Thank you, everyone, for attending and sending kind wishes for my solo show at Rooftop Solar Art Space! It was a wonderful time and there were SO many people! Elbow to elbow at some points. I appreciate the one-to-one conversations and meeting people I never would otherwise. We were accompanied by the jazz sounds of Victor Ziegelbaum, who played and sang everything from Django Reinhardt to Cole Porter. Crave Aurora and Effusion were sold, and so I bid them goodbye. (I do get a lump in my throat, every time.)

I was planning to say yet another goodbye. This time, to Arcadia Magazine. My most recent and last installment of the six-month-long art column, “Familiar Spirits Light a Way”, was sent to the editor on Monday. However, to my happy surprise, he wrote back and invited me to stay on for another six months. How can I say no? I can’t!  So, in a couple of months, I will again start a new adventure with another collection of six paintings. For now… go visit Arcadia to read the last of this series featuring Oscillons.

Glory and the Earthen Temple

This song has been echoing in my mind lately. Warpaint, “Love is to Die”.

 

Let us be like birds who build their nests, hair by string by feather by dried grass, placing great effort and infinite love into life.
