PaintersHouse Weekly- Bridegroom Sketch, Soda Bread and FieldNotes panels at Spirit Mountain

Sanctuary

Seeking commissions and Ava-in-Residence invitations to design and paint the reverse sides of #KelleyPadrick’s FieldNotes doors and panels

My Bridegroom sketch acknowledges the door handles on the reverse side of these doors reclaimed during PaintersHouse renovation work.

I want Christ to be reaching for His Bride, kind of Mission Impossible-ing his descent. I was obviously very impacted by my daughter’s wedding last weekend- sitting behind her, looking into her groom’s face as he made his vows to my sweet girl. Will update pic soon with something less blurry (like my eyes currently as I give thanks for their happiness:)

BirthdayCake Colorways- PaintersHouse Weekly

#Summer #Melon & #Stars for #MoonLanding50! I got a $1 bag of awesome summer stuff from the local thrift (Idyllwild Help Center) and donations for #Civic #Art #Collections from Community Presbyterian Thrift Shoppe. It’s going to be a fun summer in #BirthdayCake #Colorways.

a new room has begun!

A featured artwork I'm using for this #Colorways was created by Idyllwild quilter Marcia Monroe, bringing in the #localflavor. To that I'm adding colorful banners repurposed from year one of the Ren Faire. I'm sure they'll be glad I kept them!

See the difference between a stream visualization (with its emerging or temporary forms as indicative possibilities) vs. the "individual profile" beneath. (One of my original spin drawings & #BeliefDNA ID #1:) The individual profile resolves on itself: like the perfect picture painted in many self-development manuals. You'd only look like this in a broad field with plenty of grow room around you. In busy tech-driven urban, suburban life we look more like the form above. We're completing each others' sentences, or speaking in sound bites. I can make this illustration on a frozen stream (the wood grain) but realize how many years it took for the wood's image to develop. I'll be looking for ring cuts to play with as well: to see how years emerge from this place. #MindfulMaking Place-based meditation: a #Sanctuary offering. Also introversion/extroversion (I resolve on the stream or resolve on my center/node. #MoralCompass) And zoom in zoom out from individual cell to whole social organism with appropriate layers turned on. OR (giggles) dispersion patterns during transformation. #DesignThinking for the #AvaReport

Forms that emerge are so different when I change my focus to the wood grain 1st, spin 2nd. Enduring themes repeat themselves in streams on this spinning rock. Splat:)

it was funny. I had the experience of "losing my place" (like reading text) this morning

 

Local Flavor

Now think about consciously choosing our pattern overlays.  Repeated behaviors (personal or groups) make patterns. At key intersections, those become solid (think about how sticks and leaves gather around a rock in a stream to begin forming a waterfall). Note how the random paint splatters meet the organizing form of the template. 

As engaged citizens, we'll be making art with these patterns, choosing where to allow them to influence our neighborhoods.

a few paintings for #kelleypadrick's #fieldnotes ended up on the "cutting room floor." Painting on these well after I completed the larger body of work helps me transition into the next one: processing skills earned/lessons learned and relating my past work to the present moment and the next body of paintings and designs. Process-driven #HXD helps to avoid writers block. Revisiting the religious icon type I was investigating when I started #beliefdna. #studio #wayfinding a #sanctuary offering.

slowly but surely getting pantry organized: I experimented with food bank ingredients & think each #rnb & #makerpad needs a few good recipes to do theme and variation on depending on season, availability & #localflavor. If a seasoned expert comes to stay, we can vary (or suspend) our basic menus, but we'll have established a #painterhouse approach to food and snacks should we wish to go down that road.
