When the drawing "Man's Own World" was completed in 1981, during my high school senior year, instinctually I knew that a very special art piece had just been created. One that would mark a high point in my artistic career and begin the quest to become a true artist.
A "true artist" as defined by CP:
An individual that creates art out of pure passion
for posterity, based on his human life experience,
and with a sense of gratitude to the Creator for his
existence that allows him to serve a grander purpose.
Years would pass before my mission in life, through fine art, would be deciphered and understood. During this era of fine art development (view chart), it would serve vital in acquiring the tools, process, time and result needed in activating a philosophical, individual and mind-body wellness within me that would result in forever making my artwork personally rewarding, meaningful and successful.
On my own, I had learned to define and gradually advance this fine art development in all my art pieces in order to contain a metaphysical construct in various states (minimal, mid & maximum) by using a layering of messaging, symbolism and meaning. This new developmental artist in-the-works would not yet be fully comprehended by myself or others.
What was happening to me was a self discovery of soul enrichment. I was learning about the type of artwork that would eventually be my brand of fine art. I would later define it as "metaphysical art." Each art piece would reveal itself by its 3D construct of philosophical art messaging and my passion for creating more of it would increase.
What would not be known at that time, was that the newly created art piece "Man's Own World," at its minimal state-of-being in metaphysical construct, would be my calling in the arts, by embarking me on a virtuous journey towards having a sense of purpose for my artwork. From that point on, a serious complex tone would be set for the philosophical art messaging (view sketch) of all my art creation.
As you take some time to view "Man's Own World" at its mid state-of-being in metaphysical construct, you will notice; the New York City skyline that shows the New York City Twin Towers, both standing tall with darkness surrounding the buildings (symbolism: evil all around). Also, notice; the cold death feel each human figure represents (symbolism: progressive decapitation of man). Plus, notice: the cracking broken glass being depicted (symbolism: chaos and destruction in each man's world). Finally, notice; the bright illuminating street lights (symbolism: sun and moon cult religions). All of which, this symbolism represents the next metaphysical layering of 3D construct of philosophical art messaging.
The art piece “Man's Own World,” at its maximum state-of-being in metaphysical construct, is a representation of an opening through the fabric of time, slightly slipped open to unveil a warning made to us all that it was time–to awaken and prepare! A morbid physiological metaphor is one for a fast changing world, sadly, not for the better. This was the final layering in the 3D construct of philosophical art messaging.
On September 11th, 2001, the warning message behind “Man's Own World” would finally materialize for everyone to see. It would change America and the world forever. It would also drastically change my priorities of life, as I am sure it did for countless others. Creating meaningful and purpose-filled art would be my focus from this point onward. God, family, country and freedom, would now be the prime order and motivational factors in all my artwork.
The destruction that pure evil was about to again unleash post 911, and upon humanity, especially towards Christians, would become mankind's dilemma to dwell upon for decades to come. Combating this intolerant ideology of evil, would unite Americans, only for a very brief moment in time (about six months), then the real answers to the questions: who?, what?, when?, where? And why?, would be evaded.
Unfortunately, what really happened to America on 911 would be hidden away by its 'true perpetrators' from the American people, with distractions, distortions and lies that were told in order to keep the real truth hidden away. This decision made against American citizens by the puppet heads of the U.S. government and its puppeteer masters that controlled them, along with the rest of the network nations, began a growing tide of [political] divide and [patriotic] discontent that would be witnessed across American landscape in the form of political or unity rallies in the short years that followed.
For me, these turn of events in the U.S.A. would only strengthen my resolve to create fundamentally principled artwork that would highlight my [Christian belief] faith that was continuously being formed and strengthened on top of other wisdom and knowledge based systems.
The disappointing aspect in the nightmare of 911 would become that Americans eventually went back to sleep and remain ignorant as they were prior 911 to what was truly happening with the internal and external strategies being applied to take down America by her enemies. Traditional Americana (and adjoining capitalism) was being removed and replaced with dark/evil internationalism that contained lethal dose of creeping totalitarianism made up of socialism, communism, fascism and fused Islam/Mohammedanism and anarchism. Even worse, the rest of the world was also increasing its anti-Americanism through the confines of the United Nations. America's enemies were on the move!
What needed to be achieved with my art had become obvious by 2002 as my temporal mind had been nudged me into catching-up to my creative mind. This merger of mind-body connectivity was mostly due to the parallels between 911 and “Man's Own World Drawing” and it had resulted in the amount of time I invested in learning what was really happening in the world through; history, politics, culture, science and religion, by consuming news, researching information, buying and reading books and magazines (especially printed in late 1800s and early 1900s), streaming internet shows and documentaries, going to the theater, watching television and cable T. V. and listening to conservative news podcasts and terrestrial and on-line radio.

Man's Own World
by Carlos Pijeira
When man concentrates too much in oneself
and not enough on others, ultimately he begins to break apart from life itself.
Poetry Collection of Carlos Pijeira
By 2004, I had consumed a blanket of information about civilization and was subliminally looking for patterns to justify what I had been sensing, in regard to my surrounding, and philosophically questioning life's meaning since starting the quest of my art career. Unfortunately for me, fine arts had been put on the back burner due to one thing or another and substituted with graphic arts during the late 1980s and 1990s. All for which could be directed towards–not as an excuse, but as a reality check–a lack of inspiration for artwork creation.
In 2006, my learning curve had been enhanced to the point that my creative abilities were ready to once again be expressed with all that had been leaned and experienced. To do this meant that my regular job which was consuming and draining my passion in the arts for a false sense of security, would need to be removed and replaced with a new revival and outlook for my life's mission. Thanks to some money that I had saved up, the time would be right to make the transition into freedom to be a true artist!
While acquiring knowledge and wisdom to expand my mind analytically, in order to support my creativity in better art creation, I was ready to focus solely in my life's work of creating what I would describe as metaphysical art. My real reality and surreal reality clicked together and I began to realize the type of art I had created and was about to continue creating.
Finally, at the end of 2007, I had enough of wasting valuable time by being plugged into the monotonous machine of the [working society], and took the much-needed leap of faith into fine arts-an action that was taken in part as inspired by one my favorite mentors “Rush Limbaugh” and was drawn from one of his syndicated radio show monologues, which I listened to while working, that promoted the idea of “doing what one loves to do, no matter what.” I had made the decision to leave the safe confines of a regular job to find my way back into the world of art that I had left in the late 80s. Soon afterwards, the vision for the special project “Art by CP” would be materialized!
Throughout mankind's history, an ideological plague of totalitarianism had been metastasizing and growing in size with power and greed. Hidden away in the darkest bowels of civilization were lost souls that sided with evil, and they showed their vile intent to destroy humanity's freedom with an obsession they possessed since the very beginning of time.
A strong feeling within me was emerging that felt as I had a moral obligation to do my part in fighting the spiritual war of good against evil–on the side of good and righteous. Right into 2008 this deep urge was telling me to do my part in helping guide man back towards God with the talent that I have been provided with. The foundation of inspiration for Art by CP had been laid, and also with my artistic purpose for my mission in life.
During 2010-14, awakened American patriots were tired and grew impatient with government and its leaders. They began to voice discontent and opinions with a new vibrant movement called the 'Tea Party.' These Americans had enough with the political establishment that had run Washington D.C., going back to at least four presidential terms. America was finally beginning to embrace a true hope and change. They were going to stay awake and not let their great nation sink any further into despair.
At the time, things everywhere were getting worse and Washington's political class elites were ignoring the deep concerns of everyday decent Americans. By 2015, the political season for the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections was forming into action. A newcomer would come into politics and take America over by storm–a man named Donald J. Trump. He would enter the race and eventually win the Republican nomination, and then go on to the main U.S. Presidential race. The evolution from Tea Party to a Trump Party of “America First” and “Make America Great Again [MAGA]” had officially begun. America and the world, by the hand of God, would have at least a chance now, to be saved from the jaws of evil!
Then came the 'new day to remember' [November 8th, 2016] and with it came election night! A new U.S. president would be chosen as the 45th U.S. President. Donald J. Trump would be elected to fix the chaos left over from previous leaders. The heated contest had left America more defined and divided than ever. As the shock wave spread across the America and the world an internal ideological war between a fresh nationalism and tired globalism was about to go nuclear. This power shift was huge, and took the argument of left versus right paradigm to new level. It was now seen as group tyranny versus individual freedom.
A psychological under currant existed following the 2016 election that was 'America had dogged a bullet' and that the winner on the Republican side was to save America's decline of being the world's solo superpower. This man stop the dark forces of globalism that were caught with their hands inside the control levers of America. These leftist progressive globalists would fight back with all their consolidated power in order to prevent the new President from making America great again.
President Trump had in his hands an opportunity of a lifetime and of generations to reclaim all of what could make America great again. He had the chance to stop the domestic and foreign enemies of the United States dead on their tracks from advancing and finishing off what remained of classic Americana. He could now recapture of the spirit of American love of country, innovation, entrepreneurship and freedom.
As I witnessed all of this wonderful and glorious real hope change in late 2016, my evolution to be a true artist became even more vibrant and pronounced. I was able to recognize the promising times ahead for the nation I loved and the world that needed the American beacon of hope and freedom. The euphoria within me would quench years of great stress, and I could now focus my skills and talent into creating future realistic and surrealistic metaphysical art.
Internally, America's was in shambles from years of progressivism/leftism take-over of all the nation's government and main institutions, made possible by previous American leaders (traitors). Hollywood had crushed the positive American values and image, domestically and internationally. Academia had brainwashed the youth of America and distort true history while disrupting proper learning. I could go on and on and keep listing all of the mass destruction–which I intend to do in other future blog posts–but, lets just cut to the chase for now, and let me claim that 'America the beautiful' was just about no longer, but and was on its way back to be better than ever!
No thanks to our enemy's ideology that took no prisoners, which was dead set in destroying all of what made America great, the present-day outlook for America had been bleak at best, until true hope was blessed upon us all. All of us living on Earth now had a new chance to mend the prior wrongs and to get closer to God again. It was the least we as his children could do to thank him for the blessing he bestowed upon us. Our hearts needed this divine 'hope and change,' and we needed to help spread the good blessings.
The future indeed looked promising, for those of us who believed in God and America [IN GOD WE TRUST]. We were ecstatic and knew the dark veil had been removed from over our heads. Things were about to get much better very soon for everyone if we did not lose the faith in the Lord and followed His teachings by staying on the righteous path. It would be up to spiritually revived Americans now to continue the American traditions with American exceptionalism and to lead from the heart and mind with peace through strength, and from the front!
Man no longer can trust polished politicians who only know how to say all the right things in order to lead and destroy humanity. We need men of proven results to defend and protect humanity. We need to love our fellow man. We need to get closer with God! As the poetry "Man's Own World" states, "When man concentrates too much on oneself and not enough on others, ultimately he begins to break from life itself." The near future will tell if we took in the warning.
