In the Margins

In the margins of daily life bits and pieces of unplanned thought bubbles up from the stew of the mind, travel down my arm into my hand and through the pen I’m holding onto any nearby piece of paper. There is a certain pureness, directness to this. Now how to elaborate on these by keeping the directness while clarifying form and intent without the gatekeeper of tidiness (one of those personas of my mind) stuffing the life out of the drawings? Being in the moment with the work seems to help, but I have no magic potion answer for this.

Lost in the Self

Inner spaces, drawing out the internal, mysteries of the mind, emotions and soul intermixed which surface in the external through a small twitch on the face as the persona expresses the façade of self moving through the world. Heck we need the persona: the social armor: the social enabler: the façade is real: it’s just on the surface.

In a Space Beyond Words

Beyond time and words is the the profound quiet of pools of colors saturated. Blues, blue greens, blue-violets rich with substance and nourishment. Ah, the eyes and soul smile alive in the color.
