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

“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

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.



‘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.
