Good Bye Blunk Residency....

The last few days here have been sunny and H-O-T (just like the first few days were when I arrived in Feb.), forming a cold/storm sandwich, which kept me inside creating, but now its spring I can hang out in isolation, painting naked in a garden surrounded by humming birds...not bad for my last day...snuck inside for one last shot with the Blunk sculptures I have been living with every day...It's been so great up here...I worked on slowing time down by being as consciously aware as possible, so to all those people who told me it would go by real fast, all I can say is: I didn't even get here yet!

Virtual Open Studio 3 -Oil Paintings

Virtual Open Studio 2.5 -Calligraphy continued

These are the last pieces I made at the Residency, working on top of antique musical scores, and a print I made of my favorite Olmec Kuntz Axe...have to ship out of Inverness to the next nomadic art adventure (Bali!)

On this first day of SPRING I hereby release my digital short "The Pixel Sutra" into the virtual/non-virtual universe. May it have a long, healthy, and inspiring life!
(25 minutes run time, Thanks for watching)

VIRTUAL OPEN STUDIO 1 -left hand/right hand drawings-

I like to paint on my body my cosmic script. It has been an evolution to try to paint my right arm with my left hand (I am right handed). So I took up a project recently to develop my brain connections to my left hand.

In India it's called "Swara Yoga" when one learns to balance the left nostril "Ida" (moon/female/right brain/creativity) with the right nostril "pingala" (sun/male/left brain/logic), and then automatically the central sushumna nadi (third eye) is activated.

So I hold a pen in each hand, and simultaneously draw, letting each hand mirror the other. Here are some early sketches, and then more developed work towards the bottom. I have noticed that the left hand is now more "conscious" when I am painting on the right side of my body...

(These are all archival pen on paper)
