Summer & just over 100 days to cannabis legalization, every time you turn around your reading about it, I have an abundance of material. I'm going to try to focus on positive when it comes to cannabis art & keep it currently Canadian. I highly recommend the Cooking On High - on netflix.
I'm tired of Trump.
Everyday I feel more drawn into the hate that swirls around everything Trump... sucking me down into a spiral of hopelessness for America. I get very heavy hearted thinking about my american friends (I've met so many over the years, sent so many past cards... I'm sorry, frig the last thing I want to do is add to your misery at the moment, (I am afraid for you) I get why I am so pissed off... I care. I can't turn on the TV & forget what's happening. I don't understand how any sane person can support him and all his evil.. he has me fearful for Americans, let alone the rest of the world. What do you do about it?
We are BOMB barded with his antics & lies - daily & hourly. I am TUNING OUT.
I'm taking a social media break - Todays post on IG will the the last for a few weeks if not longer - we'll see. I've set up my camera again and am working on some time-lapse art lessons. The one I posted -- sorry BTW, I can't load it onto my computer - if you want to see it it's on my IG account- which is currently private because I like to check out everyone if I can & 'accept all'. It's a vid our cat and I was trying out some new gold paint - OMGouache! It makes me tingle with excitement. https://www.instagram.com/georgia.toons/ so you will be see more of these when I resume. I do know they will help some learn how to paint- as This is how I have learned & still have much learning to do.
The past 3 weekends I've spent completely alone, no speaking, no socializing.. painting and peace. I get up at 5, nap, eat, watch what I want, go to bed when I'm beat and don't argue with anyone but the girls as they all stare me down while I try to enjoy a bite... or Bird when he goes on a squeaking tangent for attention - a "Bird! Knock it off You little Feathered F*...!" - He does, I giggle and he swipes a smack at my head in a "fly bye'.
I feel I don't know how to live with 'others it seems at this point.
& do feel all I seem to do is make everyone angry, when I try to talk about current events- I'm told -I'm depressing. It is depressing. What are we to do? I don't believe turning blind eye helps, I can't 'be amused' by the current movie just released. God has a purpose for me - it is to draw, I know this not because of my cool name ;), & no, I don't literally hear God speak to me, not even on 'drugs'. I know this because it is what I love to do above all else and seem to do best -it calms my brain & lifts my heart. I know this because people are touched when I share my art with them, especially when they do realize I don't want anything in return, I have forgotten who has got what over the past 10 years - the brain thing meant to happen, I can't possibly keep track... all I know is it is when I feel LOVE in my own heart is when I share something special with someone thought my painting, cards, cartoons, crafts. My art seems to make people 'feel' & it's NOT all about feeling good.
A lot of time for Reflection
The next few weeks posts will be mostly images & few words.
I won't be showing my finished art - only hints of what I'm currently working on while trying to avoid any Trumpinsania Mania. The next few weeks I'm pulling a 'Monet's Garden -he painted in his own garden, surely I can find as much in mine. Everything is NOW on the verge of blooming and I'm going to paint one canvas every day by the grace of God. Acrylic - all sizes, gouache as well.
I'm pulling a Monet so I don't feel like a Van Gogh I just want to be Georgia'.
In many ways like Georgia... without the younger man, It's such a true statement (in the article) - it was o.k. for all those OLD ARTIST men - like Picasso (who raped a 17 year old)
BUT not for Georgia. Will double standards ever cease to exist?
Thank you for your continued support... you know who you are.
