comes ready to hang
Before I tell you about this work, let me cover a quick bit of business. The first two weeks of any new paintings life here, at the art studio, we offer it officially to all our supporters and patrons at a much reduced price. This painting will go to its regular price on September 5th, 2019. If you think it belongs with you and are local we can even arrange an in person viewing. Just shoot us an email and we will get right on it. 🙂 (email@example.com) Now on with the art story.
The People the short story
The People, they come when they come and they are always heavy with information. I feel that I am channeling something larger than I even understand. It’s PURE Source information and the paintings are created almost in a trance like state. They have a visual medicine for the world. You can feel it. It’s like the best warm loving hug, except it’s for your eyeballs and your soul too. 🙂 I’ve tried to “steal that flame”, I mean I can paint them anytime, right? No. I have been painting them for 20 years this year. They show up in visions during meditation. Appearing as a love filled council of information. They appear in my dreams and we spend hours talking and sharing gifts. I remember every bit of those dreams in great detail. I know that dreams you remember are not dreams, they are new information. They are a message. When I try to create these paintings without being first directed to do so, they are flat and lifeless. In these real paintings, they inhabit the image. It’s visceral. They always find their real homes quickly, so you can see why I’d be tempted to make them all the time. They are not about feeding the greed. That’s just not how these paintings work. They are talismans. They are medicine. They do energy work. They clean, clear and preserve. They come with a directive.
The mission this group came with is: Unreasonable Enthusiasm
“When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it.”
~W. Clement Stone
This group is all about the revival of the old fashion “good vibe”. They are excited to be part of the whole, the collective and proud of their uniqueness, joy and strength in the diversity in this expression of visual consciousness. This reality. This moment. It’s good to be alive. It’s good to live and grow and be an actualized being. Awareness is the pathway to healing mind, body and soul. We start with ourselves. We start by ending the lifetime wars, within our own body’s and hearts. We acknowledge the red flags. We do no harm to ourselves or others. We stay at the wheel. We are bullet proof in our true love. Then we share that in our smile, the way we dress, the way we act open and kind to others. We share it all around and the world heals a tiny bit more. We help by planting the seeds in ourselves. By tending our own gardens, the bounty is always more than enough to share with all others. To do any and all things with Unreasonable Enthusiasm. Every day above ground is good.
It’s simple and complex. The work too. 🙂 Each day I find a new person in the painting, (I painted them but am still meeting them all) its fascinating.
I made a little movie about their creation. It felt right to document (for the first time) their origin story. I feel it must be important to the medicine too. I hope you enjoy:
