red bricks, cold land, blue sky

towering bricks

in winter

lost and found

i turn right

into you.

found in an old journal . . .

The nature of a work of art is not to be a part, nor yet a copy of the real world ( as we commonly understand that phrase ). But a world in itself, independant, complete, autonomous; and to possess it fully you must enter that world, conform to it's laws, and ignore for the time the beliefs, aims, and particular conditions which belong to you in the other world of reality.

the ten year circle

it has been 10 years since i was in nyc.

it has been 7 years since i have been inspired, truly inspired to paint.

the colours and textures of the city.

the brick walls, the plaster, the lines, the textures, the mess.

the simple moments found in a city so complex.

just like the t-shirt says - i . . .

it took a few days to feel confident, nothing that navigating the subway on your own can't cure. i was so proud of myself!

north, south, torrential rain, east, west, over the bridge, under the tunnel, i went everywhere - well it felt like it anyways. i walked - alot!!!!!

clyfford still at the Met - oh my!

i breathed deeper.

i walked stronger.

i sat taller.

i sang in the shower - 3 x

i opened my eyes.

i opened my heart.

i broke something like a bull.

i listened. i was listened to.

i drank till dawn, danced till dawn, laughed till dawn.

i walked the village in heels - i just had to.

i am painting again - truly painting!
