Pencil would be better but this is what I have…Finally ART

1)Prep is GOOD TO AN EXTENT then mutation and adaptation

2)Meter it out – don’t go to fast

3)When you don’t know what to do DON”T DO ANYTHING

4)LAYER, LAYER, LAYER

5) GESSO (BLANK SLATE) is o.k too but in moderation

6) FIND MY “STYLE” (EXPERIMENT) but ALSO KNOW THAT MORE THAN ONE IS O.K TOO it will still be me…

7) I recognize my brush strokes even in pottery I’m me…

8)Different “styles” but I see myself in my art whatever it is I CAN’T ESCAPE MYSELF

9)To have a “ME” IS GOOD DON’T FIGHT IT some never find themselves or don’t want to be found

10)Don’t  make  ART if  you don’t want to, you will that afternoon or evening or the next day BUT GO TO POTTERY even if you don’t want to…keep going to stay CONNECTED

11)Don’t talk about it until its developed to an extent whcih you feel secure

12)Don’t think too much

13)Let yourself be happy

14) TRUST YOURSELF

15)ROUGH IS O.K but not too much

16)MUSIC SOMETIMES

17)DO IT YOURSELF!

18)ART CENTRES and HELPS

19)YOU HAVEN’T ABANDONED ANYONE BY DOING YOUR ART

20)DON’T BE TOO HARD ON YOURSELF BUT STAY GROUNDED

21)LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH

22)LOVE YOURSELF BUT WATCH THE INFLATED EGO

23)CREATE FOR THE RIGHT REASONS i.e. to feel good – as an outlet for expression

24)EXPRESS YOURSELF IN YOUR ART not to everyone who asks

25)PROTECT YOURSELF in moderation

26)HAVE BOUNDARIES – don’t be fooled by people who say if your not talking it’s bad or you’re depressed and you have to share etc – its their problem, their issues- their boundary problemsNOT YOURS, LET THEM DEAL WITH IT! YOU HAVE TO SET BOUNDARIES FOR YOURSELF DON’T FEEL BADLY ABOUT THAT!

27)TRUST IS MY CORE ISSUE

28)You can learn to trust

29) COMMUNICATE what you need and want, COMMUNICATE PERIOD

30)I am important enough to say what I want, I matter enough to ask for things, I AM LOVED

NOW ART (IS COMMUNICATION) IS THE ANSWER/ HUMANITY IS THE QUESTION/ LIGHT/DARK GREY

Put it all into perspective MY FAMILY IS WHAT I NEED TO PROTECT however I need to balance that with being ME and doing what I need to do to be happy so I can protect them (from myself and others)

Sketches for pottery _ I don’t need to do sketches here in my STUDIO but I can – it might be useful to do A STUDy Like what I wanted before to write a small thing that will be bigger later A STUDY WHY NOT?

PATIENCE

PRACTICE

PATIENCE

Texture, colour, LAYER

MISTAKE , mutation, Adaptation

I’ve painted on M’s wall – a sun My bedroom wall in Montreal a flower – and now here on a set, a landscape keep going it’s building – building up layer upon layer ITS GOOD!

My Pattern

1) Happy

2)Separation

3)Unhappy

4)Unloved

5)Irritable

6)Critical of self and Others

7)Think I am dying or become self-destructive or BOTH

Hormones also involved period

Can I leave the fixative in the garage? Not near the heat or electric motor garage basement both bad I need it for pastels

Talked to my dad….re ART — Accident, mutation, adaptation
