nature calls 

​First a visual poem. 

and now a poem inspired by Pablo Neruda, as reflected in the first line…

Today I can write the saddest lines. I can write about a heart that was crushed as the ice I walk on along the rivers edge. I can write about the loneliness that filled the void, and of the ghostly calls I hear at night. Inside a vision, a fire rages, thought to be out of control. Isn’t it interesting that a forest can be seen as a majestic thing of beauty and also be fuel to a fire. A call from the wild pulls my attention into the present moment. I appreciate the stillness. Nature heals, cleansing my soul.

Paintings I have been working on during quarantine, quarantine art, which is still ongoing… My main duty at the moment is to take care of my elders. In being here I  sense that my heart is indeed just fine.

My family, the people who made me, raised me, and cared for me. Now I return the deeds, full circle, reciprocity.

 

Nature calls… hälts minomotion featuring the call to the wild, I do a lot of research yes, both with technology and the internet/books, etc. as well as going to the natural world for lessons. It is important to get a feel of the subject matter I am working on.

reflection 

Been in a little window of reflection, looking inwards, to find some peace of mind and let this beautiful land sink deep into the psyche. Life’s been busy, so I will take this time to appreciate the fact I am here to appreciate it. I also wanted to say thank you to all the folks who have supported my art over the years, it’s been a journey. Here’s to brighter days. 

📽 new minimotion ‘SLO mo’ with soundscape ‘you’re awesome’ featuring footage from a recent paint sesh, a little window into my world, I always feel like time dissolves when I am in the creative zone, the helmet at the beginning is a project I just completed, a skeleton helmet airbrush art for an Olympic hopeful, more on that soon.

This is a beautiful place I like to come think and dream up new ideas

📽 new minimotion mini nature doc called ‘hiatus’ with soundscape ‘sans Daivd Attenborough’ featuring footage documented during late summer and fall around Lake Windermere, and a simple animation of my painting WIP ‘SLO’ 

a very special project under wraps, I will be sharing this with you very soon


Flashback 2014 and a good friend, Gord, dropped off his old rig helmet and asked me to give it a punk rock dog, in memory of his buddhy ‘snorkel’ who he brought up to Canada from Belize, I had a lot of fun with it, including incorporating the helmet shapes into the the art, this was my first helmet project and would not be the last……

the search

Searching for answers

for the heartache and pain
wondering what lessons have I not yet learned

inner wisdom 

helps to illuminate state 

and Ho’oponopono

to help me get back up with grace. 

I love you

I am sorry

Please forgive me

Thank you.
