Hey Beautiful People!

My lovely man keeps an eye out for boards for me to paint on when he’s out and about. I flipped when he gave me this one because the natural grain in the wood was CRAZY cool! A large round face, the shape of these eyes and an outline of a smile was in the very wood itself. Immediately I knew what I would paint! Actually, she pretty much painted herself; I was along for the very happy ride!

centerstage

i remember kissing in snow-muddied side streets as horns blared and the world ran rampant

there were shared aren’t-we-grown-up-and-soooo-cool cigarettes on carhoods

menthal smoke circles rose slowly past our young heads that were bursting with

being OH SO SERIOUS about e v e r y t h i n g

 spilling dreams like breadcrumbs

and radiating enough joyful spontaneity to hang the stars on with room to spare

i remember whispered confidences outside of overcrowded parties we were frightened of

there were purposefully mad jaywalking sprints seasoned with hysterical laughter along with

extremely creative cussing competitions against angry “i’ll run you over, man!!!” cabbies

so much exotic food

more people to watch than our eyes could comprehend

art energy noise click clack horns blaring life in capital letters full stop end of story ignoring screaming noise noise noise

hungry feet that were insatiable for whatever was around the next corner

i watch us now, smiling, through thick dense curtains of time

 like those magnificent, sentient earthbound beings of the highest order

 who stand in the middle of it all waving gently in ever evolving coats of light

 strong patient and silent

the trees of central park cheered us on

you're delicious & nutritious!

Taking a break from blogland to paint my brains out and tend to life was a great idea. Had been feeling overwhelmed but now my life ducks are all in a row and WOW! I got  a lot of painting done! Completed 4 pieces. 4 more are very close to being done and I’ve started 2 others that I’m very excited about. 3 brand new pieces sit in the wings waiting to be sanded/prepped and begun; but they have already made their presence known in my heart! Very exciting!!!

I missed the camaraderie of blogland. For whatever reason I remain a lone wolf in my artistic community here; haven’t plugged in anywhere. So blogland and all You artists of SOOOO many expressions and SOOOO many ways of being are my community….and how very blessed am I!!! It’s incredible to buzz around and see so many lovely people from all over the world gifting their hearts, souls, art of many forms, humor, poetry, stories, struggle, lives, vulnerability, crazy poignant/beautiful inspiration, support and LOVE so freely!!!

I hope You All know how deeply You touch lives with Your gifts. From the simplest post to the wonderfully silliest post to the deeply profound!!!

Thank You from the bottom of my heart for making me (and everyone!!!) know we’re not alone on this journey, for reminding us of the preciousness of everything, for teaching  crazy cool science, and for opening our hearts all the more and pouring in serious joy!!! Kindred Spirits All!!!

Peace out, Rock on, Happy New Year and CHEERS!!!
