I'm Not Dead!

Hello Chickadees!*
I'm not dead! (Yet.) Just in the throes of finals and moving! Here's a peek at what sort of questionable activities have been shakin' at HerSpeak:


I know I'm late--shame on me. For this Moon cycle I'm wishing for Levity: some lightness, some whimsy, some relief and some moon-wing shoes to put some bounce in my step.
I can't wait to peruse all of your moon creations!


I've spent the last two weeks doing a major purge of the apartment. Time to let go of garbage and Baggage. Here's Mr. Milo helping me hold down the clutter fort while I sort.

I had a giant Give-Away last weekend--super fun! All of my friends and neighbors came by to look for treasures and cleared me out of StUfF I didn't need any longer. We had a killer turn out--they were like vultures. One big happy apartment clutter puke. :D

Making Stuff:

Here are a few in-progress pieces I've been working on in the last few weeks:

A self portrait was inspired by Mayan priestess pottery paintings...

Still a LOT of work left to go on this piece. The face needs to be finished and then one big juicy blue glaze over the top to push and flatten the whole image.

I just finished this piece--and while the paint was still wet my professor hung it in the display case before I got to document it. So, you can see my reflection while I try to catch a shotty photo through the glass like a cat burglar...

I just started laying paint down for this 'Creatrix' piece on Wednesday. I'm working larger these days and looking at a lot of Mayan ritual imagery for inspiration. The headdresses and body modification are amazing! I'm letting it spill over into my art journaling as well...

So tomorrow is the big day! We're packin' this party up and moving downtown.
Gypsy caravan...yehaw!

Until Next Time--
Merry Belated Full Moon and Many Blissings!

Mr. Milo is adorable.
Having a Give-away party is a great way to lighten the load, I love that idea.
I'm feeling all your mayan paintings. I've recently been into the Mayan Goddess Ixchel..so it resonates with me deeply.
Happy Full Moon and Beltane.
