Creator

Began a new project just recently, a mural installation called “Creator’ based on a vision that sparked my imagination. The process is a lot of work, a lot of hustle and bustle, late nights, mixing paints, drawing, cleaning, running, music, drink water, look, step back, never look back, eat, drink, spray, brush, clean, sleep when the legs turn to jello…just one more session, okay and maybe another. This is the thing that makes me happy, I put a lot of care an attention into my murals, some take 3 months to do, some a day or two, it just all depends on mood, constitution, atmosphere, nerve, intuition, flow, and juice. When these elements are aligned it is magic in its purest form, and so far this project is all of the above. It is dedicated to a friend named Scotty who moved onto the next life and whose words of encouragement helped me to carry on, Eddie and Clyde Aikau (so inspiring), all other surfers and ocean lovers, and to people of Earth, as we all are here because Creator, who ever that is to you, made this existence and this planet, and the Cosmos and what a tremendous gift it is to be able to be a part of it all. Many thanks to New Age Calgary, Rebecca, Nicole, my family, Yvan, John, Guy, Mark, Leigh (who lent a projector, very cool and fun), Sunnyside Art Supply, the Roasterie, Sunnyside Market and all the folks who have contributed in one way or another, couldn’t do it without your help, love, food, coffee, smile, hug, laugh, thumbs up, and positivity. More coming soon my friends, if there is any questions or comments please let me know and I will do my best to get back to you. Until than I have a few more sessions on this beauty, and I am excited to say that I am making a movie which I will hopefully be completed sometime in March, I will post more on that soon. I leave you with some pictures and a few more words.

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.
