Billy Was Born Dead

Billy Was Born Dead

Billy was born dead. Fleshy cord, tight – blue, or purple.   No cries. “The baby is dead. I’m sorry.” “No, the baby will live.” A fact. The baby grew; the baby loved. The love died, but Billy lived. “I’m not afraid to die,” he said. “I’ve already done it once.”

Today I saw a dead cat on the side of the road + I was sadish. I found a dead dragonfly and thought it was cool. So I gave it to Sui. On the way home, I said some prayerful thoughts for the dead cat and found another dragonfly in the road.  I put it in my purse to give to Sui in the morning but when I got back to my room + put it down on the desk its legs moved.  So it's not completely dead yet.  Suddenly I felt badly.  And a little creeped out. I covered it with a hat.  I figure it is just dying + having spasms. But now I can't help but think... What's the difference between Sui using dead dragonflies in art + someone using dead cats? Sort o

I made a painting. I think I have no color sense. My paintings are boring + predictable at least as far as color goes. The assignment is a vertical landscape with a reaction to the philosophy.  I painted three vertical pages with the bottom 3/4 land + all the rest sky.  In the sky there is a face upturned. I'm trying to show my preference for believing in the strength of spirituality. I still think the colors are boring I am going to run a white drip vertically up the sky to show the rising of a soul or some such idea. Maybe it's naive to believe in an afterlife and maybe we do cease to exist when we die.  But even if that's so, what's th

The Great Scribble in the Sky

The Great Scribble in the Sky

Cy Twombly passed away on Tuesday. If you aren't familiar with him or his work then I do recommend checking it out.  He's one of my absolute favorite artists and if you take a gander at a few of his works you will probably see why I like him so much.  Some of his work in in the MOMA and I had the chance to see it in person when I was there.  I was just smitten. The way he works and the meaning in his work (which really, is about as meaningful as I consider my work) just excites the crap out of me. When I make my scribbles there isn't some lofty purpose to it.  It really is just the act or mark making and the ability I have to leave somethin

I've been looking at my old figure paintings - you know, the weird ones. :thumb75510632::thumb75510802::thumb75688679::thumb55489335::thumb55489472: I'd really like to do more of those but I need a wall to work on.  I might need to build a wall.

Don’t know why I’ve never found this account... I’ve not been very active on DA for a while but I feel I should have definitely come across this before XD I’m in the middle of uni work just now but I’ll definitely be back to browse your gallery and see things better than my 5 minute break I gave myself right now ^^;
