Where The Party's At Original Art
The idea behind this painting is that if you’ve got a piñata, you’ve got a party, even if you’re in the middle of a barren wasteland. We may be drawn in by the bright colors, but the thing that makes a piñata so irresistible is what’s inside.
I encourage people to make ugly cakes, draw on their children and break stupid rules. I make colorful paintings featuring objects with smiley faces on them. When people hire me to speak, they gain permission to have all kinds of fun with the theme and branding. People love when I bring my family with me to gigs.
It feels like wherever we go, that’s where the party’s at.
People seem to resonate with our family and I’ve figured out it’s not because we have fun every single moment of the day (Hint: we don’t.) Like a piñata, what people are really attracted to is what’s inside us. Our joy.
Our faith is what drives everything. I can’t imagine my life without it. It’s where our joy comes from. It’s what sustained during the long periods of darkness.
People are searching for happiness, but what I think they really crave is joy, which is deeper and less fleeting. Joy is an inside job.
If you have it, wherever you go, that’s where the party’s at.
