“story prompts”

is what i think i should call this latest series of inkstain scry work…
i like the idea of my pictures being worth a thousand words. can you think of a story to go with one of them? if i sit with it a little bit, i am sure i could.
a little fodder to get the brain moving, i guess.

before…
& after:

coming soon:

up top: “my magic monday” 9X12…$75

this is why i don’t do drugs

my brain is a weird enough place when i’m straight….

these are all, again, ink stained paper that i then stare at until i find an image/story.

uptop: “i had the craziest dream last night” 6X6 charcoal pencil & soft pastels on watercolor paper…$35

top left: “mama told me not to come” 9X12 charcoal pencil, soft pastel, & ink on watercolor paper…$75

top middle: “love’s burden” 6X6 charcoal pencil & soft pastel on watercolor paper…$35

bottom: “mansplaining my uterus” 8X8 charcoal pencil & soft pastel on watercolor paper…$55

in my heart

what i have been meditating on….

good or bad, my actions do not define me.
only i know what is in my heart
therefore
i cannot possibly know
what lives in another person’s heart
& should not judge them by their actions.

up top: “releasing the bluebird of happiness” 6X6 mixed media on watercolor paper…$35
above left: “let’s save the species” 8X8 charcoal pencil & soft pastel on watercolor paper…$55
above right: “those meddling kids…they might just save the world” 9X12 charcoal pencil & soft pastel on watercolor paper…$75

all of these were done by making an ink stain & finding an image in the stain…you know, reading the universe’s tea leaves.

10% of my annual earnings will be donated to 350.org.

see what i can see

my scrying in inkstains to make art is like reading the tea leaves of the universe.
but that’s how i do things, i’m always trying to find the hidden messages.
maybe it will make sense.
maybe it won’t, but at least there will be a story to tell.

ask not….

so i was doing my tarot cards on new year’s eve, wondering about success in the new year, & got a terrible awful no-good really bad reading.
& cried.
i am not one to do new year’s resolutions because i believe in changing every day–not just pledging to change once a year, but i have been doing “vision boards” the past several years, putting out to the universe what i would really like it to do for me, thank you very much….
but!
this year
i am saying to myself, “ask not what the universe can do for me, but what i can do for the universe.”

that being said, i am trying to figure out how to set it up so that 10% of what i earn with my art & writings is donated to the organization 350.
i have to iron out the details. i am guessing that i will be donating what i earn vs. what the sale of my art & writings is? i wish i could afford to donate the gross, but i only earn so much of what my art & writings sell for (unless they sell directly through me), so i am thinking i will be donating 10% of my own earnings after all the costs to my publisher, market place, etc are taken out?

starting….now!

so buy my art or buy one of my books & help save the world!
happy 2023!
