quest

I acknowledge the ancient ancestors
whose light lit my mortal torch
who made the path I walk
my marks are also their marks
my vision a continuation of their vision
and so I journey on
this torch illuminates the way
thank you dear ancestors
for you helped to make this life
and for this I will carry forward
long into the night.

undulations and a mural called ‘Creator’

Life really does come in undulations, sometims it peaks, sometimes you fly over the falls, sometimes you go deep, and than cycle back to the top.

 

🌀Following a couple days of rest I can begin to plan my next and more than likely last couple sesshins on my latest mural ‘Creator’ which features the 3 jewels of art: consciousness, energy, and the gift of Life. A string of experiences led to this vision, it was sitting in my minds eye for quite sometime and once I found the right wall similar to a waterfall it flowed out of my head beautifully. I always leave room for whimsy, for a mural is a dance, as Cuban friend and muralist once told me, what a gem of wisdom because murals are a lot of work, but when you turn it into a dance it seems you can go on what feels like forever, time falls away, deadlines fall away, pressure falls away, it is just pure creative zealous and a drive thay makes it happen,  along with a few good friends stopping by with music and curisosity, a mice warm hot keal for a special soeone on between sesshins, and people passing by on the street who take the time to send a positive message, that keeps me going too. More to come soon my friends, I am just putting together a timelapse video, that I think is goong to be a lot of fun. Thank you for check it this out. Mahaloness.

Creator

Began a new project just recently, a mural installation called “Creator’ based on a vision that sparked my imagination. The process is a lot of work, a lot of hustle and bustle, late nights, mixing paints, drawing, cleaning, running, music, drink water, look, step back, never look back, eat, drink, spray, brush, clean, sleep when the legs turn to jello…just one more session, okay and maybe another. This is the thing that makes me happy, I put a lot of care an attention into my murals, some take 3 months to do, some a day or two, it just all depends on mood, constitution, atmosphere, nerve, intuition, flow, and juice. When these elements are aligned it is magic in its purest form, and so far this project is all of the above. It is dedicated to a friend named Scotty who moved onto the next life and whose words of encouragement helped me to carry on, Eddie and Clyde Aikau (so inspiring), all other surfers and ocean lovers, and to people of Earth, as we all are here because Creator, who ever that is to you, made this existence and this planet, and the Cosmos and what a tremendous gift it is to be able to be a part of it all. Many thanks to New Age Calgary, Rebecca, Nicole, my family, Yvan, John, Guy, Mark, Leigh (who lent a projector, very cool and fun), Sunnyside Art Supply, the Roasterie, Sunnyside Market and all the folks who have contributed in one way or another, couldn’t do it without your help, love, food, coffee, smile, hug, laugh, thumbs up, and positivity. More coming soon my friends, if there is any questions or comments please let me know and I will do my best to get back to you. Until than I have a few more sessions on this beauty, and I am excited to say that I am making a movie which I will hopefully be completed sometime in March, I will post more on that soon. I leave you with some pictures and a few more words.
