Time-Lapse in the art Studio – Update on Alien Girl 2

Hello everyone *waves* Happy Tuesday, we woke up again so let’s make it a good one shall we? ๐Ÿ™‚ I am recording my new painting in progress, for a few reasons.

1. I take a bout a million pictures while I paint, to make movies with, to post WIP pictures to social media and to “see” my work better.ย 

2. If i just record the work, the movies are more interesting and I don’t “over post” on social media, while still offering a peek into the studio, daily. I feel the videos are more dynamic this way and I just think it’s uber coolness.ย 

3. It forces me out of my shell. I have shied away from the camera since I got sick. Cancer ages you faster than parenting, lol. I am actually pushing myself emotionally, when I paint with the camera on. I am growing, while you watch…or don’t watch, it’s cool, I do this for me. I am being brave. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Anyhoo…I have to scoot to the day job and make thatย cheddar. I hope you enjoy the clip, it’s just a few seconds long. At the end I’ll put the clips all together and have the entire painting. That’ll be fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great day. Thanks for being here. Love always, HA! <3

    1. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜ I am learning more about how to be in the reality I’m in with this alien project. Are we not all aliens? Alien to each other. Alien to this land. I’m thinking how human beings treat the whole of the universe as if we are the ones who belong. Like we own this joint. Like the tumor in my spine is an alien part of me. Like maybe we are all just aliens looking for a home.

        1. Well, you know I agree with that statement, whole heartedly. That said, in a weird way these alien chicks, with their human like forms…hold my idea, fully. They contain my idea nicely, giving shape to an experimental abstract concept. We live in a world where humans can be ” illegal” how can a human be illegal? We fight to the death, we kill others, destroy this planet, in the name of what? Possession? Of what? Definitions? Of what? I am overwhelmed by the feelings i have about the state of our world, currently. I have to many feelings these days… So, I paint alien girls…it’s a healthy distraction at least. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe….awww, hell…pass the wine. ๐Ÿ™‚

Don't be shy!
