random thoughts

I often think of myself as strange. I observe the people coming into my life, and the people going. I practice being in the moment because the past is done, and the future is zombies, neither one defining me, nor who I am. I have been practicing the art of presence, Being present, opening up, not so much an open book, more open to the little things that remind me that I am here, loved, and loving. For instance my little rabbit friend, Hectar, who does not judge me, nor shoot projections my way, he is just Hectar, he feels safe and trusts me, day in, day out, a constant reminder that love has no bounds, it does not change, even if everything else does when time has it’s way.

My freedom is my art, my art is my heart and soul.

Art stops me dead in my tracks. (painting: the radiant dali on cardboard from art deliveries, full circle. 

Now a hält minimotion featuring BC and stages of some watercolours I have been working on last couple weeks.

‘​Bee to a Flower’

​Painting is….my life, my heart, my spirit.

Life colours our hearts. I do what I can, sometimes it doesn’t seem like enough. Sometimes I take a walk to ease the anxiety that chases me down, looking up top the sky, it’s soft colour palette gentles the mind. I do what I can to make the memories fade, the ones that broke my spirit, hurt my heart and left me in shame. Slowly it fades, the river flows by, a bird effortlessly glides and a friend chases a friend on a Lime down the lane.

dream within a dream 

Is this life but a dream within a dream

Wondering

What does it all mean

Walking down endless city sidewalks 

sparkling like diamonds

Alone in a city of a million

The smell of lilacs 

overwhelms the illusion

That fills our lives 

And holds us back

From being who we truly are 

Push on my good friends

Push on

For the sun shall shine again 

And for a brief moment time will stand still

Take it in with a grin

And thank your lucky stars

I was born year of the Rabbit, makes sense this furry friend hangs out just outside my studio window, this is Pedro.IMG_3310.JPG

Currently I am working on a Tibetan inspired White Tara for a client, I have been working way at her for a few months, I have a deep respect for Tibetan Art and my intent is to ensure good vibrations and enjoyment to the patron for years to come.IMG_3309.JPG

nature moments…I enjoy long thoughts on a beach, this is just North of Victoria BC, it is very easy to get in rhythm with this place. Lady Pacifica always refreshes my spirit when I am near her. IMG_3307.JPG

This is a document of a small section of my ever changing studio environment, where no medium is safe.IMG_3308.JPGI work for her, she really appreciates my service.

Wearable Rabbit Mahaloness

I make wearable art, I do not really believe that their isn’t anything that isn’t paintable, you just do it and have faith it will work out. It doesn’t always, and truthfully it is that component of the journey I learned the most from and benefit from. I don’t make a lot of these waearbles, keeps them rare and unique, and I am okay with that. The world loves art, I get it out there however I can. You can always inquire with me if you like this stuff and you are curious as to how you too can wear my art, made through love and Mahaloness.
Note: completely washable, bomber and quality craftsmanship, automatic!
