Every so often I do something practical with my artwork. A friend of mine, who is an expert in natural health, is creating a line of skin care products, so I did some work on the label. Remember “Floral Overload”?
Well, I did something along that line for a product which contains marigold (or actually a scientific name for it that I can’t spell). So, here’s the drawing for that:
Which brings me to a dream I had, that sort of illustrates my feeling towards the artworld, now.
I was in an exhibit of cutting edge modern art, and I was painting pictures of lilacs all over the work. I was being filmed as I did this, and the footage of me doing this, was a piece of conceptual art. Go figure.
Well, still my pencils and papers are in limbo, between dwelling places. As an old friend of mine would put it, I’m “jonesing” on lack of creative time. My eyeballs are bulging, and the veins in my forehead are throbbing. So it feels, at least. Recently, I’ve been reading that simple coloring relaxes adults in a way similar to meditation. I miss my coloring!
I also have a long, thoughtful, and hopefully not boring commentary on rainbows to present..but it doesn’t make much sense to present that without the drawing to go with it. Hmmm, well, back to the other subject. My flight from New York.
Digging through old artwork during my move, I came across an old drawing of mine, devoted to the dream of somehow, someday, going to live and succeed in New York. At the time, I thought it was impossible to achieve. However, it did happen. How many people actually have a dream come true? I’m one.
