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.
