Re Drawing-a-Day:Thoughts behind the Making;
Each image is singular to the unfolding day it witnesses.Each introductive” Word” to the drawing becomes the colour of an opening Sound.The ultimate “Gift intent “upholds the frequency of a time device within a story.
“Images are not purely aesthetic compilations but contain information of an unknown essence."
Each image from the above project is singular as the unfolding day it witnesses.
An opening sound is conveyed through the depicted “Word”. Numerology records a vibration.
I found a playing card on the pavement by my foot 'the joker,' equivalent to the Fool in the Tarot whose planet Uranus today squares with Aries. New beginnings! Faith in the future… so if you would not mind designing a new front page for drawing-a-year. Just the title in large letters and a few words as an offer, leading onto the next page with the first and the last image.
Thank you xx
I was touched by a number of your drawings but these 3 had a specific resonance.
'Ondine' - Ondine is a wonderful woman, a member of my family. She has had a particularly difficult time recently. I wanted to gift her this beautiful drawing to bring some light into her life and to let her know that I think of her and know how difficult things are for her during these moments in time.
'Dawn' - Dawny is a very close friend of mine. She is an amazing woman who always helps me bring my creative vision into being. When I saw Genie's 'Dawn', I realised why Dawn's mama had called her 'Dawn'. Her name suddenly took on a new meaning. She is a woman who brings with each new day her huge heart, optimism and acceptance of what is. She brings her light.
'Secret' - This touched something deep within me.What lies hidden? What is conscious, what is not?
My journey through life....
Thank you for you dearest Genie and your beautiful creations
The I Ching marking recent images. Archetypes of change.
Images not so much as objects as of states of change.
That every event in the visible world is the effect of an image that is of an idea in the unseen world.
Images trigger the Receptive and the Creative according to the Tao.
A process technology:
The I Ching facilitates daily images to become a transformative process therefore unpredictable. The one constant is the format-size of the image.
* I Ching * Receptive * Change * Process * Time *Transformative * Hexagram
DRAWING: No. 290. MERCURY on the butterfly wing, Numerology 11.
QUICKSILVER symbol Hg - also the smallest planet in the Solar system.
Oh, so good, so fresh, so inspiring!
Fantastic Genie, I don't know what to say, these works are like collected flowers on a walk somewhere and then coming home, one looks at the flowers and puts the flowers in water or between the leaves of a book.
Somehow it relates to the walk or some how the walk relates to other things and the flowers are incidental but nevertheless images of what transpired.
To condense all the sensations of a spring walk after winter that's a real breath of fresh air, is it not?
Much love, hope to speak tomorrow. Thank you. G
Hello Dear Genie
I love your drawings/images, very reminiscent of William Blake and also reflected in your comments. Essentially what you are engaged upon is poetry, visual poetry of course, and of course one thinks of Jay Ramsey. What a strange set of connections we have!
This new work of yours is totally inspired and inspiring as a result? Refreshing and exciting, like a child listening to a story and almost, 'desperately' wanting to know what happens in 'Chapter Four. I can see you are enjoying this very much for the images speak for themselves.
I will send you a link on Blake, all of which you know, but just as a reminder, because what you are doing and saying is exactly how he responded to the circumstances in his time. I have always held a great respect for Blake, his ideas work commitment and courage.
Absolute terrific and encouraging work, good medicine for me also! Thank you!
Hello dear Anna
Making images daily is still entering the unknown?
It has been just over two month since this weird project started.
The experience differs and feels like a choreography of endless impulses dropped on a piece of paper.
There has been an attempt at following a call –that of the 22 Hebrew letters of fire.
Their energy proved comforting guidance.
Now this is almost over and a follow up yet invisible.
Like a bee, pollination is available, though the transformation is not obvious?
Trust might be the wax needed to create a hive.
No queen in sight; is she hidden behind Perseverance?
Requesting an image is participating in ‘un-doing’ - sharing a journey towards weightlessness, an exchange a partnership.
Sorry it's so late in the day. Today's drawing was hard work, and not completley satisfactory. My health is not good, the heat is a lot to bear. There is a lesson here... I have yet to understand it.
Hello dear Anna,
How are you feeling?
'Words', a new series of images, an attempted quest at sharing and gifting a synthesis between various intentions when they appear.
It follows the previous drawings- 'Letters', as a natural process.
