red sails or Koi

What do we see when we are shown an abstract painting. Do we even see anything at all. Maybe only the colours jump out at you, is it the texture, the groupings. This is one of my latest pieces, turned in all directions. I know which side I see as up, but then when doing the photos, I saw so much else when I viewed it from the different angles.

In my mind when I started, I had the song “red sails in the sunset” running through my gray matter.. later when I stood back and looked at it again, a few days later…. I saw Koi. Each evoked different emotion and thoughts.

When you think.. “I’ve got it,” Think again. It is so easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

old China 12.28

Ola, bom dia. Old China is the latest piece I am working on. You have heard me say this before, as an artist of sorts, I never think about what it is I am gong to do, rather I am just “led”. By this I mean I come into my studio and see something that catches my interest in this case it was a blank canvas. I know I want to use certain colours, I don’t ask why, I just reach for them and let my desire to express take over.

When next I step back and look, I think… ok… what is this. In a distant far off memory, I think of China. A book cover or picture I saw of Old China. Thus the name, Old China. Of course it doesn’t end there, the paint as to dry, so between the layers I have been off doing whatever else has involved my attention The above is about 4,5 maybe 6 steps. I don’t think or plan, I just do.

I realized that much of how I live is like I paint, or express myself. I simply live the moment. I say simply, but it isn’t always simple for those around me. Do you ever consider how your actions can affect someone else. Seems I will have another lesson to put on my to learn page.

In PL we learn, PL Principle 21. I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

During the night and some time in the early hours of the morning. I worked some more Old China. Here she is this morning.

Am I done, I don’t know. At the moment, she is happy … so I will leave her be and check on her later. Meanwhile everyone, have a grand day, the sun is bright in the sky here. Hope it shines on you too.

ps Wednesdsay

My earlier wordless blog, was a fun snapshot I had, that simply had me smiling at the funny things we do when we are young and not caught up in being “prim” “proper” “lady like” and all the other wordings adults have to reign in the innocent playfulness we have as children.

As we mature, and develop, we soon discover that part of us needs to be held back, or kept in the shadows, because “it” may not be appreciated by others. However, we are who we are, and it is not healthy to always try to supress our “child” or “drama”.. drama is not always negative, it is about emoting and expressing feelings.

When we live doing our best not to hurt or slight others taking care to be mindful, avoiding arrogance and conceit, then the simple pleasure of pure expression, can be fun… silly, and inane. When was the last time you made a silly face? Just for fun

To see the snapshot, you will have to visit the first blog of the day =^_^=

in a far away land

way, way far away, I found myself wandering, a tourist for the day,

how magical it was, how soft and fluffy the snow, of course we all know

dreams do come to an end, yet the memory is so clear, I want to keep it near

see the umbrella, perfect place to sit, we could visit and simply BE, in wonderland, forever and a day. If only you would come and play! =^_^=

To live is to express one’s Self!

wicked 8.19

I love this time of year, especially the coming months.  Those of you who follow along, know of my utterly obsessive interest in doing “October” art forms.  I have begun again, I see it sneaking into my various “art” projects.

What has also claimed some of my attention, is fall allergies… We are really not anywhere near fall season, but the weather has been blowing up the country harvests and mites.. The air must be full of something that is not sitting well with my “system”.

Such is life.  The stock pile of tissue boxes will now start to diminish. and the sinus and allergy pills will come out of hiding to be front and centre in my activity areas.

I have long accepted that having seasonal allergies is part of my life experience. Acceptance, makes it easier to do what needs doing, so that I sail through the season with not too many changes to daily life.
