15 July 2018 Getting Started (Painting)

Hello to you.  It’s Sunday morning and looks and feels like it’s going to be another scorcher for us.  Last night I put some water on the yard and you can hardly notice.  Aw well.  I know we aren’t alone with this hot summer.

Lots of weird dreams last night and the feeling I get quite often that someone besides the dogs, Kyle and I are in our room.  It was really strong last night.  My heart kind of startled after the lights were out and it sounded like someone walking in front of our floor fan.  There was also the non-tinnitis high pitch noise too I hear sometimes.  It sounds like someone screaming at a pitch too high for human ears.  You know the high pitched noise your t.v. makes sometimes or the sound of a light bulb warming up?  That sound.  It could just be the electronics but I don’t hear it all the time so not sure.  Neither of us slept very well last night.

On a silly note, I woke up in the middle of the night thinking of a song by Exile.  I used to sing to the neighbor girls using a jump rope as a microphone:

Exile – Kiss You All Over (original 1978)

Talk about a walk down memory lane!

This morning Kyle and I got started on our paintings together!  Just the first coats of Naples Yellow for him and Grape Taffy Purple for me.  He seems to have more of an idea of what he’s going to do next than I do lol.  Part of me wants to go primal and just put colored palm prints all over mine!  Honestly,  I’m thinking about doing the woman in the octagon.  It is such an intimidating thing this painting and canvas bit!  It’s so different than just sketching on a notepad or scratch piece of paper.  I am just excited we are finally doing something like this together – going to stay in that part of it and not worry about the rest!

Time to head out and get some chalk time in before it’s too hot.  Lots of love and hugs to you today!  Try something new that brings you joy today!

Kyle and I have been talking about pulling out a couple of blank canvas’s and painting together this weekend.  I’m excited to see what he comes up with!  Sometimes I am intimidated about adding color to my drawings and sketches.  I’ve screwed so many of them up doing that lool.  Anymore when I’m in the midst of “arting” I just say quietly, “God, guide my hands” and hope for the best!

15 June 2018 Rough Night (dreams) and Blessed are the Peacemakers (drawing)

14 June 2018 – took this yesterday afternoon. One of my favorite sights is the sun coming through clouds.

Hello to you.  How are you?  I’m not sure how I’m doing lol.  Last night was really rough.  At about 1020 am I woke up screaming.  I thought I saw something coming down from the ceiling over my head.  Link was like, “PINEAPPLES!”  He doesn’t like it when I get upset.  We all went back to sleep and then around 1053 am I had a waking dream where it was like Kyle was at the end of the bed, I could see his shadow on the living room wall.  He was telling something off and then I heard a voice in my head “turn on the light”, so I did.  Well Kyle and dogs said screw  you Mommy and left the room after being woke up yet again.  Everything was fine until about 6:05 am when I heard a man’s voice that sounded like Kyle on my side of the bed, in my head, not with my ears say, “Because I have something to tell yah.”  This startled me awake especially since Kyle was snoring on the other side of the bed!

Not quite sure what’s going on.  The last time I woke up screaming because I thought something was on the ceiling was a couple of months ago when I was having a cycle.  I’m sure there is some logical explanation for it all.  Have you ever heard someone in your head but not with your ears before?

This morning I saw in the headlines that a man of peace, an journalist from India was shot after leaving his work.  My prayers to all who loved him:

Kashmiri Journalist Shujaat Bukhari, a Voice for Peace, Is Killed

My evening drawing could be for him and all those in the world like him that have tried and are still trying to bring people together in this world:

9Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they will be called children of God.

12 June 2018 Surrealism – A Feeling Too

Hello to you.  How are you doing in your here and now?  I’m feeling like a word that isn’t normally attributed to a state of being, surrealism.   Surrealist art is a lot like my dreams…my life lately.  A vast canvas covered with unrelated images that when strung together somehow make sense.  The world we are sharing right now is very surreal to me most of the time.  So many things that make sense and so many more that don’t all going on at once.  Such a mess!

On the one hand we have President Trump and Kim Jong Un shaking hands – which like Dennis Rodman I’m very pleased about and hope it was genuine (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/trump-kim-summit-trump-says-us-will-end-its-%E2%80%98war-games%E2%80%99-with-south-korea/ar-AAyx0hn?OCID=ansmsnnews11)  and on the other we have ancient trees dying in Africa possibly because of climate change (https://www.popsci.com/baobab-tree-climate-change).  So many extremes all vying for time on the world stage.  No wonder so many people are bipolar and have ADD nowadays!  Up!  Down!  Look here!  Now there!  Forget you saw or heard that!  Now for something completely different!

http://www.theartstory.org/movement-surrealism.htm – good article about this art movement actually is if your curious

Exploring Surrealism with Peter Capaldi | Unlock Art – I found this and had to share.  Peter explaining this art form makes it a little more wonderful to learn about.

 

My chalk drawings from the past couple of days are fading and nothing has come to me to put to the slab or paper.  My thoughts have been murky.  My dreams have been fluid and very little to hold on to and write down in my dream journal.   I am not worried.  I need this rest period.  The veil will open.  The curtains will part and show me things to share.  For now it’s sleep, words, numbers, concepts and may a random picture or two.

Surreal – by Jackie

“Surreal is the distance between the grass and the dew

The random points of light when assembled

That make me and you

Am I walking or am I gliding

In the stitches of space

Or am I just a particle hiding…..”

 

I painted this back in April of this year. Yes, that sparkle is fabric paint I included lol. The purple wisps were inspired by the movie The Arrival. One of the weird images to come out of my “long walk” recently. I’m almost ready to bust out one of the blank canvas we bought and see what comes.

Hugs and positive vibes through the wires!

31 May 2018 Island of the Moon (Drawings) and Traveler (Paul Horn)

Hi there – just a quick note to share my drawings for today.  A friend suggested since the image from the dream I shared was stuck in my head to do a drawing of it.  My drawings here can’t really do justice to illustrate what I experienced but at least it’s out of my head LOL! I like the chalk drawing version.  We are going by Michael’s tomorrow and I plan to pick up some canvas.  I think I want to try to capture this vision in paint and see how that looks.

Spoke to my parents today to wish my Dad a happy birthday – so good to hear both my Dad and Mom’s voices and get caught up.  So grateful and felt so much love talking to them.  Dad was having a good day and was seriously envious of the dessert we were having in his honor – my chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream!

31 May 2018 – Dad loves my chocolate chip cookies. We enjoyed them and some vanilla ice cream in honor of his special day. He was jealous lol!

(look at the image, instead of a person in my drawings, there is an empty chair….I love it when I get lead to wondrous places)

28 May 2018 Watching Over Us (Drawing)

Hi there – just poppin in with the drawing I did this morning.  I wasn’t as brave as I intended initially with coloring it in but I think it came out pretty neat.  A funny story about this one.  Even before I started drawing a bug did a fly by and left three green dots on my paper!  I decided to go ahead and incorporate that bugs “paint” into the drawing.  How is that for organic art?!  LOL!  When I did this one I was thinking about divine beings in the outer realms watching over us down here on Earth.  I guess I was trying to comfort myself away from the sad thoughts I was having about life after Earth the past couple of days.

28 May 2018 – This mornings drawing. Visualizing divine beings watching over us down here on earth.

22 May 2018 Dust, Purple and Blue Cars, Alaskan Hunting and Flowers

Hello to you.  It’s a beautiful, yet very dusty Tuesday morning.   We have metal and glass furniture with electronics on top and near them.  The effort of dusting is pretty much a futile activity at our house lol.  The sun is shining on my desk exposing all the dust particles and I look at it thinking, “have I ever cleaned this house?!”

Funny Facebook Meme from We are Moms Club yesterday:

be there for you, Dishes,  they will literally always be there.

@Adventuresinbliss

I don’t feel very rested this morning.  More busy dreaming.  I only remember a fragment about really fast purple and blue cars that looked like those old El Camino’s but they had closed cabs on the back and were a bit more modernized.  I don’t know why literal cars are popping up in my dreams but they are.  I am thinking these are analogies for what I’m seeing on the political front lately with “people cars.”  I saw Bernie Sanders is talking about a re-election bid yesterday.  Are we talking about this already?!  I saw something that made me sick and I don’t even want to believe they are considering doing this:  https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/may/21/trump-administration-moves-reverse-obama-era-hunti/Trump administration moves to reverse Obama-era hunting restrictions in Alaska.  Is it me, or does it seem like when things aren’t going his way he starts attacking the environment?  Just something I’ve noticed.  I am trying so hard to find the good in this administration and I am coming up bankrupt again after seeing this.  I felt physically ill last night reading about this.  If I lived in Alaska I would be standing in front of the hibernating bears and their cubs.  This seems like such a dishonorable and senseless style of hunting to me.  Is Alaska really that hard up for revenue to consider allowing this?!  There seems to be something wrong with the moral compass in this world unless there are things I just don’t know that make this seem necessary.  Don’t these beings have it hard enough to have to endure even more cruelty from humanity?

18 May 2018 Collage and Low Tide

Hello to you.  I hope this finds you well.  I’ve been very tired the past couple of days and just wanting to sleep.  Kyle thinks it’s probably me just coming down from the past few months of an extreme high.  He’s probably right.  The cycles are very taxing for me and the older I get, the more difficult they can be.  So my little travel buddy Link and I just have been resting as we can and trying to restore the ol’ battery.   My life can be  like the ocean currents with the high and low tides.

The drawing today is a collage of stuff I’ve been watching and thinking about lately…all just floating out there in the collective conscious space.

I am sad to see so many more shootings in this country, the latest in Sante Fe Texas….a 17 year old kid too! (http://abc13.com/10-dead-10-injured-in-shooting-at-santa-fe-high-school/3490869/)!  What is sad for me is these shootings are taking place in homes and schools.  Our kids are supposed to be safe in their homes and at school and they aren’t.  Even with all the new security and open carry laws, it’s just not getting much better.  We keep putting band-aids on top of what the real problems are like allowing so many troubled people access to a tool they can use in an act of passion (not self defense).  A tool they end up using to do something they can’t ever take back.  It’s not just the victims and their families that suffer either, it’s all of us! It is essentially an act of terrorism to go into a public place and shoot people.  Why these types of shootings are not treated at as an act of terrorism I don’t know but that’s what it is.  Now you have a whole bunch of people who are afraid to send their kids to school and go out into public places again.  Every time this kind of shooting happens in this country, it is an act of terrorism.

17 May 2018 Drawing and Dream

Hello to you.  Hope this finds you well today wherever and whenever you are tuning in from.  Feeling gratitude today.  I had a weird dream last night/this morning.  It was about some hotel/hospital where people were going to get plastic surgery.  I saw Prince there and it was like his face was stitched on and it was a white version of himself.  This was the case of many of the people I saw there.  I think this dream was triggered by the CNN show we watched last night, “Video Killed The Radio Star.”  Since it was from the 80’s, they of course mentioned artists like Prince, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.  They talked about how difficult it had been for musical artists of color to break through on MTV.  They have a clip of an interview where David Bowie asked one of the MTV VJ’s why there were so few videos with black artists and he got a bullshit answer.  You could tell by how David responded that he wasn’t falling for it!

David Bowie Criticizes MTV for Not Playing Videos by Black Artists | MTV News

It made my heart ache to think on how many artists I knew and loved from the 80’s like Prince that are no longer here with us!  It’s a tough gig to choose to be a performing artist!  I miss them and am grateful for their contributions to such a big part of my developmental years.

16 May 2018 Is this all just a dream?

Hello to you.  It is Wednesday in my timeline but it feels like Friday already!  Had a fun dream this morning.  I was with an old co-worker from when I was working in Personnel Systems Management for the Air Force.  I bent a piece of metal with my mind and levitated a rose quartz crystal – apparently my right hand was stronger in the dream for such things lol!  My friend was in disbelief at what he had seen, so I repeated it.  I told Kyle this is why I enjoy the dream world so much.  In the dream realm I fly invisible ships, have wings, can just jump and fly out of a tree.  In my dreams I can visit other worlds and as of last night,  bend metal and levitate crystals with my mind!  Way cool!

Speaking of dreams.  Yesterday we “publicked” and went and got the tires on our car rotated and did a Target run for our favorite liquid soap, Dr. Bronners: (https://www.drbronner.com/).  Exciting right?!  Well when we checked out at Target, the clerk named Robbin seemed to be having a day like I mentioned to you, that surreal feeling like nothing is real…like everything is just a dream.  I took her hands in mind to try to reassure her we were all real.  She still was left wondering about reality but a little more grounded I think!  I guess working in a place like Target could put you in that state of mind!  So many nice things that most of us can’t really afford.  We wandered around in there and talked ourselves out everything but absolute essentials.  Not easy!  I’m pretty sure Robbin’s wages don’t allow her to buy much where she works.

Dreamt about some men this morning who looked like they may be from Hawaii or Samoa (been praying for Hawaii a lot lately!).  One of them was playing an instrument that I have come to find out today actually exists!  The Coconut Thumb Piano, Kalimba or a Mbira which actually has origins in Africa:

(Redirected from Thumb piano) The mbira is an African musical instrument consisting of a wooden board (often fitted with a resonator) with attached staggered metal tines, played by holding the instrument in the hands and plucking the tines with the thumbs.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thumb_piano

Origin

It is said that before globalisation, these instruments could only be found in Africa and where African descendants lived. Therefore, the thumb piano we know in the West, called kalimba, is a modernized version of its African ancestors.

Many tribes, all across the continent, have developed their own unique thumb pianos over the centuries. Because the languages and cultures of these tribes vary so much, so do the names and traditions of their instruments.
