words

sometimes when i

can’t string a

sentence together …

no longer feeling

like some kind of

intellectual:

and the thought of

writing ones own

thesis is,

well,

fucking daunting …

and poetry

(as defined by the poetry gods),

seems to far

far

away …

i’ll line up a ramble,

that looks like

poetry.

It works

For

Me.

my process ~ ‘arting’

a blank canvas.

not always my idea of

awesome.

a black canvas

on the other hand.

and while some like pretty

swirls,

i prefer dripping

anguish.

you see,

i finally did away with the

‘others’

critique,

and went back to what

i ‘felt’.

art-ing

has always been about

the ‘feels’,

i just hadn’t realised it.

in a world that likes

words,

and

explanations;

sometimes,

there just aren’t any

to ‘describe’ what it is I

‘feel’.

but ‘slapping paint onto canvas’;

thats like making mud-pies;

or squishing

play-dough.

it doesn’t need an

explanation.

it just ‘Is’.

and just being,

just doing,

just ‘Is-ing’,

is sometimes

far more productive,

than

Not.

a little update

It’s been a crusty week / weekend. Me and the partner have some kind of fluy crappy virus thing … his of course is way worse because it’s part of the ‘man – flu’ syndrome. Yes peeps, the struggle is real 😉

Aside from this, I’m plodding, trying to remain on course, positive and all that bullshit.

I’m acutely aware that the anniversary of my sisters death is coming up in a few weeks.

The ‘family’ is silent.

Her babies are grappling with their pain.

I don’t like it. At all.

Looming anxiety mixed with ‘virus symptoms’ are making for a slightly uncomfortable existence at the moment – thank fuck for anti-anxiety meds!

My partners father is unwell … heart related, unwell. I know the worry is straining him. We find out this week what the haps is next.

On a completely different note:

I have approximately 5 weeks before our womens collective Art Exhibition goes up … and I’m … ummm … not ready.

Art, or painting … for Me, is a ‘in-the-moment’, ‘go-with-the-feeling’ kind of thing. Which is why I’ve had difficulty creating pieces to order or to sell. My Art is about venting or expressing, not about making people happy with pretty pictures. So when it comes to knocking something up for an Exhibition … yeah well … need I say more. Eeeek.

And on a similar note … but Not lol: I did 3 pieces for an Exhibition that goes up today. I’ll post more on that one later in the week. I feel a little apprehensive, strangely enough. I didn’t last time. But these pieces are hugely raw. Yes, on any given day, raw is my go-to; but these are even rawer than that lol.

Anyway …

Back to the grind. There’s a mound of washing and no other cunt to do it 😉

Know Your Baldwin …

I love the Response Process … Solid!

Janelle Monáe, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Rock, Lupita Nyong’o and these other celebrities want you to know that they’re not your negro — and that you should know your James Baldwin.
