Sweet Surrender...

... so this is the piece i created for the Distorted Disney show.. was super fun and indulgent :)

actually i showed the piece below.. where i omitted one little detail..  wasn't sure if i was ready to take it there.. lol.

..i more so... contorted.. than distorted..  but i knew from the beginning that i wanted to create a piece that was literally twisted, but figuratively open.

hope you enjoy:)

rapture. the title of this piece is purely coincidental..

i was going to leave it as untitled for the time being.. i knew what this piece represented to me.. just couldn't think of the right word(s).. that visually complemented the feeling.

and then.. all this talk about rapture.. being today.. i looked up the definition.. and one interpretation of it.. encompassed it.

rapture [rap-cher]: the act of transporting a person from one sphere of existence to another. (for me, emotionally)

yes... and inspired while listening to Comptine d'un Autre Été by Yann Tierson to transfer this onto a candle.... hmmm

rays of sun..

... clouds of grey.
more hours in a day.

sets what may..
in the stillness of the night..
dare not obey.

every which way..
my heart leads mind astray.. my soul to play.

Wednesday, April 06, 2011 art may not take me any where financially..  not that i really care that it does.. but it takes me to great heights emotionally... mentally.... soulfully..  and that growth is priceless.

..even more so when i've related to another human being ..
i love what i do. and i do it for me. and for you. i really do hope you enjoy it :)
art is love.. and i want to share it with the world.
it needs it.

a lil' something....


a little personal project i am working on.... well.. everything i do is pretty personal. :)

Sunday, April 03, 2011

as simple as...

as simple as air..
as simple as the breeze
to wisp away your fears...

as simple as a hi..
as simple as a smile..
as simple as love...
to flutter your heart for miles and miles..

as simple as today.
as simple as now.
as simple as this moment. still and just allow.

as simple as you
as simple as me.
as is life... simple as it should be.

just a simple jane
in search of soul
and lack of feign...

of love.
of shine..
of an ethereal energy so sublime.

show me you are real.
raw.. to the pulp..
drip. peel.. slowly peel..
to the tender core concealed.

trust. believe.
seek.. be free..
of yourself..
and soar... soar.. so... high

...breath love..... sigh.

...oh hey...hi :)
