Into the Fog

I took this on my way back from Sarnia this past time. Sometimes life is like that...you don't know exactly what is in store for you right around the corner. But, that is what makes life exciting, right?

I want to live my life the way I want to and to be brave. I want to stride toward the fog with the hope that everything will work out just fine, and life will be even more beautiful than ever.

I don't have to be afraid, and I don't have to live my life based on the experiences of others. This is my life. These are my choices. Whether they are right or wrong, they are mine.

The end.

So Much Fun!

Another favorite quote from Facebook:
"Okay so I love you more than gangsta kittens wearing sun glasses and little kitten boots."

You know who you are if I quoted you...

So, Canada. I gotta tell you, I have to blame my blasphemous mispronunciation of karate on being so imbued in an alternate state of mind. That's all I'm saying on the matter.

So, Canada. Hung out with the awesome Iaian Greenson for a few days, including two afternoons in his studio making some art. Did some art supply trades and created a couple teeny tiny pen and ink drawings. Looking forward to more days like those. And finally at the gallery show on Friday night. We double teamed the photo taking for the gallery's records.

Made a couple of little 6" x 6" works on paper with pen and ink, nail polish and glitter...and art pens. Loved it. This one is called 420+714=1112. Well, more like 1111 and 1112, but who's counting. Artists actually can do math, but they make it their own sometimes.

So, Canada. Yeah...I miss you already.

Here We Go Again!

Dark & Lovely triptych - acrylic mixed media - overall 36" x 36"

Fire On The Lake II - acrylic mixed media - 36" x 18"

Taking off to Canada again...hey, passports cost a lot of money, right? I'm putting mine to use. I remember when you barely needed to stop at the border. They were just like hey whatever...wave and smile.

And I have the added pleasure of customs. It was not so bad when I looked like a lost lady with paintings and a list with names and prices scribbled on it. Now that I know what I am in for it ought to be easier, right? I will have my form filled out and my receipt ready for the gallery. It will be rad.
