Adding color to
my night. Progress is made.
Paint swirls and flows.
The sound of crashing
waves engulfs my entire
being; beams of light.
Just finished developing the second painting to my new series: LandEscapes.
This was inspired after a magical evening spent just south of Big Sur, CA. We were just sitting there, totally engulfed by the waves crashing before our very eyes. There was no need to worry about anything, all of it was before us, washing out with the ebb of the ocean’s breaths. The sunlight was a spectacular site, creating a dramatic skyline from a storm that was creeping into the evening. It was hard to look away from the glowing halos the crashing waves carried as they threw themselves against the sea rocks.
You rock rocks. Thanks for the Escape.
A few resolutions came to my mind on New Year’s Eve, including: get stronger (physically); show others love more often (compassion & kindness); be grateful and act. (The gratitude I have for those I’ve surrounded myself with is too much for words; I can only say thank you for your love and patience.)
I can’t just continue to think about “what if”s and make up excuses, I need to act. This need for action is mostly regarding my lack of creating new artwork and finding that escape I’ve always enjoyed. Today I will act and show some recent action of my creative strides.
Here is the beginning of a series of artwork that’s been on my mind since 2011. It involves landscapes, surrealism, traveling and the importance of light and color against darkness. My goal is to create enough pieces to have a show – one day, when I’m ready (if not by this year, then 2017 for sure). Anywhere, too, a cafe or online or other means, time will tell. It’s coming along nicely, but I have many more to come. Stay tuned.

Words to act on – my InspiRenaetion:
“To Escape the past, one must let go;
To Escape the present, one must look around her and find Love;
To Escape the future, one must not worry, but accept what is to come.” -Me (1/8/16)
