Sol"|
Watercolor 9x12 on white paper, border added using Paint Shop Pro
Another design from the 'Seeing Shadows' series again showing the outline form of the horse only as it emerges from out of a brilliant yellow color (the sun?) and into the viewers vision. A glimpse of the reality that hides?

Life in its Simplicity is Still Simply a Choice!
Roads we tread
|"A Dangerous Path!" Copyright MalekoArts 2011|
Decisions we dread
Lies we tell
Glimpses of hell
Rivers we cross
Dreams we've lost
Mountains we climb
Those left behind
Paths we take
Choices we make
A destination found
Simply heaven bound
The above photograph was taken on January 2, 2011 in the mountains where I frequently go to ride my mountain bike
and to lose myself. The bible tells us Jesus often went into the wilderness to pray and I find myself doing
the same thing. I find that ideas for me are often birthed in the solitude and simplicity of nature. ~Maleko
Update - Originally posted in January of 2011, one of my goals for the new year was to live my live deliberately and to be conscious of every choice. Knowing that every choice for one thing means a choice against something else and nothing is left unchanged. After three months, this simple fact remains unchanged and has borne itself out both positively and negatively in my life. I encourage everyone to live your life on purpose, engage and always choose for the good against evil but and not allow the fear to rule our choices. A reminder to all that you do have a choice and to choose life! ~Maleko April 2011
