“I made it to my spaceship, been rising all day”

I can’t say enough how much I love Macy Gray – I can’t say I have been especially creative or productive this past week; please let that change. This song was on loop as I danced and worked on series remains. (Meta-Art) The remaining bits and pieces from making art.

Rethinking oh so many things. Exciting though is the potential for the #makers space and #creative reuse that is just a tad bit away from opening.

I was told by an artist that I should smooth out my rough edges, but, do I want to lose the edge? I love the scraggly edges of the reuse material that will become a wall hanging.

I hope you enjoy the song and the pictures of various pieces of work going on. As always I wish you love and kindness. #art #makers #reuse #community.

Music: Macy Gray -Stoned

Art: Random work of mine.

‘They’re telling me to choose; but there’s only lies to choose from’

I absolutely love Michael Franti & Spearhead. I have played this song countless times, it gives me strength knowing I am not alone.
Brilliant lyrics to make one think. Today I want to share one of the best self portraits I have ever seen. Self portrayal of Susan Loughry is spot on accurate, and I aspire to that level of creativity. Also, still moving, and I think some deconstruction going on today. I hope to be in that space tomorrow. Today’s post also will include a pictures of “The Series Remains.” I am reducing what I am using to its barest minimum. Meta art is being born! As always I wish you happiness and love.

“desperation’s the tenderest trap, so gently you go”

From the studio Monday – Shouting out to the Sisters today. Special Shout outs to Susan, Trish, Joan .@Wohali and Francine. Thank you for the friendship, the uplifting, and also inspiring. Sister Awake is the name I gave to the piece in the window. I played the Tea Party for awhile on my ipod, checked out a multi-dimensional work of water color, and pondered where I would go with that. The current body of work exploding out of me is pushing boundaries of materials. I love the armored sculpture belonging to artist and permaculture practitioner Susan Loughry. Susan said she picked it up somewhere after attending what sounded like a wonderful pottery workshop, not to mention blacksmithing! YES! I said blacksmithing. Wishing you love and happiness.sculpt

“You got wings on your fingers”

You know, I really did dance in the window, in a frame for a few minutes. I don’t think anyone saw that #performanceart, nonetheless it was fun. I listened to the song on my ipod:  The Meat Puppets song titled “shine.” I enjoyed it, but had wished I was more surrounded, encapsulated in it. Staging a window fun and has a point! The thinking of this stage was to say I have a fear of a blank planet.  Our plans are to have a Portal to Creative Reuse, as well as space for a Portal for Creative Connections. A mission to reduce waste, and think of art in a different way. Art working was fun. I did work in reference to the last post music. (Collective Soul- The World I know.) Thinking about the state of the world, I worked on deconstruction of a canvas for the tortured canvas concept.  Score today: one new start, one disaster. and one reuse project started as well as the one dance in the window.  And most of all I shined. As always I wish you love and happiness.

“so i walk up on high, and i step to the edge to see my world below.”

Not all of the art I make is with paint. Sometimes I go digital, fun stuff! I created this portal for no specific reason, but it was telling me something, but what? I now know and will be revealing more. I am going to load some of my paintings and continue move into a very sacred and special place. I am thinking today will be productive. This wonderful song by Collective Soul will inspire me today. I am not sure where that will lead. As always, I wish you love and happiness.

“and its whispered that soon, if we all call the tune, then the piper will lead us to reason”

I am listening, and it makes me wonder. I will get a better picture of a spiral staircase where I am making art. This staircase is like a siren’s song to me, I wonder where it can take me. Yesterday I experimented with monoprinting. I am not completely in love with it. But, I did enjoy trying it. Will I do more? Hard to say. Always wishing you love and kindness.
I hope you enjoy pondering the art while listening to the music.

There’s a place I like to hide, a doorway that I run through in the night.

“I’m smiling next you in silent lucidity. I can’t say I am a Queensryche fan, but this song ! Oh, the beautiful classic  rock song.

I had this song on loop as I created the painting. “All the mornings of the world.”
