imagination

my bits of heART come to me fully formed

when these bits remain unresolved i become positively restless

without my model i am left with nothin’ but imagination

(models. sigh.)

the idea has now moved from doodle to painted doodle

progress? …or am i just moving farther from that bit?

imagination can be a dangerous thing

patience is near impossible!

p.s. my experiment with acrylics has begun in earnest. i remain unconvinced.


mildly violated

my car was broken into

right in my lane

the assailants absconded with a pile of dusty change and my sense of security

my expressionism class, just after, provided the victim support

…AND I am kind of insulted that the crackheads didn’t seem to be interested in my music.

here is what happens when

a saturday

the eve of Ottawa Fashion Week

a MOMA modern art history “expressionism” module

reflections on an odd number of weeks

and

a Marie-Claire magazine

collide

…and, of course a reverent nod to both¬†Wangechi Mutu and Egon Schiele who rocked my world this week

inspiration hunt

 

what does heARTbeatgal do when she is craving inspiration?

new perspectives

re-energized

ready to paint
