When you’re in the muck you can only see muck. If you somehow manage to float above it, you still see the muck but you see it from a different perspective. And you see other things too. That’s the consolation of philosophy.

David Cronenberg

I remember as a kid having a balloon and accidentally letting the string go and watching it just float off and into the sky until it disappeared. And there’s something about that, even, that feels very much like what life is, you know, that it’s fleeting, and it’s temporal.

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.

It’s been awhile. The girls are back in school and I am back in the studio.  Sigh…it feels good. I think that they would agree, structure is good after a two  month free for all.  They are loving school as much as I am loving painting. I am also working on two portraits that are coming along nicely.
It really is nice to be back. Thanks for your on going love and support.  I am still waiting for  answers regarding health but I am trying to put that aside and just enjoy right now.

I first thought of the idea for this painting  a little while back when I was braiding my 10 year old’s hair. She requested that I give her one braid instead of two.  It dawned on me that she felt that one braid was more grown up than two braids and  since that day, she wears one braid. I wanted to paint her in braids,  older that she is now. Hanging on, I guess,  to this part of her as a little girl.

When I started the actual painting, the word camouflage keep circling me head. I had this one scrap of origami paper that was black with brightly coloured flowers and it reminded me of a botanical  with a black background.  I have been noticing this a lot in fashion, I think inspired by Downton Abbey and have wanted to use it in a painting.   I was thinking about how teenagers never like to be singled out but at the same time are exploring their individualism. Her botanical dress is camouflaged by the botanical background she blends in  to it but also  emerges from it.  She is figuring out who she is. It is on her terms when she decides to become the background  or when she wants to stand apart from it.  It is so important for it to be on her terms. This is not easy for a control freak like myself and I must remind myself daily to stand back (but only at arms length  because she does still reachs for me.)

The only thing is, her limbs are getting so long  that I seem to be moving farther and farther away at a faster pace than I’d like.

My heart is aching a little as I write this.

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.

 

I can really relate to this right now.  Just trying new things. Staying inspired. Working through it.  Not sure where it is going but must keep making marks.
