making way


Well, I think it's about finished. Now I need to research and find out the best way to get a coat of varnish on it to protect and liven it up some... I'm still not sure which way is up and like it different ways for different reasons...

Abstract Progress...


This abstract painting is very different from other painting I have done. I have to surrender to the paint and the process and the moment. The ego has to get out of the way completely, because there is no planned outcome. The moment takes over and I have to respond in each moment to the surface, how the paint is drying, how the shapes and colors relate to each other. It is a journey without a destination. Hopefully it will take a pleasing form and inform me when it is complete...



This is the friend who died yesterday - a beautiful juv American Robin.

Another day

Progress from day two in the new space. Also, a photo of what I saw out of the corner of my eye while I was working. This is here because of the inordinate number of mtn lion and panther dreams I have had this year...

Shadowy one...

embarking...

Yesterday I started working in a new space for me, and on a new panel that is huge (for me, anyway). It's 4' x 6.' This is what happened the first day - just getting it covered with paint. We'll see where it goes...

Water...


Yesterday evening I was talking with friends about a dream I had recently. In the dream I said,
"I have been in every body of water on the planet."
This morning early, I saw that a new lily was coming in my pond, but not yet open. Now, a couple hours later, the sun has peeked out and the lily has opened. Since my goldfish usually consume the lily within a day, I thought to capture it this morning.

This morning...

I was going out to photograph the painting I'm working on, and came across a lovely spider, also putting up a photo of the bead my pal found nearby yesterday and gave to me....

Family....


It's been a busy summer with lots of family time (relatively speaking, anway). This weekend we had the whole family in one place for the first time in about seven years - actually exactly seven years...

This morning...

I went up to Franklin and Cowee with a friend who needed to take pictures for a local magazine - I took a few too...
