Brave Buffalo Hearts

it seems i always come back to buffalo.....when i am ready to paint, after creating some glass art, because at this point glass art almost always comes first....so yah, when i am ready to paint and i play with this and i play with that, and over paint and scrape and try to make something specific...for example the erotic show and the heart show i spoke of in an earlier post...sometimes i struggle when i arrive with a plan....

 with these pieces all 3 came together fairly quickly after i brought out my buffalo imagery.....

so, i guess there's a message there for me......

i still love buffalo........

Divine Hearts

i believe in divinity, my mom used to make divinity fudge!! but that's not what i'm referring to....i am talking about divinity in our own humble selves and in our lovers and friends, even though it is hard to see sometimes in our complex human relationships......this is the journey of the spirit.....
these are 2 tiny wall gems...only 3" x 4"...... reflecting some of my thoughts on this......namaste.....did you know that when you say namaste you are saying "the divine in me honours the divine in you"?...i think that is beautiful.....i love the word...it is used as a greeting in india....sweet.....namaste friends.....

Variations on a Theme: Love

ok, so, you'd think i'd know by now that when you go into your creative world intent on creating some certain something that the muse is not necessarily there waiting for you.....but still i do this....big plans....ha ha....anyway, there is an amazing art show at Gabriola Artworks in Feb.....this annual show is called the "Erotica" show....and it is usually waaaay out there with great, uninhibited, even shocking!!! artworks in all mediums.....  i have NEVER put a piece of art in this show.....i've been asked, but just never felt that particular muse calling to me.....
at the same time i have been asked to be part of a show at The Van Dop Gallery ......this is a little different.....the show is called "Heart to Heart".....as you can see, i am more inspired by the heart right now.....this does not mean that erotica is not relevant in my life, just that when i went to create art this week it was love and heart that wanted expression....i do think there is a chance that some erotica will emerge from my studio, it's just taking it's time...
