It feels out there. I’m… It’s a major rush. I mean it doesn’t just feel out there, I mean it feels out there. You know? Um, kinda radical in a kinda tubular way. You know? But most of all it’s out there.
— Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh
My name is Keith Prossick and I have been painting for ten years, and in a way, picking up the paint brush gave my life a direction and my imagination a voice. I was 32. It is through my work I have learned how to create myself into existence, that is, I use my work to reflect upon my own thoughts, deep inside and see into my truer self. With these visions, I reflect out toward the world around me finding my place. I have used my work to mold and match the imperfect ideal I hold within my mind, the me I wish to be. I am not quite there, or rather here, but I am grateful I came to the realization of my gifts and my tools and at least I am headed in the right direction. In the end, I am just trying to understand myself as a consciousness existing looking up into an ever-evolving Universe that surrounds me. It all sounds out there, but then again, HAVE YOU LOOKED OUT THERE? It’s beautiful … it’s what makes me want to live, within the awe of it all . . . . and EXPLORE!
Every new painting is a new piece to this puzzle I am trying to explore. A learning and understanding. A sense of comprehension through the experiencing, the doing, and the being, ALL dancing within a sense of present awareness. I can safely now say, I have found my center, and from there no longer feel lost in space. I am home within myself and the selves that orbit me, as I them … and though I stand naked upon a new shore, it is nice to be shed of one’s old wardrobe, cleansed and ready for the new.
The feel of new material upon new skin, new thoughts from new visions. Shed what is no longer needed and replace it with choice, will and passion but most of all, a sense of awe toward life and the Earth, and wanting to dance the dance for as long as you choose. To walk into a new Universe that is just coming into Self-Awareness.
We have the power within ourselves to define who we are and the world we wish to live within. It’s an amazing gift we all have. You can be what ever you choose to be. Yes, it takes time and a great deal of hard work and dedication, but once you realize who you wish to be, all you need to do is just start walking that way towards the home you wish to live. Every thing else falls into place. If anything, just start walking towards that which shines.
That doesn’t mean we do not help one another, but if we want to take responsibility for this consciousness we find within our heads, we have to choose it for ourselves, and no other soul can do that for us.
I want to exist, so therefore I will Will myself into existence and mold myself into who I choose to be, and who I choose to be is this Artist, whose Work you see before you. All I want in this life is to be happy as me, to explore this amazing world and share my stories and this life with those I love and meet.

The Heart is strong and it amazes me that what is most needed in our blood for us to survive is the very thing that destroys the stars that created us.
