Low brow/High brow

In an attempt to have family screen time with our almost thirteen year-old daughter,we've been getting TV series such as "Switched at Birth" and " Modern Family" from the library and watching one or two episodes in the evenings after dinner. I have been taking tools and clay home and have been making hand-built pots while I watch. It is soo relaxing !

Show Announcement

Recently, I have been paying much closer attention to my dreams. I record each dream in a notebook, and also exchange dreams in a monthly dream group. I have noticed that by paying deeper attention to the 'soulstream' of my life I am consistently getting more insights. The dreams each have their own little gift for me. At the same time, I have noticed changes in my paintings: The landscapes have disappeared to make room for more abstract color–schemes. The figures are forefront and center with attributes of rocks and crystals floating around them, as keepers of time. Working with dreams has solidified my trust in the well of my unconscious, and in the knowing that what must come forth shall make it's decisive and deliberate appearance to me.

trial and error

For a week I worked on a painting with a large crystal only to realize on Friday that the outcome was vastly different from what I had hoped to see...Happens not too often -luckily. I have no time for trial and error at the moment, which is not good.
Relaxed on Sunday with friends playing with clay.
