Drawings paintings and all types of art stuff. My website is meant to provide art, inspire and inform.

Here is another song I made. These songs I've been creating are the type of music I like to draw to. I've been searching for music that doesn't have words for a while now. I stopped listening to wordy music about a year ago because I realized it interfered with my thought process. I wanted my own thoughts to be clear and not contaminated with suggestive lyrics. So recently I've been recording songs. I think we all have music in our hearts, some tune into theirs and create audio music from those inner tunes. Others hum, or whistle while they work.
When I was little I would hang out in my bedroom on sunny afternoons, laying on my back holding one of my favorite toys and catch songs as they passed through my mind and sing them. This was something I did quite often and was a powerful form of therapy though I had no idea of the depth of what I was doing. The healing factor of music is incredible. I remember after about an hour or so of singing, whistling and humming as I drew pictures I would feel a great sense of (what I now call) awareness. A great sense of relaxation, high frequency vibrations, a blissful feeling.
I still get these feelings from drawing and creating of any form. I have been creating these songs for years as I move about the earth, living and experiencing. Mostly expressed at home. It hit me recently to start recording these melodic thoughts. So here is the product of self realization - realizing that my songs are just as beautiful as my visual art and worthy of sharing with YOU.
Thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts and having an interest in my work.

I am writing this letter to recommend Mr. Dawood Marion Sekhem as an arts instructor.
I first met Mr. Sekhem while he was working for Friends of Sharon Art Studio as a drawing instructor. He has been an instructor at the Studio since 2008, and during that time, he has taught adult and youth drawing and painting classes including a class entitled, “Drawing Tool Box.”
Comments from students follow:
He is also passionate about his work as an instructor and artist. He brings the highest level of artistic standard to the classroom, and seeks to introduce students to a wide breadth and depth of techniques and tools. Most importantly, he is a skillful artist himself, inspired and inspiring and this affection for art making is translated to his teaching.
Based on largely favorable class evaluations, students found Mr. Marion to be an effective and informative instructor.
Comments by students follow:
He knows his stuff and is effective in his demonstration of techniques.
He genuinely cares for his students and despite his mastery of drawing, he still his able to pass along his knowledge and instill self-confidence in his students. I would not know how to improve it (his class).
Was very open with his techniques and tips.
I’m totally confident that Mr. Sekhem could prove to be a valuable asset to any arts teaching program. Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information.
