Project 365: this week

My week in art.

 

Project 365 2012: 01.22.12 Splatter Hair--I love my paint. I let this one create itself. I had no idea what the splatters were going to turn in to.

Project 365 2012: 01.23.12 Stars, moon, sun--I was doodling (like I do 90% of the time I'm sitting), and drew a moon. I realized how I have been lacking in the creation of moons in my artwork. I decided to change that.

 

Project 365 2012: 01.24.12 The Pres--I was watching the State of the Union, and I realized what distinct facial expressions Barack Obama has. He's a cool guy.

 

Project 365 2012: 01.25.12 And then she remembered--I had a headache. I felt like my brain was going to fall out.

 

Project 365 2012: 01.26.12 Key--I watched Forward Theater Company's 1,000 Words and was inspired about what words can do. The story is about a fantastic photographer, Walker Evans whom I am so inspired by.

Tears of light

We cry tears of joy, tears of sorrow, tears of anger and tears of confusion, but we fail to remember our tears of light which are the tears that aren’t physically apart of us, but are so vital to our existence.

Division.

Our light was exquisite yesterday. I shot this using a “natural gobo”. This is my invention. I used the light coming through the window and the got the light to point on Elly’s face through the side of a window shade. Thanks for following!

Purple Chaos

I think I have a chaotic week ahead of me.  I’m going to strive to live in the moment and love the process.

Here is some art that came out of my brain over the past two days.

 

Project 365 2012 01.14.12: Straight Chaos--I'm not really sure where this came from, I just kept drawing lines...

Project 365 2012: 01.15.12 Purple view--Model: Elly Craig---The light was to beautiful today, I had to capture it. I love how her belt reflects off of her funky purple shirt on her right arm!

 

Enjoy your week and Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Whispering loudly

I found this photo which I took during out first snow back in December. I can’t believe the perfect ring around these beautifully dancing trees.

They are dancing on the wind. Fearlessly showing themselves. Whispering loudly.

Screen printing!

AH! Today was an awesome day! I sat around in the basement in the dark with my family a lot. There were also some very interesting discussions which out of context would be extremely strange. However, I am not at liberty to discuss those discussions here…;( I’ll leave that up to your imaginations.

Me with my screen printer!

Screen printing is magical. The moment I saw the screen after burning the design with light, I screamed for a couple of minutes. Seriously. I should have video taped the screaming and jumping that went on. Then, when I first put the ink down on the screen and saw how the print looked I had another screaming attack.

Screen printing is boss.

Happy Friday!

Catching up

Here is what I’ve been up to this week…

 

Project 365 2012: 01.08.12 Hug your friends--I took this after a wonderful day of youth government with amazing people who I don't get to hug very often.

Project 365 2012: 01.09.12 Doodle--I nearly forgot my art on this crazy day. Luckily I'm always doodling.

Project 365 2012: 01.10.11 Why not?--I like to be unexpected. I decided to volunteer for a local theatre company today. I think it's the beginning of a wonderfully spontaneous experience.

Project 365 2012: 01.11.12 Earnest Poster--I finished the poster for my next production with the new company, 608 Productions. I got the posters printed and I'm very happy with them. COME TO THE SHOW!

Project 365 2012: 01.12.12 Spooky Snow--The snow finally started falling in the midwest today after a spring-like January. I really like the color of the sky and the orange from the light reflecting on the falling snow.

Contact Improv

Today was fantastic. I woke up and after a delicious green smoothie, went to a contact improv class with my sister. The class was amazing and opened my eyes up to a whole new way of using my senses to discover the world and the people living on it. The post-modern dance form tells stories, creates beauty, and energizes the body. It can be deep, meaningful, silly, comedic or any kind of emotion. You can watch some of it action here, or you can learn the concepts of the dance here. One of the things that I think is most delightful about the dance is that anyone can do it. It does look complex and scary, but as soon as I started, it seemed like I had been dancing all my life.

Tonight, Elly (my sister) and I went to a contact contact improvisation performance which was apart of “Mazopalooza“.  We watched more contact improv (I even got to be in one of the dances!), and at the end participated in a French ritual pronounced “oochy”. We lit candles and made resolutions before going in to the middle of the circle for more dancing. I resolve to be spontaneous without reservation.
