Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one. – John Lennon
I am a dreamer.
I won’t give up seeing an ideal world no matter how hard life tries to squash my hopes. Trouble and hate can seem insurmountable and make us falter and veer off track, but the loving dreamers of the world have to hold on tightly to their kind hearts because if we don’t where will we be then?
When life begins to spin you down, be present enough to sense it and then step outside the whirl.
Change your focus.
Make a shift.
Choose to BE a kind heart.
Until next time,
In The Studio today, April 18, 2012 is perhaps a self-portrait. I’m not sure actually but it came straight from my heart today – I threw all caution to the wind and created like none of you would ever see it. I wish I had figured out the power of creating that way sooner! It is hard to show – there is intensity and chaos and love here and so much more if you look. It is a study – I plan on creating more on a similar vein and then maybe some very large ones as well. I’ve thrown most of my usual favorite tools into creating it. Watercolor, acrylic, wax, graphite, magazine collage, grease pencil, metallic, thread, and just a touch of gold leaf!
* I showed this piece to Doug and told him it was a self portrait – just to see what he’d say. He said, “Well, I don’t get that whole self portrait thing when it doesn’t look like the person but I see a heart.” Big Love!
