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!

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!

Hi there!  How are you doing from where and when you are?  It’s 8:35 am on this Wednesday morning.  I don’t have an appetite this morning and haven’t been sleeping well for several weeks now.  I think it’s how busy I’ve been in the dream realms.  There have been lots of dreams.  So many I can’t keep track of them enough when it comes time to write them down.  Just before I woke up this morning, there was something about an elderly man and some sort of medical procedure that was helping his wife.  There was some liquid – thinking this was inspired by my interest in Keshe Foundation plasma.  The liquid was milky white like the stuff in the batch I have beside my bed.  Just before I woke up he received a call on a digital device from his wife, it was good news.  Wouldn’t it be nice to think that somewhere in the world this was really happening for someone?

Last night before bed I went out and did a silly chalk drawing to add to the mural I’ve got going on our back patio.  At first it was just one eye and then I decided to make a bunch more in the circles.  I’ve been having a little dry spell in my creativity flow….that’s o.k. because my chalks are almost used up except for the colors I don’t use very often lol!  Looking at it this morning, the drawing looks like something Pablo Picasso might have dreamt up!

Thank you for stopping by to visit here whether it was intentional or not.  Knowing my ramblings and scribbles might be a positive point in anyone’s day gives me encouragement to keep at it.  Much love and light to you and yours!

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free,
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain’d,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be asham’d,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.
