2012 is turning out to be a very creative year for me.
I'm going in directions I never saw coming.
First there was the "Be the Vessel" series,
and a painting and poetry collaboration with Taschie......
(I can't even wait to tell you what she and I have dreamt of doing next OMG)
Now I'm creating a sculptural series, I'll call "Totem & Scrolls".
Here's a few shots of the "totem poles" I worked on today......
They were a bit difficult to photograph -
probably because I haven't devised a way to hang them yet.
I'm sure I'd give you a better idea of how they'll actually look if they were hung.
But I've only done 3 so far and I can never wait to share a day's work with you.
If I told you the thoughts and dreams that were wound around, tied to
and painted upon these "totem poles", you wouldn't believe me.
I see them hung in a series - vertically, horizontally or diagonally.....
even random scattered placement across a large wall.
Or standing in a corner or a few gathered in a large vase.....
There's no "scrolls" yet to share - because they're still an idea percolating.
But you know I'll snap pics when some are born.
By the way, the paintings you see in these photos were done by my Mom.....
They're at least 7 years old -
a few days ago, I convinced her to give me a more recent work.
The newer ones are incredibly different and beautiful and ethereal.
It's amazing to see how an artist's work changes throughout the years.
Only yesterday, my own work was entirely different.....truly . . . only yesterday.
Isn't that magical?
It's almost like a living journal of your life because you remember things that were happening,
thoughts you were having and dreams you were dreaming during the making of each art piece.
What are you working on?
