Into the Open

2016-04-04 17.53.14.jpgDon’t you dare miss me
You threw away the key
Into the lake
For my sake
To have to miss you
Haven’t got a clue
Addicted no doubt
Stop at a reflect of a pout
Scream and shout
I know you hear me
Up stream I’m keeping afloat
Only to find a boat
Full of broken fears
A vivid spark appears
With it a key
The stream is leading off to sea

The near future

Turning in for a pit stop

My heart closing shop

Reopened for a reno

Been hurt before we all know

Stomp those thoughts away

Be together maybe someday

For now I’ll just ponder thoughts

Ignore the sound of the shots

That were left behind

Your name now headlined

Sparkle in the eyes

Tears in yours dries

Forgot now why there were worries

The snow comes down in flurries

Time is running out

Act quickΒ  before it’s time to shout

Here to stay no doubt

Smile day in day out

Recognizing the pain

Of yesterday

As only a pathway

To what is yet to come

This is who we’ve become

It’s a hoot

What I really like about this piece is that it was completed in two different years of my life. The background I painted at Shambhala Music Festival in 2016. (That place fuels my artistic fire….I’ll write an article on the magic vibes there one day.) The owl, which Shambhala uses as their logo in a partial way, I painted as soon as I got home from the festival in 2017. Yes I went two years in a row. I’m addicted to the vibes, energy, and like minded people that attend. Not to mention the music. BUT. Getting off topic. At the time of painting the background I had no idea what this piece was going to become. A year later after I came home from the fesitval, I found this piece tucked away in the back of my canvas stash. What a perfect time to pull it out, I thought. Remembering where I had started this piece, it was no question what I wanted to complete it with. My love for Shambhala. β™‘

Rick and Morty

“I built a portal Mooorty *burrrp* ” – Rick

This one was made especially for my hunny, who’s an avid Rick and Morty fan.

Here’s Cam (my hunny) going to buy the new season via amazon cause its not released in Canada yet, and I know I’m going to be watching it for the next two weeks until he memorizes every scene. I’ll admit I wasn’t huge into it when I first saw an episode, but as I watched more and more, I became mostly facintated by their art, and those unique ideas. Like who decided to make Rick a pickle? πŸ˜†

“I’M A PICKLE MORTY, PICKLE RIIIIIICK!”Β 

This one was so fun to paint, I can see more Rick and Morty features in the future. 😊

Refurbished creation β™Ί

Refurbished wall decor

This funky piece now holds my favorite unicorn candle on it. I almost used it for a mini bulletin of small photos, but the pink candle and turquoise went together so well.

Originally it was bought at a thrift store, looking ancient and ready to be thrown out. With this new look, its probably something you’d find at a Winners. Not in a landfill or thrift store.

In a generation of consumers, I wish to see more refurbishing and reuse.Β
