Creating these drawings/collages/mix-tapes/ dance charts of color in motion
is keeping me A/LIVE.
My ART HAND/ right hand/ is a reluctant bystander and gasps
at the wild renderings of my  WILD CHILD/left/OPPOSITE hand.
I can actually “feel” my brain heat up as I work.

X

I walk every day to/through Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary, an Elysian field,
only a few blocks from my studio.
My English Springer, Jaspar Obi, accompanies me.
We walk or x-ski or bike depending on the season and what reconstructive surgery I emerged from!
This spring/summer it is my ART HAND this time,
so no biking or kayaking…
There is rarely any people walking through the fields of wild flowers, pasture and trees.
Solitude.
Meditative.
Solace.
Multitudes of birds swoop and sing.

X

The American Goldfinch is a favorite of mine
– its bright yellow jewel color dancing/soaring through Minnesota’s clear blue summer sky
+ through the fresh green foliage = JOY!

X

Now, the fireflies are flickering beginning at dusk!
Magical- like  celestial stars hovering above the pasture.
There are no street lights, so I place blinking red safety lights on Jaspar
and I wear a blinking head lamp.
The rhythms of disparate flickering lights creates its own improvisational LIGHT BLINK song…

Surprising.

x

Fascinating.

Beautiful.
