the fire 

I held her in my arms

We spun in dance 

Lost in the rhythm of a string 

and a piano chord 

Together on the ground 

spinning

Bathed in each other’s beauty 

 Two embers in a fire

burning for an eternity.

We only get this one.

The following three images demonstrate how I use my drawing and paper cut outs to get composition, I do use modern technology as well but this method is tried, true and tested. 

just the ever so slightest adjustment to the garment

At this stage I am respecting my first marks made, before I continue on with the work. This is the stage where my brain switches to 3-D as I bring the subject to life. I will trust my drawings but also let the paint show me what’s possible.

Sometimes things go bassackwards, that’s alright, I appreciate you to the utmost degree. 

hälts hybrid art which features a watercolour called Oaxacan spirit, made in the mysterious land of southern Mexico, this is what I would call a spirit document.

Fire in the sky

The fire in the sky
burns bright
the fire in my belly
burns like a stove
and no one can take that away
as I see this journey through.

Word of the day: Vigor

Vigor is the internal fire building tools, it is the throttle to the soul, it turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. Nowness is poignant to creating epic work. It is easy to say a word or think a thought and let it be a thought, when you stoke a thought with heart fire power the wheels are set in motion and the work becomes play, where doubt has no say, for a thought fueled by heart equals epic work. No matter where you are, the location is irrelevant, Mahaloness is everywhere every which way, and elsewhere. Next entry I heart think I will get into dreamtime work, a place of limitless possibility and a sanctuary of untold treasure. Mahaloness
