Hey folks, what’s happening? Me? Oh, not much just a little of this and that. Grinding away, just like everyone else. I have been working on the new alien encounter girl…on with the show, shall we?
The beginning Where you all last saw her.details
And this where we are now. I hope to work on her a lot this week and maybe even bring the work to a close. I have another encounter waiting in the wings to begin. I have learned through force, (chronic illness) to listen, deeply listen to the work. Learn what they are here to teach and release that into the world. All the love, that is my reason for everything, Love always HA!
Good Friday to you, I hope this post finds you well. I’m gonna do a quick re-cap on the week in studio and then maybe blather a little, I dunno, we will see what happens. 🙂
Alien encounter #3 is coming along, I’m still struggling with an uncooperative pain levels, so progress is slow. There are benefits to being chronically ill…yup, for sure. I am forced to move slower, plan a little more and spend time with the work telling me what to do next. This work is huge, and feels so good while I’m working on her, I literally lose time. That’s the good stuff man, the good, good stuff. Oils on canvas, 24″ x 48″ x 2″ Here she is now…
I took her outside for the light and true colors but also because she mentioned she liked the sound of the waterfall in the pond outside the studio. We sat in the Oregon sunshine soaking up rays and watching the family of hummingbirds, dive bomb the bright sparkling water drops, at the top of the falls. Some dragon flies came by to gossip and we visited with the awakening Maple that resides as Queen Mother to the garden. In her chloroform light we decided on some color choices for her candy colored clouds. She’s very quiet and rarely speaks. When she does, it’s a breathy whisper, like echoes carried by the breeze. She did share with me, that the other alien girls have a a desire for their own personal, names. We have three now, with a fourth appearing in my dreams, she will be here soon. So, while we will run with the series name “Alien Encounters” , the ladies will soon have their own names. I have a thrilling sensation when I work with them, the resonance of my ideas and reactions to the world at large, are held perfectly within these strangers…once alien, now family. 🙂
Have a great weekend, I have to run and get to the day job. Love to all! <3 HA!
Hello everyone, I hope this post finds you well and good.
I have been working, as you know, on the “alien encounters” series recently. The idea forced it’s way into my brain pan, like a wildfire eats fir trees. The first encounter was a mad-cap, running with scissors, kind of deal. The idea itself had to be born and come to an initial fruition. It was like drinking gin on an empty stomach, she just happened. 🙂
We were both left breathless and excited. She was dreamy to work with. You can see her creation story here.
Then, out of now where…another encounter. This one, she didn’t sneak up on me, she flew into my life on a magic carpet, drinking a blue martini! She is such a cutie-pie, pin-up girl. (side note, full disclosure, I had a short run in the past being a pin-up girl painter) All though, she is still a WIP, because she can’t make up her mind on what color her bikini bottom is. Sheesh! 🙂
I am thinking about the why of these girls, because now there are three…
I know I am painting from my inner voice when things like this pop into my world. I am painting the “alien” in myself, in you, in “other”, in them, in us. I am talking to the part of myself that is screaming…and won’t stop, btw, about how there are no “illegal” humans. That our earth is HOME. That we share space and no human being should be homeless, hungry or alone. I am painting the “alien” on the other side of some skin color, or wall or religion. I am painting the “alien” opinions, information, new thoughts on a social experience, that currently, is on full-tilt boogie. ( exhausting) I am painting the “alien” that lives inside ourselves, the shadow, the story no longer told, the experiences survived and the ghost stories. I am painting the “alien” experience of a world awakening and empires dying, right before my stunned, amazed eyes and sturdy but tired, soul. I am painting the “alien” idea of immersion, resonance and humor that does no harm. I am painting the “alien” idea that a white woman can paint any other skin tone of people; that she is free to explore the wonderful world of human “shades” without ridicule or judgement. I am painting the “alien” idea that I always could paint anything I want too and that I am scared to paint outside myself and what I know and am!!! Wow! Awesome! I get another chance to be brave and go for it and possibly fail and make an ass of myself? OK! I’m in. I only get one shot at the being alive thing…so yeah, I’m gonna do it.
Watch me now…werk!
