meet cbabi bayoc
So ... What's a Cbabi?
Well let me tell you.
It's a Creative Black Artist Battling Ignorance
So guess what? ... You can be a "CBABI" too! I don't mind!
but seriously, i'm a husband, father, and then a painter. I've been blessed with a supportive family and i am just getting started in this art thang y'all. Please come along for the ride. I feel it getting real exciting!
Cbabi (pronounced Kuh-bob-bi) Bayoc is an artist who has always known, and lived, his calling: creating art which reflects his love of music and family. This was in fact the reason he changed his name in 1997 from Clifford Miskell to Cbabi Bayoc. He wanted a name that when said always sent him a reminder of his purpose in life.
Cbabi stands for Creative Black Artist Battling Ignorance and Bayoc (which he waited for his wife to discover) stands for Blessed African Youth of Creativity. Cbabi wanted to have a last name that included the attributes of the wife he was going to bear children with because the last name, he felt, should reflect both parents and not just the father.
Our 12 yr old's Birthday and last day at CityGarden. We have been in this community for 14 years!!! Bittersweet 😕 but very proud of this young Bayoc.
"Trust in Your Ability"
This is a rough-in of two hands. I painted over the individ. lines for each finger cause I did them once and believe in my ability to do them again. Don't be so worried about unnecessary details that can stop your flow. Be open to the challenge and surprise allowed you just because you trusted in yourself. #inspiredtoinspire #trustingod #trustinyourself #justdoit #cbabibayocpainting

If you are familiar with the cat that stands by the Vonderrit Myers memorial periodically and waves while holding a "Black Lives Matter" sign, than you have recognized a geniunely heart-filled spirit. He just sat in @sweetartstlouis
and folded up several of these beautiful bird pins with quotes and left a few with us. "It always seems impossible until it's done." Nelson Mandela... #timing #puresoul #genuine #neighbor #blacklivesmatter

Nicholas and Nyheeta: "I remember being told that no court would ever grant custody to the father of a little girl. Not with her mother alive. When I started fighting, I didn't know how I was going to care for my baby girl. All I knew was that life without her would be like taking me off life-support and leaving me for dead. Raising her, over the last 5 yrs, has been the most challenging yet the most fulfilling thing I have ever experienced; and I have ran several half marathons lol. From late night homework checks, to two strand twist with barrettes. From the hard times of laying down a hand, to the emptiest days of when I had to hide my tears, trying to show her that I am still Superman and I will do my best to always be here. I thank God for helping me make it this far and for the support system he has put in place to help me when I stumble, and pick me back up when I fall."
She has been my saving grace who keeps me on the right path. I know if I give up, she fails and I can't afford to let that happen whether on my clock or anyone else clock. So I grind. @itsamindgame #365dayswithdad #cbabibayocpainting #superman #singlefather #dadsmatter #dadsmattertoo #dadsdontbabysit
