​​​Lately most of my time has been allocated to drawing, painting and baking! whilst also working in the film industry from time to time. Drawing is a daily practice, this has been the case for as long as I can remember. These are spontaneous drawings mainly as an exercise to free up creative blocks and for conceptualizing ideas. I have also been exploring the watercolour medium here and there and I guess you could say appreciating the change in process. Some of the techniques I employ in my acrylic painting do so happen to cross over nicely, such as layering and the use of drawing as a foundation. However I do find watercolour to be more of a one shot deal, or at least I use less paint and subsequently less layers of paint. What I have noticed with watercolour is the crystal like shimmer of some of the pigments and the unpredictability has made for some interesting surprises. With more experience I am developing my own painting techniques as I get accustom to the way watercolour goes down on the paper, and the look of the pigment on paper is giving me ideas. Recently I’ve been thinking about going back to my abstract roots. However as we all know plans change as life changes, so time will will tell. 

A poem from the poem zone

I wrote this the other day in bc, I was thinking about the darkness of the times, and conversations I have had with friends and family as well as reflecting on recent events. Regardless of what my position is in terms of politics, social issues and so on, it is evident that beneath the veneer people are going through some hard times. I do hope that this poem reaches out and makes a tiny little difference in your world. 
There’s only one of you

Take care of yourself

Stop punishing 

Stop blaming

Feeling sorry

Stop loathing 

Wake up

Tomorrow

And tell yourself 

I love you

Don’t waste time

It’s not too late

Be courageous 

Give a shit

Love

Forgive

And the let the sun shine in

full circle

seeking the temple

eternal

walking the path

amidst the illusion

reaching oneness

disrupted 

thousandfold

the search continues

forsaken 

nothing

gone like wind

only to return

full circle.

a poem and some pictures from a recent artshow

Lost in the sorrow of a

Reality 

shattered into a million pieces 

while wondering these city sidewalks

that sparkle under the purple rain.

‘deep in contemplation’

some wonderful reminders of a rather rich cinematic Past by Kim Parrent on Instagram as alligetisstatic

while out walking I ran into this useful youthful reminder, ‘let the imagination run wild. ‘

Ocean Tara Ocean Tara…

Mahaloness is a portal to CARE. Here you are welcome to visit, all ages, all walks of life, here there is no discrimination, here there is no judgement, it is a place where I share my authenticity, my art, my poems, my words, and my care. Yes I sometimes get angry, yes I sometimes feel sad, yes sometimes I feel lonely, and yes I do feel despair. Some think I am crazy, some ask what drugs I am on, people will say what they want to say, opinions  and gossip propelled by an ignorance of the Darkness, so it goes, and the world continues to mourn. So be it this will not stop me from doing the work that needs to be done.

Thank you

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.

many places, many faces.

Art has taken me many places. In many places I have met many faces. Many faces have offered many lessons. Many lessons have made me wiser. Wisdom guides me when storms get heavy. Navigating life’s unexpected dangers to calmer waters.

-dedicated to those who have aided in the journey, as my exploring turns to stewardship, woven words and fotos come together in the tapestry if life. An accordion plays softly in the background.

no matter

No matter what the economy says
No matter what the taxes are
No matter what disease we cure
No matter what the herbalist speak
No matter what the disgruntled worker says
No matter how many satellites we send
No matter how much technology we bring
No matter how loud a bullet is
No matter what the war may be
No matter what the division is
No matter what
It doesn’t matter
If we lose this.

dedicated to Lady Pacifica, Mother Earth, and for all of its inhabitants, no matter the classification.
