When I’m home, mostly in my tiny studio, there is always music playing. A variety of “genres” sometimes in languages I can’t understand – doesn’t matter. If my inner Self, Spirit, Soul, what ever you want to call it, if it dances I listen. Because I like my music loud, I use a headset. The less I hear of the outside world the better.
The playlist below is my current accompaniment.
Money is one of the most dangerous addictions, maybe more so than any substance ingested, injected, snorted and or smoked. The people addicted are willing to risk even the very planet that sustains us. Their need for money and its temporary power a definite sickness. It’s most unfortunate that for centuries the masses have been ruled by such addicts.
This tonald dump presidency is full of junkies. The link below describes what portion of our endangered planet they’re willing to destroy next.
I always thought crows were scavengers until one day on a freeway on-ramp I saw a crow dive bombing into a bush. On the third dive a squirrel shitting bricks darted out from the plant almost onto the road. Traffic was slow enough to see this bit of action but not slow enough to witness the outcome. This happened a few years ago.
Today, on the way to my job heading down the street just a block from where I live stood this crow picking at the ground. I had my eye on it as I drove towards it and as I passed noticed it was eating a fresh kill. A squirrel.
I circled the block pulled up rolled down my window and recorded the short video below.
Using Photoshop I am trying to figure out what I’m going to paint on the canvas (16″x 20″). I’m not worried about it looking good, just want to be certain of what I’ll be painting. I have a few possibilities in mind. Here’s one, an owl with its wings a bit extended. There were two requests. An owl and purple. I made the background purple in this doodle just to check it out – and I kinda like it, but I’ll see it stays.
A dear friend of mine has commissioned me to paint an owl on canvas. Her birthday is coming up, next week. SO I have seven days to complete this piece. First, I’ll play around with the composition in photoshop. Here is the start. 🙂
