Please do not disturb the artist when she is dreaming... her eyes may be open and she may even look like she is awake and in your world , but deep inside the cogs are turning.. a thing is being born - a great and precious and beautiful thing. She needs all of her to do this.

frieze art fair. hugely inspiring. took lumin. he thought it was brilliant. the most beautiful works were simple and spontaneous feeling. giant flowers. golden prismatic orb. wall of butterflies... small round dog chew version of boba fett (Haim Stienbach)... contemporary art at it's best, bringing childish delight and wonder for the world out in us. the golden orb by ollafur elliason won the day for me.
(Obviously there was a lot of sludge there too.)

The Gift

Completion. Its always a tentative feeling... sometimes it still has another stage... its just resting. This time the kiss. Haven't painted for maybe 6 weeks or more. Been creating in other ways but not the bliss of colour on colour hands and heart in the mix. Such a deep peace comes then. Letting go of all the former layers of meaning to allow the piece to rest in beauty. Thinking of the people it is for - seeing my demons and letting them go - letting them be right...
Love will have it's way.
