“please exist, i’d appreciate it”

Working in the studio with ambient music was oh so soothing today. Giving a huge shout-out to Knytt Underground for the mood.
This piece of art will go into the “Once in a blue moon” series in progress. As always love and joy wished for you.please exist, i'd appreciate it.

i listen to my words, but they fall far below

This work of art came directly from my soul. It is muted on purpose to capture the feeling of shape shifting spirit. I experienced this, and fortunately had witness. Had I not; I still may be questioning myself.
And, ahh for the love of cover music. Jennifer O’Connor does Cat Stevens proud with her cover of one his songs. As always, I wish you love, and joy.

Dark clouds hound me sometimes, but i work it out

I can’t say just how much I love Timmy Reynolds. I remember seeing him solo, live in Columbus Ohio. I felt really bad as his genius was boo’d. Sad, thing was everyone who really didn’t understand his music thought they were going to a Dave Matthews Band Concert. I also was fortunate to see The Dave Matthews Band multiple times in Columbus Ohio. I loved it when he kicked off his tour, and had tickets for two nights. TWO separate play lists. So many things in these lyrics are true for me, in the present, where I sit and ponder. The art I created is a bit dark; unlike the bright and shiny pieces that thrill me to make. I am exploring, searching; and thankfully finding answers. Lyrics from this song will be at the end of the post.
As ever I wish you joy and love. #art #artist #exploring #TimReynolds #DMB

dark clouds may hound me sometimes, but i work it out

“Dancing Nancies”

“Could I have been
A parking lot attendant
Could I have been
A millionaire in Bel Air
Could I have been
Lost Somewhere in Paris
Could I have been
You’re little brother
Could I have been
Anyone other than me
Could I have been
Anyone other than me
Could I have been

He stands touch his hair his shoes untied
Tongue gaping stare
Could I have been a magnet for money?
Could have been anyone other than me?
Twenty three and so tired of life
Such a shame to throw it all away
The images grow darker still
Could I have been anyone other than me?

Then I look up at the sky
My mouth is open wide lick and taste
What’s the use in worrying, what’s the use in hurrying
Turn turn we almost become dizzy

I am who I am who I am well who am I
Requesting some enlightenment
Could I have been anyone other than me
And then I’ll

Sing and dance
I’ll play for you tonight
The thrill of it all
Dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
But I’ll work it out
And then I
Look up at the sky
My mouth is open wide lick and taste
What’s the use in worrying, what’s the use in hurrying
Turn turn we almost become dizzy

Falling out of a world of lies
Could I have been a dancing Nancy a dancing Nancy
Could I have been anyone other than me?”

“tonight i’ll dream when i’m in bed and silly thoughts go through my head”

I am working on substrates that are reuse. I had so much fun poking around today in the studio. I picked out a piece of wood for some magic to happen on.
I was so delighted when I turned it over and found “the door to childhood. It also made me think of my friends. Most of the time I am very child-like when creating.
So much wonderment, and joy!
I have loved this song since discovering Napoleon Dynamite so many years ago. I hope you enjoy the song while pondering the pictures. Want more? Tomorrow is a
peek inside the studio. As ever, I wish you joy, and kindness. #art #abstract #encaustic

These are some older works. I was looking at them and pondering my reality. One work is on paper, the other on canvas. I am not sure if they fit with me any longer. Time will know. The lyrics of this James Taylor song made me think of fire and rain as metaphors, as well as literal. I just wanted to share that. As always, kindness and joy. Spread some around.

“they will see us waving from such great heights”

I hope you will take to time to enjoy and ponder the art while playing the accompanying music. Someone commented on the arm they saw in the upper portion of the painting. This song pretty much sums up a reason someone dedicated this song to me. Love and kindness, always. #art #music #love #artist #abstract

As ever I was, am and ever will be,



i confess i am a slacker

I’ve been up to nothing, and alternately an awful lot. Needing some space I found outer space, thanks to my dear friend Joan. Love you Joan!
Painting is bubbling up out of me, and once again I can feel color. Hard to describe this feeling of awe that it gives.
One of my drawings is scheduled to land on the moon, and perhaps be put onto the surface using robotics.

Also a link to some great moon music. As always I wish you kindness, and love

silently scream

Sometimes there are no words. Sometimes there are too many. Sometimes I need to scream, yet I have to be silent. Forced silence. Colors screech out of me and offer some comfort. As always I wish you love and kindness. This piece is available.

“i lost myself on that cool damp night, i gave myself to the misty light.

Oh for the love of lilacs, and Jeff Buckley. When I was young I had a huge lilac bush outside my window, and the smell that wafted over me took me to other places. I miss that lilac bush. I was reminded of it on a trip to The House of Blues in Cleveland when I turned a corner, and my girls and I all said MMMM in unison. What a beautiful night that was. As always I wish you love and kindness.

“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.
