WORDS
~Passages~
Theses lines find no home
They just are…..
Or are they? Do they not give way to this journey of life?
Each new encounter not unlike a passage from your favorite book or a stroll down the lane at dawn as a gentle warm breeze pushes your hair aside.
These lines find no home…..
Or do they..?
Do they settle in your heart as they do
mine.?
Does the gentle sun as it warms your face remind you of my touch as it does mine to you.
These passages have found a home..
A home in your heart of hearts that only you could have done.

“Passages” **almost complete

Just green tendencies I see these days with strokes of blue and yellow. Red for the pain and white for the light. Such passages are these we travel. What turn is the right one, should I go over or under or simple forget it all and fade away as I walk this next path.
Light echoes in dark corners pulling back the veil of truth, just glimpses I wish I never seen. Passages, some are easy some are not…. And are important.

So fast……IDC-9 332.0

Here we are again you and I. Perhaps some music like in the old days.

Much better… And now to the matters at hand Parkinson’s, painting and life stuff.. First just a touch of the life stuff.
I feel like for the first time in my life I’m surrounded by people that share me desire to grow and thrive in life. People who know and understand the often difficult and quirky man I am. Though I must say I miss spending time with my beautiful and talented daughter Isabella. She and my son inspire me to be a better person daily.
Science(y) stuff….zzzzzzzzzzz
My PD has been changing and shifting as it does and will which in my moment of weakness cause little ripples of pure terror to echo through my soul but what’s a fella to do but ride it out until the fear of a frozen body and active mind passes. Frozen? You maybe wondering, “I thought PWP moved lots “wiggled” yeah….well not really, the Latin for PD is “arresto momentum” LOL not really that quote belongs to Harry Potter. paralysis a’gitans : Parkinson’s disease
is the Latin for PD which is effectively translated into the “Arrest” or stopping of movement or motion. So now you know :) Okay, we’ve had some music and a little “learning time” now perhaps some art to lighten the mood.

This piece is a continued unfinished work in progress. I’ve also been spending more time with “?”
This piece:

IMG_9754.JPG apparently I haven’t taken many pictures yet of this piece. The piece leaning against the wall is coming along nicely though the piece on the table is proving to be a challenge, but that’s a good thing right? Challenge myself to grow, change, continue to push my boundaries as an artist and human.
Oh and I just remembered to share this, I’ll be opening a gallery space here in the building within the next few weeks!!! Woot!!! Well it’s time to hit “post” and do a little sharing, sorry thins are a bit disjointed but sitting and typing doesn’t really happen anymore these days. I’m really trying hard to be very present in my life right now, so for now I’ll bid you adieu.
May all your dreams come true”

Ready, Set,Go…….. And some Arty stuff

So have you ever had one of those days when the world slaps the living crap of you…? Well today wasn’t one of those days thankfully but it certainly could have been. Today I had my in person interview with the state office of Human Services…..Que dramatic music. ;)
So basically I spent 1.5 hours today letting a stranger, mind you a fabulous human, but a stranger none the less into my home and told her all about how I used to be “not sick” aka have Parkinson’s and how now I can barely drink coffee without it being in a travel cup for the fear o wearing half of it.
Maybe a little overly dramatic but my bad days have gotten worse and my good days have gotten slower so today was the day I asked for help. It’s only a four letter word. H.e.l.p. It’s easy to spell,write and say…. But for those of us who never really learned how to ask for it. Well it’s hard as heck to for me to do. Yet when faced with the fact that I need physical help with everything I figured now was a good time to ask.
…..a couple days later…….

Well it was approved!!! Woot!! I’m still waiting to hear how much funds will be allocated towards my care from the State of Oregon but they said yes! That’s all that matters at this point. Now onto some art like things. First let’s take a quick look at some pics I’ve take lately.

There comes a time in every artist life where we must let go. Let go of the pain and memories of our passed. I’ve been growing so much lately. Today I receive back some paintings from my ex-wife. I will be slowly making these available to the public as I find the heart to let them go… First I give you

SHE

The shroud Really made for me 2014 complete, the photo was taken 1/1/15 it evoked a feeling of closure, a literal putting the old year behind me, putting it to bed, entombed in the fading memories of my passed.

SHE is a work in progress a painting just for me.This will be the first of the 2015 My Girlscollection.
Well after having this entire post delete twice, I’m going to leave this third closing statement short.
Cherish the ones you love, forgive the ones you don’t am live with passion for the things you do and have in you life.

Much love and best wishes in this new year.
Namaste,

Half and Half

So here we are…. 1/2 the world is in next year and the other half is waiting to their turn. Honestly I’m sooooo ready to leave 2014 behind. I made some amazing friends and sadly lost some amazing friends. I found and lost love. I laughed and cried as loud as I could and somehow I made it to this last day of 2014. I painted a ton o paintings and traveled around the world. An none of it I worth anything without my friends and family. So to those of you who are still out there, THANK YOU!! You inspire, teach and make me strive to be a better person everyday. You make me try and give me hope, for that and for much much more I’m forever in your debt.

In 2015 I’m hoping to stay closer to home, making just the UK trip and a couple short stateside trips. I’ll be pouring most all of my energy into Parkinson’s advocacy work and painting. Well it’s time for me to hit the “post” button.

Much love and light.

Time for a change…….

Life lately has been like riding a storm at sea without a compass. At times I drift close enough to land to see the horizon lines of where’s I’ve been and where I like to be yet getting there seems to be growing harder and harder as this blasted Parkinson’s changes my brain chemistry.

Honestly I write this in a small moment of clarity when I can actually sit back an see my life and I wonder wtf happened.?
These moments of clear thinking are the ones that cause the most panic I think. When I can see what I was whom I think I am now and see the path that will lead me to whee I’d like to be again. So much work to do to get there. I often wonder how or if I’ll find the energy and resources to get there. But as we’ve all hear before and my grandfather used to say “where there is a will there’s a way” and I’ve always believed that life is just a huge puzzle with moving pieces. I can clearly see where I’d like to be in my life the trick is moving the pieces to the right place at the right time. Plus a ton of hard work and luck never hurt.

“Dear Liza a hole”
I’ll be spending the next few days compiling a group of paintings and prints for an end of the year SALE. I like to start each year fresh so stay tunes if you’ve had your eye on any pieces. Feel free to search the galleries for works o interest.

Again many thanks for your support over the last year I can’t wait to share this new year of adventure and growth with all of you and hey with any luck this will be the year they cure Parkinson’s disease.
“Never give up hope”
Motto for this year. I’ll explain in more detail later.

Much love, light and laughter to all.
Always.
