“Creative Vision” by Charles Davis

Charles Davis believes some people say their age backwards to make themselves feel younger. Not him: 56 is still 65. Some things just don’t add up. 

“Creative Vision” (2021) color illustration 11” x 17” • From the artist: “Most of the time people don’t look into a mirror and see life as I do. I see a whole realm of possibilities on the other side of that glass window in front of me. My imagination envisions a whole new world almost exactly as I see a white sheet of paper. Just the thought of ideas as endless as the stars, and yet out of it all, I picture one idea and draw it into reality. I think art has always been an escape for me which is why I’m still sane. Take my advice, pull-out a white piece of paper and it might do your stress level wonders.”
