To what road does your head travel at the sight of a woman? Or an egg, do you think of breakfast or breast. Maybe form or figure. I asked this question at the house this morning, I really should know better by now, I do know my place.
I was met with words of, creepy and
Exploited, meat sack and odd. I’ve always found the perception of the female form interesting on more levels that one post could hold so someday when we stop for coffee I’ll expand further. I see an egg a symbol of birth, newness. I see mother and female I see soft and distorted. I see green which I find fascinating as color especially since I don’t see green very well so doing an entire painting with only two colors white and green has been a visual journey for me.
I see feminine and lust I see caring and kind reaching yet faceless nameless love. I see many things thus far and she and her egg and her jar, speaking of jar what does she keep in this jar? I wonder.
As you can see I am far from done many more tones and areas need to be worked and expanded upon. I will also be finishing the grapes today
As well as starting in the blue and red thing
Happy Saturday to you and as always,
Be Brave, Be Bold and Thrive in the life you have.

As time evolves it gives and takes
Pushes and pulls
sometimes in every direction at once.
How do we chose our paths
As well are being pulled apart?
So many lights in the night sky
Which ones do you watch
Can we watch them all
Can I keep them all safe
I’ve lost 2 and given one back
To the night from wence it came
I seek harmony yet my mind and
Body flow like the raging river
A constant stream of thought
And motion always searching
Always hollow, aching for
A piece of broken puzzle
Lost like a child’s shovel at the shore
Goodnight and may you find peace in the day that comes.
Even paint brushes need a rest now and again, these poor fellas some of them being in their twenties at this point which is old for a brush these days get a little tired. Time for a nice hot bath ahhhhh, so nice.
So big plans for this Friday night? Who me no make dinner, go to bed that’s the extent of my plans. Maybe troll twitter and say hi to the many fantastic ppl floating about but that’s about as social as I get these days.
Okay need to shower and do laundry.
Much love and Friday Hugs
I hope the day has found you well, I always forget how time consuming this style of painting can be. It’s far from the “action” or expressionistic abstract style work I so often do. I think that’s why I have 3-4 or four of these half finished pieces I’ve been carrying around for years is because I get bored.
With green girl I’ve committed myself to finishing and finishing well not just completing. So while I’m grabbing yet another cup of coffee and I disappear back into the depths of the studio I thought I’d say HI
Giant hugs for everybody!!!
Okay then I’m back at it.
Happy Friday just a little music to start the day. For the first six months after my son was born WE he and I didn’t sleep so every night I would walk around with him and sing him to sleep with this song:
This piece will be one of my projects today. I’ve only put a very small amount of time into get this far just the basic color blocking and design. I think today I’ll start on the shading and see if anything else manifests its self.
Once again and as always, much love and happiness to all of you and thank you for stopping by it truly means more than you know.
This is “Green Girl” I believe we met her yesterday or maybe they day before they tend to blend into each other these days. She is nowhere near being done but has come miles from where she started 20 years ago.
I hope the day has found you well and full of hope.
Butterfly kisses and soft simple wishs
Wings of an angel and glimpses of fishes
Sushi roll and dragon kite
Brave old soldier in the night
Grasping, gleaming of things
He was dreaming
All through the night his fingers
to find the right key
To make the words tight
Buttons and bowlers hats
Stockings and lace
Never to once see the look on her face
Good morning, I hope the day has been treating you well. It’s a dreary day here in town, cold rainy kinda no fun. So lets look as something to brighten the day okay?
This is an unframed shot of
52″ x 40″
Lots of color for our day.
Just wanted to pop in and say good morning I’m off on an unexpected errand talk to you all soon.
Vintage street glass used to act as a sky light in the tunnels beneath the city.
More vintage street glass this stuff makes for great pictures.
****Thoughts***** At the end of the day
When the light fades away
How will you be judged
By your actions as a man
Can you say at the end of the day
That your light shined in the darkest of day
Or our your lips covered in the lies of men
In the end let your actions speak for your words
And let their words speak of your actions
Today ended up being a big day taking its toll physically far more than I would have liked. That’s the funny thing I found about Parkinson’s and the meds used to treat it. I was cruising (well kinda ) cruising for me that is and doing well until pm 5:30 pills. The thing is the meds only treat the symptoms and that is for me at least only when all the stars line up perfectly which quite frankly doesn’t happen that often. So 5:30 pills did virtually nothing. Rather rapidly the stiffness and rigidity of PD set in constricting my major joints, causing cellular fatigue and slowing my pace to a shaky, stiff slow crawl lol good times right…? No not to much, but there’s nothing that can change or fix it so sometimes you just learn to say okay… This is how it’s going to be for now and You keep moving forward. So in my pain I give you my light, my hope and my strength those of you living with pain of head and pain of heart know this, it will change and chances are it will get a heck of a lot better.. In times when you feel over wrought in life’s strife keep moving forward.
Ok so I admit its a little hard to feed everyone or anyone cookies through the Internet but I thought I’d share my day. Yes I ran around like a crazy man for the better half of the whole day. UPS store and the Print shop, grocery store and plenty more. Needless to say I’m beat but I’m making a super ninja surprise for the house Madeline’s yum…. I hope I’ve never made them before so well see how they turn out.
sorry I just had to he he he every time I think of these cookies I think of dear Madeline. So no I did not spend the day cooking little French girls I made these instead.
Grrr. Word Press keeps eating this post, must be the cookies.
I hope the world has been kind with you today.
Sending big ((((hugs))) and cookies to all.
