time to get serious…

i am quitting
reading fiction
for the time being in order to focus on
writing fiction
like turn the music up loud and wait for inspiration
much like i am doing with my art lately
so let’s see what happens….

i am still reading non-fiction
currently: genghis khan and the quest for god (highly recommend)
which may have inspired

i have been playing with finding an image in an ink stain & finding the story in it.

a fairy tale life

i am searching
for a way
to tell a story with my art
as the true story of me
unwinds in my heart
& head
retold
with a new voice
i try to find
the best path
forward

my process for this one (& for “escape”) is to stain a piece of watercolor paper, find an image in the stain, and bring that image/story to life with pencils, oil pastels, ink, & acrylics.
i like what is happening.
& it is kind of a blend of techniques i have used as well as new approaches to art.
maybe i should throw in some collage?
i guess as i figure out who i am…i figure out how to express what i need to express.

9X12 ink, oil pastel, pencil & acrylic on watercolor paper…suggested price of $75

creepy art for all hallows eve….

feeling a bit creepy
and it shows in my art
this is the one day of the year
i wear make-up
i will be answering my door tonight
as a gruesome ghoul
& handing out monster
cookies.

“flower garden massacre”… 9X12 ink & acrylics on watercolor paper….suggested price of $60

cheating on inktober

the other night
i had a dream
that i should add acrylics
to my ink drawings

so i woke up & tried it

“patron saint of forgotten love spells” 9X12 ink & acrylics on watercolor paper…$60 (suggested price)

fire

last but
certainly
not least
fire
my fire
i love to watch you dance
& so often
i burn myself
on your flames
but i come back again
& again
because
even it it does not make sense
for water
to love fire
i crave
your bright & enduring heat.

(this one dedicated to the many many many fire signs i have adored–both friends & lovers)
