Woody paintings are sought after by informed, eclectic private art champions because they are beautiful, functional and fundamentally positioned to grow in value over time.
James e. Woody, one of the world's first proclaimed and recognized African-American Transpersonal Abstract Expressionist Artist, hopes that his "new art" will spot, then depict new ways of seeing, new modes of being, new forms of cognition, new heights or depths of feeling and in all cases, new modes of perception to become a catalyst for helping others discover their self empowered inner wisdom, the single most powerful and lasting seed of change!
It would be impossible to capitulate Woody's life in this short allocation of space and time. So at his request, we have embedded this list of musical performances from a few of his favorite iconic and acclaimed musical geniuses. For just like a Woody painting, these songs remind us that redemption is possible and true artistic expressions are the fruits of much self-sacrifice.
