Past, Present, Future

A painting of the Past, Present and Future. The whimsy girls remind me of archetypes. I have always been interested in the study of Jung. One of the girls represent where I have been in the past – the word that best describes the past is ~ambiguous. While the present word would be ~anxious in various part of my life, I look to the future where I could be ~adventurous.

Wonky Byrd

Art from a ~Journal Jam~ Class with, Effy Wild. The ~Wonky Byrd~ is from, Willowing Arts on YouTube. At ~Journal Jam~ I have been experiencing many of these whimsical ladies. Each lady I sketch and then paint are lovely with their own personality. Their face colors are different, the eyes vary – some are as almonds and others large, dominating the entire face. Hair styles are unique and tiny lips are always very colorful. The ladies are slowly becoming a family of sorts – sisters, cousins, aunts, great aunts and grandmothers. They are taking on a life and place of their own and I enjoy creating them.

Daffodils

I wanted to write about daffodils in the middle of cold
winter nights. My thoughts move to the flower’s symbol
of rebirth and new beginnings. It is also one of the first
perennials to bloom after winter, sometimes through a layer
of snow. It’s Latin name is Narcissus.
I wanted to write about the yellow color it is,
bright as the sun on a clear summer day.
It’s middle trumpet appendage calls to the other flowers,
rise as Spring is almost here.
I still smell my bouquet ignoring the pungent odor as there
is type of clean in there which I can’t ignore. I wanted to write about daffodils.
