“Angee” a new Amalee Orginal.
I used the last large piece of wood that I found at my dumpster. My fairy goddess dumpster provided me with a bunch of great wood for painting. I have often pondered my fairy goddess dumpster and how I manifest things from it. This wood was the best, it was in large pieces and had the most amazing texture. I love texture.
This painting celebrates the texture. Not only in her face where it adds depth both emotionally and dimensionally, but in her hair. Where I accentuated the grain of the wood by drawing bits of it. I find myself in awe of myself when I just enjoy the beauty of this painting.
The only problem when finishing a painting like this is starting another piece. Luckily I now do live painting every Saturday at Spressa coffee Bar in San Francisco, which takes the pressure off creating. It was extremely uncomfortable at first too, but after two months it has become more enjoyable.
I have also fallen in love with the paint pens. I used them to create the background with the gold, yellow and black. While painting “Angee” I was listening to Terrance McKenna on youtube. There was this beautiful visual on that video that particular day. I was inspired by it and kinda based the circular spirals on that image. However since that day, I have not been able to find that video. It is as if it was only there that day or was it a dream.
I have begun to glimpse a self confidence that I am an artist, a person and a sole. I do not just take up space, I actively interact with creating my reality. While I have heard this several thousand times, I am enjoying the glimpse of understanding. While I have not figured out exactly how I have begun to glimpse, I think it has to do with confidence. Confidence to be myself as an artist and as a person.
I will have new products of “Angee” available soon. I am beginning to realize I need to make original art products that are art in and of themselves. While I am still pondering how to do this, you can purchase art tiles online, at Spressa Coffee Bar, and Wonderland.
