Full Moon- April 30
Art from ArtPropelled
The Sun today is fluctuating. Coming out to warm and then going back behind the clouds. Fugitive.
We called a color that--fugitive- in art classes if it wasn't "permanent". Light fast. We call people fugitive. If they run away and disappear.
This Moon shines into the skylight over my sink in the kitchen. I turn out the lights to go to bed--look up and the Moon and I communicate. It's not something I understand. I feel the pull. I raise my hand and hold the moon in my fingers. Imagine pulling it down and into my pocket. Over my heart.
Today I filled page three in that new mixed media art workbook. Page one (4/24) was a watercolor mix of circles. Page two is still in progress--I measured off squares to fill the page and then began making alphabet letters to fill the squares. I had to measure, erase, measure again. Finally, I have most of the letters. B is still a problem. W is way to large. L. Do I make the leg long or short. I have worked on this page for almost a week. Today I started page three (4/30) with circles again. Filled them with bits of text from the classifieds. Then, I didn't like it. Glued images from a food magazine--I think they are watercolors of worms and things found in soil. Two "worms and a circle with legs" and the work was good enough.
That's enough for today. I am melancholy. Spring is a time of new beginnings and I am trailing so many unresolved ties to the Past, things I should let go of..... perhaps I will write them on paper and bury them in the Earth. Where the Moon shines tonight.
