yesterday was my birthday. happy birthday to me. sometimes i do not recognise what i see in the mirror. but then, a mirror is not a reflection of one's identity either. so .....
i called this painting SOME FISH CAN FLY, SOME CANNOT because some fish can fly and some cannot.
This is one of my favourite pieces. It is is a phantasy, both beautiful and symbolic, and has a powerful dreamlike quality about it that illustrates a deep truth about what it is to be human and to live together on this planet.
The fish are like flowers, they both have wings. Or not.
SOME FISH CAN FLY, SOME CANNOT is for sale now. (oil and collage - 40 x 60 cms - free shipping - AU$380 - PAYPAL works well for me.
hmmmmm. I like doodling,
I doodle a lot. doodling, I think, is a really creative way of creating art. There is no over-thinking at work, just the delicate pleasure of letting pen or pencil (or ipen, today) dance freely, and enjoy the succulence of what comes to life.
Today's doodle is of the little monster, sweet and gentle (most of the time) that won't let me sleep when I need to.
I call it ..... INSOMNIA.
And I don't like it much.
