Exhibition shananagans

Students still painting
Students hanging artwork
not a teacher in sight
No work going up
try as we might

Cranky digital teacher
upsetting students
but a few
friends standing by not knowing what to do

hearing the anguish
Feeling the stress
another student drops in
releasing her duress

and before my eyes
swaps a painting around
so she can look better
amongst the great crowd

I rub my eyes in disbelief
knowing this will cause others grief
amusement kicks in and I start to laugh
well its been a long day on the artists path

A girl sells some work she feels like the queen
then bitchy remarks some people are green

If this was the preparation I wonder what will
from the real exhibition Im sure it will be a surprise.

A pleasant one I hope………………..

Quote by Maya Angelou sent via email I thought it was so beautiful I had to share

Interview with Oprah…

Regarding body changes,

she said there were many, occurring every day…like her
breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist,

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest
woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today,
life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.”

“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she

handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled
Christmas tree lights."

“I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents,you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life."“I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as "making alife."“I’ve lear

The Fire has Gone Out

there are so many things I want to say, but I know no-one out there is really interested, so the above words, The Fire has gone out says it all. Who knows if it will come back. So for now, no more painting. Perhaps a break over xmas may help.

thanks to everyone who has supported me since Ive been on this site, I hope you all sell heaps for xmas and that you have a pleasant and happy holiday with your loved ones.

and who knows, perhaps there will be new work from me in the New Year.

3 am ~ Auto Pilot

Auto Pilot is a funny place
Like being on drugs or out in space
Button moon in a haze of Gin
Icecream, Chocolate, Indulgence, Sin
3am my heads still busy,
Giddy, Dizzy, Creative, Silly
and so I write and share my sight
with other artists who know my plight.

The Assignment

At the canvas, like a dog on heat,

There’s no time to eat, no time to sleep,

Assignments due, blood, sweat and tears,

Get your head down and just deal with your fears,

Out of my comfort zone I push myself to the test,

Coming from the heart I let the brush do the rest,

What a rollercoaster of a journey being an artist can be,

But in the same vain I know its the only one for me.
