It is nice to see paintings come to life, when this happens I know it’s nearly there.

Each one of us is potentially infinite in possibility, with a brain that is yours to own, and yours to feed. The ahara, the food or things we put into ourselves, shapes what we see, how we see things and frequency. Putting these words into action is the test, one which I am becoming increasingly mindful of as I let go of the past. Mahalonessfoto

I have been spending vast amounts of time in the studio. Cosmic comes to mind. There have been solo sesshins, and collaborative efforts including recently with Agent R, fantastic every which way, the paintamentary continues! Creativity is even more enjoyable when there is quality company. Everyday I walk to my studio, I have a show coming up and I want to be as prepared as is possible, that is a wise modus operandi because I know from experience that the work put on does pay off. Everyday I get to walk over my favorite river, the Bow. It is a catch 22, I am sandwiched by a river and a busy road. I might have to start wearing an oxygen mask, the car emissions are outstanding this time of year, bravo cars, thank you very much. Without getting bent out of shape too much, as I do ride in cars and I myself have driven them, I do not want to complain, it is something to ponder though. In my opinion I prefer the smell of gas at the pump than I do the burnt emission that cars produce and I can tell you one more thing, I high five as many of those trees next to the road as they are on the frontline cleaning the air with each inspiration. So good job trees.
Fotomahaloness -recent offspring, paintings are like children they require care and attention, even when you may not be feeling it! Art is work, even with all the talent in the world it requires a lot of intensity, for me, and that requires energy, a good internal fire, working and stoking the fire are two secrets revealed, there is always magic, you have to be working in flow to experience it. Last foto a Great Horned owl that Agent R and myself saw the other day, it saw us first no doubt.
Now back to work!
