Fact :: I am piecing together my Oracle Deck, I AM BECOMING. Details now… and posts will come soon @i.am.becoming on Instagram! I also pieced together another layer to Artifact No. 4 – the balloon stuck on paper + my being “stuck” on the piece. There is a lot of intention + a lot of random, somehow combining into this now #collage. Mainly the idea of the humanity… how will we remember ourselves? How will be remembered + how will we be excavated as a species years from now? Who knows.
Fact :: Sometimes I stare at a blank page and wonder what to do with it. Tonight, after a 5 mile jog/walk + no ‘aha’ inspiration, I thought, “ok where am I now and what does it feel like?” It felt like staring into the abyss… inside of a box. So I made a (meta)square first. I am a fan of possibility, and Creation, and allowing what wants to come up to come up… and that is what moved from there. Landscapes. Key to perspective. Thinking outside of the box. The “box” of a blank page. Anything is possible. And, don’t box a Leo like me in. These are the random phrases that popped through as I went along. 💕
Fact :: I really wanted to do another black + white SOMETHING tonight. However, publishing life is a thing. And it takes a lot of time. Plus, I have self-imposed deadlines. So. Until tomorrow… check out a few of the paintings I did for my oracle deck – In black + white! Yay! Feel absolutely SO free to donate toward publishing + get goodies for your support! Also, check out @i.am.becoming for pre-order info on the first edition. Coming so soon… JUNE = READY FOR SHIPMENT! Black + White video with all the cards posted @maieutic.arts on Instagram.
FACT :: It is EARTH DAY 🌏 2018. And, yes, those are post-it notes made from trees… collectively spelling out “Tree.” There are notes + reminders on them, like oxygen, waste, go green, 4/22 = 365, etc. Don’t worry, I will be reusing each and every piece of paper used here to make this random art. ALSO head over to VOID + ARROW for potential entry into a poetry book : In Harmony, the Forest. Entry fees go into production costs + the rest to charity! Now through September 1st!
FACT :: Balloons filled with helium generally move on this planet. This balloon is stuck on paper. Too bad. I am also stuck on finishing this random art. Usually something just floats in… but I got nothing.
FACT :: I like triangles. I like asymmetry – even in sound, always have. I started this piece last night with the idea of fingerprints + magnetics in mind. Kind of toying with my second Oracle Deck design. How this one turned out is an eery reminder of the US dollar + school + The Illuminati. Yep. Well. That’s what can happen with basics, I guess? Also it is officially Taurus season… this random creation was NOT planned to line up that way. Normal life for me.
FACT :: I like circles + lines. I like black + white things. I also like color, and watercolor is my favorite medium to use. I generally have no idea what I am doing, but I create as I go. In art + life.
FACT :: Last night I dreamed of an ant becoming a spider becoming a robot who moved in circles advertising stain cleaning. It was Halloween. It only made sense to do quick stipple drawing… like the ants coming together to form or become bigger versions of themselves. They would. The message from Ant comes from Animal Speak, by Ted Andrews.
