when unkind, unwind

I spent my days with a woman unkind, it left me gutted and with a heart unkind. I am going to go to Mexico to start again, going to ride them green waves, drink coconut water and take my chances on the big wet plane. -an anonymous surfer/traveller/artist/maybe writer left written on a roll of toilet paper in a baño in Mexico, 2016

 

Life shows up when it wants, and how it wants. The chaos gets intense, hold on. If you can ride it out and stay calm in thee fury, you will make it. Be prepared for anything. The mind being a powerful tool, can also fool, and easily throw you onto another path. That’s ok, it happens to everyone, we all have stories to tell. These events shape our lives, however is it not so that shapes are just an illusion. Peel away the layers of perceived self, and there is a fragile thing called life, here one moment gone the next without your knowing, or controlling. To ridicule another by projecting past mistakes onto them is the antithesis to kindness. The only way to forgive is to let those wounds heal in their own time. The path to kindness is right under your feet, but do be aware of smoke and mirrors. For in the shadows are obstacles that have defeated even the best of human.

Mexico

Mexican Reverie c.2009  In the early days I was drawn to the abstract expressive, it really depends on the environment and is definitely a painting style that requires a proper studio, I left as much paint on the house I rented as I did on canvases

back when, live art, no sleep, grizzly bear, tutus, and unwavering commitment

Presently…

I have been working on new paintings, experiencing personal transformations, while also take care of my elders.

No matter what I write here, it will be the truth of that moment, even if I want to hide the things that don’t appear so Mahaloness… everything has its beauty, the good, the bad, the ugly, there is nothing to hide, nothing to feel ashamed of, because at the end of the day I am just like you, human, here to make mistakes, and occasionally  miracles. There is an old saying, countless mistakes makes something beautiful.

Sixth Cents

Yesterday I took part in an art battle. It was a in interesting time, my theme, the sixth sense, which quite frankly we don’t know a lot about, and the actual few that do are rare indeed. That said I think I was a kid I was in perpetual sixth sense, all the time, letting things slide off and always in a world that I truly created as opposed to the one I am forced to accept as an adult, and by that I mean the daily opinion survey and freedom less choice, partly due to the times of being a slave to the man. So what does it all mean, I don’t know, I do know that I want to live my life doing what it is I love, while working the occasional job to keep it going when the art I create doesn’t quite support me. I have always maintained that hard work pays off, as I get older I am not so sure if that’s true, I am starting to think that there is benefit to going back to a cold like mentality, a time when corruption wasn’t even a word I knew, let alone heard about, the only thing that mattered was making sure to take in as much as I could, have as much fun as possible, and soak in each and every moment, and run free with my friend curiosity.
FotoMahaloness last nights battle scene the chair and the table were back alleyway finds, perfect for the night ahead. Harold and Darcy rocked the show, gracefully of course, and art history was again made here in Calgary.

Battle!

Yet another fierce art battle tonite at the gorilla room, well not really fierce, in all actuality it was a gem of a night, one for the record books. 2 and a half hours, three themes (science/progress, the girl who likes the other guy, and angel). There was a great turn out, paint and sparks were flying, the magic flowed. The name of the game, have fun, make art, love life. Myself and all the artists in the house finished up the work and a packed room modestly bid away for the the priceless experience. I dedicate tonite to Spacebabe, you rock my world.
