The Real Secret Is ...

“This is the real secret of life; 
to be completely engaged with 
what you are doing in the here and now. 
And instead of calling it work, 
realize it is play.”
~ Alan W. Watts
a. "Rising" ~ 8 x 10" matted original a.i. painting

Today I played with an alcohol ink color combination I had never tried before. It is packaged together by Ranger Industries, so I wanted to give these three hues a workout. These two paintings were both done with blowing the ink around - (painting a - with canned air) and (painting b - with my new mini air compressor). Both were done working with the same three colors: Cranberry, Lettuce and Eggplant. I found it to be an interesting mix of colors and plan on continuing my search for knowledge of what we can do together.

b. "Same High Moment" ~ 8 x 10"original a.i. painting

The piece below is one I've had on my table for a week or so. Today, subconsciously I added some highlights with white to the totally abstract background. I think spirit is trying to tell me something here.

"Ancient Spirit" ~ 10 x 8" a.i. matted on Yupo
What do you see?

BTW  - My horse, Rita, is doing very well, in case you were wondering.
Thanks again to all of you for rallying for her recovery from Potomac Horse Fever.

I'm patting myself on the back today for completing another blog post here
within a week instead of two this time! LOL ...


I hope your summer is continuing to go well everyone.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Creating!
