Missing space


Sometimes I miss something... This is my old studio. I do not miss Arizona, but I miss my old studio.

Breaking glass

Tomorrow we are breaking down the glass studio. I have been down there since March and it's time. It's $230 a month and it's been great but time to down size. I did rent a new storage space today for $50 a month. But it will be to keep boxes and studio furniture. And anything else that clutters the house too much. It will also help my brain focus on the task at hand of staging the house to sell. Plus whatever is going to be sold after we move by my friend Peggy.

I have been doing oil paintings a little. I was really inspired in Portland. I keep forgetting I am not a realistic painter. I kinda hate it. For my own work I prefer a looser style. Funny how one forgets the obvious. I also have been thinking of finding a life coach or get my astrological chart done. I need some guidance. Sigh, so much to do....

Drawing & Painting

I've been painting and it feels great! Scott is so supportive. The house is overflowing with chores, but I can't get to them. If I pick up everything, I won't be left with any energy to paint.

My new fantasy is building a barn with living quarters in the farmlands of Portland. I want to paint LARGE. I want ample space to create. I am tired of living in suburban neighborhoods with teeny rooms for a studio.

While I paint, I relive the moment my dad told me he threw my mothers ring into the water. Strange to end a marriage while marrying the sea.

Special All Soul's Greetings

To mark All Soul's Night I took a ride with Baba, in her black swan, to the Isle of the Dead and met the Queen of the Serpents who guards the entrance to the underworld. I took a small vile of pure Castalian Water, collected at Delphi and we drank to creativity. The Serpent has blessed all travellers on the Soul Food Silk Way.

Dream Seeds

The 'Fertility Goddess' or 'Mother Goddess' is a more complex image than most people think. She is not only the Mother Goddess who commands fertility, or the Lady of the Beasts who governs animals and all wild nature, or the frightening Mother Terrible but a composite image with traits accumulated from both the pre-agricultural and agricultural eras - Maria Gimbutus

In the Northern Hemisphere there were traditionally fertility ceremonies during the latter part of October. To mark this period le Enchanteur is offering dream seeds for travellers to plant, nurture and use to identify their creative dreams.
