A big day in the studio - and in my life - my birthday! Why do I always find myself on the floor working? For the record, after all these years, I love painting. ❤️ I am most happy playing around and putting together the pieces and making beautiful things. These paintings remind me that I will make it and life can be absolutely magical. We can live through so damn much, and the world can be quite wonderful. #artforlife
Finally getting back to “The Sound of Silence” after 6 long months away from it! This WIP is 36”x36” and will probably end up being 48”x48”. After playing this incredibly moving song by @disturbed - which triggers an explosion of colors & choreography in my brain - it stirs a cornucopia of emotion in me. I now want - no I NEED- to be spending time, fingers dripping in paint, interpreting the dance & feelings onto the canvas.
Keeping my 🤞that my MS fatigue which has been brutal lately and my multiple injuries allow me to clock some time working on it this week. “Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping.
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence.”
Yup, that about says it all.
Still taking in the vibes. Incredibly thankful to all the amazing people that gave straight fire energy to this night.
@_harry_katz_ for hosting the residency.
@harvardandstone For housing.
@thirdcirclevisuals For the feels.
@mooseprints For the vid.
@neburr For the shots
And everybody unmentioned that helped bring the magic.
Let the fire burn with in
Give me some ideas of what to draw next.

Barefoot In My Dreams 48”x48”
I’m headed to dreamland now. It was a wonderful weekend. Thank you to my sweet @sarahhester747 for spending the day with me and being my studio photographer all day. We treated ourselves to see A Star Is Born after a full day of work and wow . . . Such a great movie. I hope you had a great weekend also. Goodnight 😴😴
