A Surfer’s Journal

When Lady Pacifica calls I go, and when I return I am compelled to channel my experience into a painting, or some kind of creative exploration. Each cycle, each journey is a time to recharge, to reconnect with the rhythm of Planet Earth, far away from the congested cities and competitive frequencies. The ocean is so immense, so powerful, so lively, and unpredictable. When you get lost in thoughts the ocean will remind you that you are not alone. It penetrates your being, thouroughly saturating it to it’s core, a true mystic she whispers in your ear that you are a part of her and to not be afraid. The water bubbles, invigorating your molecules as you swish and drift to her ebbs and flows. Thank you Ocean, Lady Pacifica, Earth Mother and all.

In the works…

   

Ho’okipa, one of my favorite places on Earth gifted me this ’speechless moment’, I simply dissolved into the landscape.

Ho’okipa channeling field art

there’s more to life than meets the eye.

-?

One pitch black night during a new moon I found myself in an open field next to Ho’okipa.

practicing ho’oponopono I visited the location and asked to work their and also to feel the wall, while there I came across an Oman. IMG_3704.JPGthe preexisting muralIMG_3690.JPGThe back of the existing mural caked with murals past, the ever changing face of this building fascinated me, passerbyers may not realize walls such as this have been painted hundreds of times, so it is quite an honour to be in the textural landscape of the big picture.

Once upon a time near Ho’okipa

There is magic and there is work, you cannot have one without the other.

Fotomahaloness -despite the fact art is often undervalued and lacks integrity due to being entrenched in a society that is seemingly attached to favoritism, and popular trends, if it’s not a trend or a cause it is not worth it! My reaction to this is that the work must be done, and just to support this statement, the fotomahaloness below is some of my work, which I call night art, made in pitch black in the middle of a field next to my love, Lady Pacifica. The mural was covered over by Kone 2012 a day later. So why do it? Why do anything? When do we say enough’s enough, when do we say ‘I don’t want to numb myself!’ or accept the mediocre! As long as the world turns and I am here, I will continue to provide my service, whether or not that is deemed as valuable, the one thing I do know is that the art works, it moves, it is kid approved, and there is plenty of more work to do, even when it gets painted over, or shunned, this is alright, it is the cycle of life, thats what drives the process, the reaction to the action, the response to the absurdity, and on it goes again and again. And my art on a bus, magical, magic which no one can take away from me, for it is not for anyone to own.

Food for the heart and the soul

The Mahaloness painting is coming along, and what would art process be without some key ingredients: the sky being one, colorful flowers, books, coffee from my favorite coffee shopThe Roasterie, and good ole comfort food, of course*. The sky is key becuase working so close to the canvas can cause eyes to strain, I often take a moment to step outside and look up, and as far up as is possible. As for food I like eggs, they are quick and easy and offer yet another kind of canvas to nourish the creative zeal.
*there are some additional key ingredients and medicines that offer good headspace, heartspace that put me into a healthy creative mindset, this list will be expanded upon.
