Welcome to my blog, Un-Shushable.
I’m known for saying my mind and sometimes speaking before I have thought it all out, but No one denies, I say it as I see it. You might be able to shush me but not my paintings, they are…Un-Shushable! So now you understand….I will not be told what to think and feel. I’m sure many of you can relate. It does seem there’s always some know it all lurking about, trying to ‘disconnect’ from humanity by dismissing us…I also know if I want to talk, then I also need to listen. There are always sacrifices so we can do something we want.
I’ve decided to blog about a few of my paintings. I have been reticent to do this because I want you to experience the images for yourself, make up your own story. What does it mean to you, how does it make you feel? Once I create a painting and put it out there for all to see, it ceases to belong to me…not in the real sense, but yeah, in the real sense. It takes on a new persona. As each person tells me what they feel when they look at my images, the more detached I become…in the best most loving way. I’m happy that they will be accepted by others. I put so much into them, sharing something that felt real. I want them to be respected for the passion they exude. They aren’t just like people, they are. They’re me.
Every now and then my head…just pops off. Don’t pretend like you don’t know what I mean. Sometimes you’re just standing completely mired in total absurdity, and your head pops off. People are amazing and horrifying. Come on, it’s true. I’m sure I’ve been horrifying to someone once…more than once. Whatever. Ha ha!
That was the impetus for this particular painting…I’m going to let you chew on that…would love to hear how the rest of this story goes in your imagination…that’s the beauty of art, there is no right or wrong story…in fact, each painting becomes more alive every time a new version of its story is told.
I will be posting each week from Un-Shushable. Check back to see what I’m up to! I’d love to hear from you…
