Here we found the colour and texture of Scotland - the blue hills fading into the distance, the deep heather purple flowers just gone, rock and sky. And, here we came to a decision - to use our resources and energy more consciously, to be better informed and to connect with community.
The manifestation of this decision may seem a little random at first - a boycott of a large supermarket chain, a move towards buying locally, the seeking for sources of materials, information - taking time to weigh up where our energies - both financial and physical, are being spent.
As an artist I have always thought of myself as 'non political' - but we as human beings living in the world today are all political, even if that means we do not vote, listen, contribute - that in itself is a choice, a decision, and addition to one thing or another.
So - this artist chooses to be conscious and aware. Over the next few months I will share some of my experiences - in my new 'Conscious Energy' Status, in this blog.
Some Super Moons and Sprites - these are now available:
PAINTING STATUS: Finally produced some larger pieces that I am happy with - onwards...
READING STATUS: A tower of gorgeous books to read is developing again.
COFFEE STATUS: Savouring the last of the Algerian Spice blend.
WRITING STATUS: Words are very rusty.
CONSCIOUS ENERGY STATUS: We are boycotting the main large supermarket in our area for a month - will we survive? Also - considering our TV Licence - what are we getting for this money we pay every month?
