This is Post #990-We are the ones we have been waiting for.
The quote in the title is by: poem for South African women by June Jordan
Transformation of any kind always exacts a holy tussle. The newborn butterfly struggles to open its wings so it can conjure up the strength to fly. So, too, with artists, inventors, mystics, and entrepreneurs.
Above you’ll see a picture of my studio as it sits ready and waiting for the next painting session. These are two new works, plus one that is an old one that I have been moved to complete. (finally)
I can’t really work fast enough, the art is flowing in the studio these days. Making art sales, inspires me. I have to say…after all the ego deaths and words to the contrary…it feeeeellsssss goooooddd to make a bunch of sales. Real good, indeed.
I’m having to go deep into the studio vault and haul out all the works…all of them, and sell them off for what will come nice and easy. No more room for homeless art. I need the room to expand new works, series creation and continuations, new ideas, new stuff man, I’m on freaking fire over here, send help.
Here is a link to my newest completed work: Modern Madonna (the picture sucks, sorry I have had the worst time with my dammed hands of late and so that’s not so good for taking pictures, thank the Universe I can still paint or I’d be freaking nuts right now too…anyway…) Now a close up.
I’ve not completed the text for her yet, her meaning is still being discovered in my mind. I was inspired by another artist N Kumar and this is what happened. It’s still a mystery. But she speaks in the dark. She glitters and glows in low light, I like that about her…Madonna’s should glow and glitter with the love they extend to us all. All I can say is I can’t stop the flow to write the text for her right now, I’ll come back round soon enough…can’t stop must press on, must get art out of inside of head space….ARGH!
So, anyway, I’ve got a busy week…see new work…see BAD! Kitty work and work and work some more.
Have a great week, and stop by my place to see what’s on sale (every freaking thing I think is now on sale) come see what I might have dug up from the vault and added to the sale, and for heaven’s sake…don’t forget to make me an offer. I’m listening. Artist does not bite; at least not if you are buying something and I’ve had all my shots anyway. 😛
Vote, no it’s not a perfect system but it’s what we can do. Work with what you got, move inside to make change happen from within. Vote, if you are a US citizen…just go vote this week. It’s important to us all. Be heard.
