Recent painting direction.
I am studying at the small
business venture program at Conestoga College. In between reports on succession planning, target market analysis and research on the German art world, I took some breaks and painted.
The new fine brush dipped in the acrylic made wonderful marks like calligraphic strokes in an elven tongue. I beginning to make a time each morning to draw, (like Paul Klee built up most of his work). as if I am painting the day in from of me with colors of assurance, delight and subtle delicate surprises.
"Journey of a Thousand Miles" mixed media sculpture by cdgood. 11"x 9" mounted on barn board.
A mentor of mine in my small business venture program at Conestoga College asked me if I would combine her dissertation paper and the metal piece you see here. It was to be a gift of gratitude for her mentor.
I took the challenge and asked Shelley Stoneworks to cut stones of her choice to fill in some of the gaps. I lacquered the paper and twisted it into lines of wirey words that will last for generations.
She loved it. $150 plus hours and hours of mentoring as she helps me make a business out of my artistic talents. Please let me know if you know of any place to get more metal like this.
My work is about helping others. As I twist and turn the designs into shape, I am balancing, designing, drawing a type of visual song. I almost gave up and gave it back to her, but dedication, humility and positive thoughts soon helped it form into shape.
An installation of my own personal pieces that I take orders from. This was at an open house on Saturday, November 3Oth. Had some very special visitors come by.
Finally hung my horse.
Can you feel the transformative power? :) This is a new piece that incorporates the use of a slim bead. It is a bit random on the inside but maybe that’s what make it “real” Be a star. It can be worn as a pendant. 3.5 inches around. We are so excited about this eight point star. Seeing the entrepreneur in residence at Conestoga College to find out his take on things.
Once an Amway catalogue, now a reminder to never give up, never say never, and to believe in self.
It was a day of busting through my own personal blocks today. Letting the only support come from within.
This bracelet has a bit to do with this video:
Peaceful Paper Power Pendant.- $75 US dollars.
Are you looking for a way to stay in your center calm point no matter what the scenes in front of you?
This pendant can help, it can be rolled out of your own website content or family photo. Whatever the situation that you would like to transform. I donated one to the Waldorf school. You can bid on it here http://bit.ly/18indCS/p>
This is some of what the eight represent to me. Read page 10
Order yours TODAY and I will give you a free pair of earrings ($24) and a signed copy of a book’s first draft that is just about going up on Kickstarter to fund the illustrations!!!
From now on, the posts are going to reflect a new passage of time. There was a return home of sorts. Here is the Record Article http://bit.ly/17NEjok
The Small Business Venture Program at Conestoga College is helping me focus. I still want to keep a trail of the Pocketful of Pebbles path, but no longer feel a need to post a process. I feel ready to serve! We have been cooking up a banquet. A feast.
The posts on the other side of this post will show more of what will be at the more personal/pholpsophical blog THE SCATTERED SEED. From now on, we will post a new item daily that we have composed whether to purchase or one that has been made as a custom piece.
This piece os sold appropriately to the amazing Lee Pryke.
It is what’s inside that counts, they say. Today I subjected this 50 year old collection of organic biodegradable matter to huge pulses of radiation at the dentist office. It resulted in a stunning visual of the depths of my face. I’m not feeling too well now but at least my teeth are confirmed healthy, and will stay in place for a few more years!
But looking at the x-ray I was struck about how much we don’t see. The image was a wonderful tangle of lines and shapes that look like wires and networks of connection.
I was in an architects office and saw his work on the screen. Untold amounts of work gets poured into anything tangible, anything worth while. So much is unseen behind the visible world. This reminder gives me encouragement to keep working on my business plan, my customer contacts but also my children and art production.
The visible and the tangible also points back to the thought and the love that goes into each moment too. When one stops to think about the mysteries of life how can we not just stop, stunned in our tracks at the wonder of it all? When we look, really look, into our children’s eyes would we really snip at chores not done?
Stop for a moment and just ponder the wondrous mystery in this moment, in this delicate, fragile magical world.
