This weekend. Learning this video tool. Here just seeing how natural morning light turns out (because I love the edge of darkness). What grainy means. Trying to connect small moments. And just showing for no reason other than so something is here. No snow forecast. But snow. The mountains rule. That stray self on the muslin cloth, I have been calling it Life is Heavy. And today maybe I will call it Carry On, has a more positive sense to […]
Yesterday, simply asking myself a lot of questions. Today trying to answer them. But I think answers don’t apply for very long really. Things are always changing. And I, we, are only human and answers, there aren’t any really. Questions are prompts for considering, and answers , well what if they are just coffee breaks ? Just Sweeping. This morning I asked myself, ” …did you have a good sweep?” And what will my future be? What comes next.
What happened here is quite astounding to me. Even after all the history with this process. And that’s exactly what it is for really. To accustom my selves with the unexpected. Without worrying if it fits in. That is to grow in the moment of discovery. Which is often an uncovering. Or maybe more likely a result of seeing through. I will talk now, because I want to let the thoughts that have not yet formed form. joodling I […]
Yesterday’s self. Yesterday has become very handy lately. In naming things. And today a way to reconsider them. I wish I could get back to video, because I need it right now. Still a fog hangs over me. Maybe just remnants of the snow melting. At season’s edge there is confusion as well as relief. And I am feeling all of it. The need to explain is leading me away from a more organized approach to teaching. Moving me back […]
Reaching Back a bit to go forward. I want to talk about drawing a bit, but yes, I have said so much about it before. I once called this cloth Magic Cloth 2. But now, I let the name go, and it remains untitled. I am reconsidering the cloth in the present and I will rename it. Maybe for now, I will go with SPIN. As I said once, way back when, this is not really a wall cloth it’s […]
To begin. From scratch. Let’s call it Skratch. For fun. Nothing wrong with lightness. Play. The first step seems like well, draw something on cloth. But really, let’s go backwards a bit. I think I should talk a little bit about cloth first, for it is the base on which we will work. And then it will be part of how we might continue. And then thread, I need to say a bit about thread. And mark making tools. Right? […]
Sometimes, trying to explain is the most difficult part. There is often what seems like a disconnect between hand and mind. That is the bridge we need to build. And keep in good repair. The truth is in the going. And the value is in the acceptance of of how it might go. The creative act is not outside of you. Art does not create itself. An image does not form of it’s own accord. That is just stupid in […]
