a New Shift of Mind, But Wait :

art for sale
I hate being an artist.

Please go to new blog which replaced this one but there are posts here that are not there. (good and funny) You may like me and want to read later. But Now this is the NEW , New ART and New writings. Just thought I’d tell you.

People always say when I mention I hate being an artist that I chose it. Of course I’d like to have my work remembered but it is a career that simply takes over. OK I let it and for me that was just what happened.  All or nothing.

I feel like I have donated my life, any type of sanitary , surroundings for  a life of artistic poverty. Needless to say this life, the artist’s dream, gave me the luxury of painting whatever I like, whether you like it or not. Too bad I didn’t guess right. Here’s the fun part, whining.
Randow negative thoughts: OO, They hate my work, Mother was right. I’m not good. Hey, it’s a depressing career. Some of us buy into it. Why? Do I like punishment? An excessive amount? Why?

Because I was diagnosed with depression. Pills, no thanks, I’d rather cry and I did.

Another DR. he saw a painting, many years later, changed my diagnosis to dysthymia. That’s where depression = happiness and the rest of your days are in deeper gloom.
So to ease my dreariness I  blog , paint and advocate for animals, draw scathing satirical pictures. Swear, and had my first temper tantrum.  Few see except for 73 fans in the universe. They are my stars

Well when I was in the hospital for pneumonia, I was reassessed by another  shrink. He walked in when I was practicing my one woman play with two characters, wearing a trench coat and bike helmet. He asked if I saw any bugs and I laughed. That did it.  I read my chart, I was now manic depressive. I had joined the ranks of the Greats.

I also like political satire and am good at it.  Almost 70, on my death bed, I can be good at everything.
Sorry ranting a bit.

A week later, what a baby. boo hoo.

Please look at my galleries. Perhaps you ll find a small piece you like for your own wall. Modestly priced  to enhance my lung fund. Thank you.

A New View Of India

India a land of all
a land of all
A New Look of India views its glorious leaders and Father of the Nation Babu

Paint a Vision of a Nation Born for Greatness
Artist Statement for India 2015

Yes I’ve been called and I am the artist who will do this for you. I’m not sure this painting is what you expected but why would I paint that. The artist as visionary presents new ways to think, see and conceive. I have presented visually, a concept of a nation incorporating past, present, and future.

I want people to think about a place that birthed such extraordinary leaders as Buddha, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa. The seeds of potential that lay in your land is the Mother of greatness, the Earth. India bears the genetic codes of these leaders. People need to realize these people are within them.

What is each person’s projection of something they want to do in their life, for their country and for their people. India is a nation that is rising to new levels of greatness that already exist. I want to waken that spirit that inspire people to look at their lives and to allow this to happen. They will want the energy,and feel the vibrations of a painting with a story that will foster a new sense of yearning to take part.

India is finding an economic spurt that will increase business and bring money to the workers.but it could also land in the pockets of government officials, as seen before. India is a democracy and most workers and students do not know the shackles of the British or the ancient systems that hold and trap minds. They only have a lot of people who can’t even imagine what to do.

The children being raised under the bridges will only know how to play in traffic. They are the future of India. The news spoke of a 4-year-old girl, sold for a small price, who was married and then murdered. This is nowhere near any interpretation I’ve heard of for arranged marriage, just craziness.
The US just gave India billions to clean up their country, this should provide jobs to all the homeless living under the bridges and daycare so they will not worry about their children. Surely rapists will head the lines to get the best Ganges clean up jobs.

India is historically a great nation, culturally significant and it’s peoples can do anything: I was surprised to know India joined the space race. Congradulations.


Dino Lady and the Dinosaurs

The Dinosaurs love me cuz I'm dyno mite .
The Dinosaurs love me cuz I’m dyno mite .

A world of no Trash, Peace,Vegetarians( these dinosaurs would never eat their friends.) I wrote a song to go with it. The have beautiful voices and their range is terrific. We sang and danced and the earth shook. I knew they were old as they had good vocabularies.
They came to school everyday.

At night we went to Jack’s Place down the block. They had a jukebox but we made our own music. We played charades. I noticed they ate a lot and I tried to slow them down as vegetation became scarce. THEY WERE SO BIG. They fell at my feet and eventually they were gone. I knew I would be lonely so I went with them.

That was that.

Arcadia a Land of Peace

Arcadia a Land of Peace

I used to be a gentle woman, with drops of vermilion paint
reeking of romanticism. The brush I used for my battles, camouflage
canvases to hide, or die behind. Replaced by brutality and violence. If
there’s not war and its crimes, how do t release my fury. Are these tears or rage, anger, or sweetness, Chantilly lace and Vermouth. Treasures I no longer dream of and then gone.

And yet in this new world, where images are misplaced: the sky
and sea inverts and a chorus of Muses. Musical glitter,polish the world, committed to love, beauty, and peace
for nature and the planet, and for all who have been here and for all who will come.
