impressions


We are remembered for our deeds, actions, and impressions we leave to others....do we remember specific events or a general feeling......?

two variations on the same theme......



Two variations on the same theme.......the one at the bottom is one of the overprint layers which I printed as an individual image........

charm.


This one is 3 layers.....I started with yellow to establish a ground.  Then I added the red underlayer to bring out elements I saw in the yellow layer.  The third layer was the figure.  I had intended to place the figure on the other side of the image but made a "mistake" - not sure if it is better this way but I kind of like it.

This is the poem I wrote last night..........

When I was five
I said to  myself
What does it mean to be five
Then I ran outside and pretended

I cannot rememeber what I pretended
But I am pretty sure it was fun
And there were other kids
Who pretended with me

Oh yeah now I remember
I was a lion
We played born free
Which was a movie about lions

One guy wanted to be the top lion
Who was a girl lion
I did not get the irony of this then
I was just five

So when I was five
I played being a lion
But also thought about the ramifications
Of pretending

So I kind of missed out being a lion totally
I was only partly a lion
The other part was me
Thinking about why I was a lion

Now I am in my bedroom
Trying to remember
If any of this is real
Or just something that seems like a cool poem

That I can write down
Before I forget it
After thinking it sounded pretty good
When I was five

Or when I was five did I know I would write this
When I was five dozens of times over
Thinking of the moment
When I was no longer a lion

When I was five
I wished I was in space
I wished I was in space

And I was.

Changes..........

Changes

Before your eyes
Dark changes above

Speaking of alcohol
Departure from the norm

Punitive damages incorporated in disaster relief
Foundation of romantic inquiries

Three doors presented to a companion
Seeking justice and peaceful resolution

To crimes yet committed
For justice for all

Here in the book of changes
She is remorseful and humble

Here I will change for you
Into a frock gentle and pleasing

Hold my hand through winters travails
Where we will change together

And we will change together
For we are one.

interaction........


did an art event in White Plains yesterday at my cousins church.......I did not know how people would react to my work but in general they found things they liked.  I also did a demo of the process which I think helps start a conversation about how the work is created at any rate.  A few made their own prints which I think added to the participation of the piece........

Ventriloquist........


Just found out I will be doing a printmaking event at the 4Heads art fair on Governors Island this September.......I will post more as it comes up.

Today I started with the figure of the woman.....I think this looks like a ventriloquist....with a very unusual dummy............

Ice Age

 Todays print...........here I did 3 layers.......first yellow..then overprinted soft reds in 2 layers to create the depth in this piece

This painting has been a while in the making.  I used a palate knife and one color to create this work.  It is aproximately 1 meter high by 2 meters long....I call it Ice Age..........

Radiation..........


Radiant Energy...........we are essentially energy and our human form is derived from it.  We send out waves of that energy into the conscious sphere which is eminated by the essential energy.......At least that is what I see going on in this image...........
