Patio Plants…………drawing momentum

 

I have been having allot of fun this summer doing drawings, daily, great to feel the momentum.  This is from the patio plants I’ve finally got growing well at my loft.

‘She is’ from the series: Me + U

 

This drawing has my most favorite lamp as its focus.  I am well known for my talents as a yard sailing magnet, and also, Queen of  curbside finds.   This wonderful lamp was waiting in perfect condition for me to reclaim her from the side of the road, aka, the trash, now many years ago.  I’m always looking for metaphors and so in some ways she represents my reclaiming things about myself and talents that have gotten kicked to the curb, to see anew, and use them.   She has been in every office I have had as a therapist as well and is a totem for healing and creativity for me, She is Goddess.

Sunday morning Journal entry from a ‘yard sale’ junkie

I am a yard sale junkie from way back, i.e. the 60′s. My neighbor Bill Fleming used to say “Hi, how’s the yard sailing” today.  Always find great stuff, or rather I believe great stuff finds me; this could be my life mantra.  Today I found a used perfect condition washer dryer set for $50.00 each, much needed for our Pine Lake Retreat (the old one needed duck tape to shut the door).  I also found these great kid’s toys, totems to me, which I will draw and play with in my art sand tray. Most fun was visiting with the owner’s putting on the yard sale. Oh, I also found some terrific new clothes, which I’ll be wearing in a couple of hours to the Atlanta High Museum. I can’t wait to see Radcliffe Bailey’s exhibit.

“NO, WHY?”
