Un peu de nouvelles

🌊🌴🦜 HELLO LOVELIES! EVERYBODY HAVE A NOTION ABOUT EDEN, AND THIS IS VERY WONDERFUL. TRÈS JOLIE!

Stephanie Huguenot

Mon dernier article date de quelques mois. Ce qui est paradoxal, c’est que je n ai pas été débordée , en tout cas pas plus que d habitude…

Ma priorité reste plutôt la peinture. Et faire un blog demande du temps et de l’organisation. Je me rends compte que je ne me suis pas servi de mon stock d’articles version Brouillon, j avais pourtant de quoi alimenter le site . Remettre toujours cette tâche à demain…..et les articles finissent aux oubliettes. Le dicton populaire est donc toujours juste : Ne remets pas à demain ce que tu peux faire aujourd’hui……

Sinon j’ai commencé un petit cahier de jardinage où je note la floraison et m’ émerveille des fleurs . En mars’ il y a eu les jonquilles bien sages puis les tulipes qui me font penser à l’Allemagne, par contre les muscaris me donne une pensée amusante et dissonante :…

our history

🎻🧡 SO TRUE, SISTERS. A TENOR BLOGGER ALWAYS LOVE ANY SKETCHES ABOUT MUSICIANS LIKE THESE.

kestrelart

Folk singer Rhiannon Giddens brings together musical traditions from her mixed race heritage in the southern States of the USA (her parents married only 3 years after the unconstitutional ban was overturned), along with Gaelic and wider sources. She is a phenomenal and versatile performer with ballet and opera composing credits to her name and recently appointed the artistic director of the Silk Road ensemble founded by cellist Yo Yo Ma. She is also a music historian. She traces the history of the banjo from its African roots through the travelling bands of enslaved then indentured musicians in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the appropriation of this genre into black-face minstrelsy continuing well into the twentieth century, and the general abandonment of this tainted culture by its originating people such that the banjo associates today with white folk music.

The preface to David Olosuga’s book Black and British describes…

A Live Art Show!

🤩 OH LOVELIES, TODAY WE’VE GOT A GORGEOUS WORK.

Tiffany Arp-Daleo Art

18″ x 18″ Mixed Media on Canvas

I am thrilled to announce for the first time in over a year, I have a painting, “The Mind of a Child” exhibited in a real LIVE juried art show!!!!

Theme: 
Jim Dine painted ‘hearts’ constantly, Wayne Thiebaud was hooked on painting dessert slices, Picasso had an entire ‘Blue Period.’ What captivates you? What is it you want to paint again and again? A symbol, a color, a landscape, an object, a figure, or a seascape? Show us! Let us see what completely inspires you.

This was easy. My current obsession is mandalas. I was gifted with a slew of mandala stencils for Christmas last year, since then, you will notice my infatuation, they are in a lot of my work. I love the symbolism, and it’s easy to modify them to make them personal!

I Fear Love!

😟 OH DARLINGS, I UNDERSTAND THIS SISTER.

Shethinker

I fear love; I am paranoid of that tingling feeling in my gut. the kisses of love, consume me; they eat away my existence scratching the walls of my heart which has already dried up. the soft touches of my lover's coarse fingertips burn my skin which once felt like warm sunlight. I have always been hungry for long hugs, a pair of arms who can embrace my heart, promising it peace and a forever but all I got ever were cages and clench of longing. all I dreamt of was feather-like love that sweeps me off reality, and takes me to a land of fantasy, where the sun rises in hues of romance and evening arrives with a sweet sensual aura. However, what my days with love have taught me is that, love is like cotton, lightweight when fresh and new, but once it gets drenched with the tears…

Births, Babies and Brittany

♀️🎨 SO TRUE, DARLINGS. THROUGH HISTORY CHILDBIRTHS WERE SURROUNDED OF SUPERSTITIONS, BUT ALSO OF ARTWORKS.

Bonjour From Brittany

At a time when the rural population believed that disease and misfortune were manifestations of divine judgement or else produced by a spell cast by a jealous neighbour, relief was available only from the priest or the sorcerer; people turned to the old saints, miraculous fountains and the ancient stones in their attempts to gain better favour.

As elsewhere, here in the Brittany of yesteryear, the blessing of children was the biggest hope of newly married couples; being unable to meet these expectations was a major concern. To guard against infertility which was often believed to have been the result of sins committed during a woman’s lifetime, young women would invariably devote themselves to prayer and superstition, such as performing certain rites against special menhirs or making devotions and ablutions at sacred springs in hope of a pregnancy or safe childbirth.

Several superstitions once surrounded conception here in Brittany. Local…

this is what i want; this is what i need

💫 HELLO DARLINGS! AS ALWAYS ANOTHER FRESH AND GENUINE SKETCH BY ‘Q. MAMA’ WITH DEEP THOUGHTS.

Quixotic Mama

what do i need right now?
pornographic emails from a cute stranger?
or a shoulder to cry on
a friend who can listen
do i need to get laid…or do i need a hug
all of the above?
what do i need right now?

turns out i do not need pornographic emails…do i want them? that is a completely different matter. right now, however, i am focusing on my needs. the pornographic emails were nice?…kind of…they made me wonder too much about the motives of the sender…and what it said about me. i mean, attention is nice…but i need the right kind of attention.
i reached out to someone with mental health issues just to check in–and i am not sure what happened after that. it got graphic a lot faster than i was comfortable with….
it was like, jesus, buy a person dinner first.
i never realized a virtual…

HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF YOU?

🌷🌿🚿 OH DEARS, HAVE YOU FOUND SOMEONE OR ANYTHING TO ABSORB YOUR PAIN❔TAKE CARE YOURSELF, PLEASE.

Model Peace Forum

Hey,
I’m speaking to you right there whose nails and thoughts are stuck in helping and worrying about others . Have you thought of you today? Do you realize you also need that extra care you lend to others ? I’m speaking to all those out there; be it women, young adults, firstborn children, parents, leaders , wives and everyone always lending a hand to help others .

Yes, it’s never easy sitting back and watching your loved ones crumble,but have you thought of yourself too as a human? Have you gotten a grave to also bury your own burdens? Have you found someone or anything to absorb your pain or your pillow has become your last resort to cry your lungs out ?

Yes, I am speaking to that depressed soul out there losing their mind slowly with no one noticing. I’m asking if you are tired of acting…

Grito

💚💛💙 🇧🇷 SO TRUE SISTERS, THIS WORK ACHIEVED A GREAT DEPICTION OF A SOUL. OBRIGADO!

O Outro Lado

 

Minha alma é intensa…
grita ausência,
grita falta tua
grita pele nua

quer gritar emoção
quer você na mão
Nunca é por acaso a insinuação
descubro-me perdida nos pensamentos teus.
enquanto que os meus
seguem direção do teu coração

O dia inteiro te busco,
te caço, me acho
perdida em abraços

que nunca troquei
beijos que não dei

mas que compartilho
seguindo o trilho
dos caminhos que vão me levar
onde você está

entre cachoeiras, entre pantanais
numa tarde inteira visito teus quintais

visito você e pra não me perder
abro os olhos e grito que amo você
meu amor é mais.

Not my invention, though I do love originating words. The word ‘Squircle’ has been mentioned to me independently by several folk. It must be in the ether (the e-ther?).

What do you get when a circle of women meets on Zoom?

A Squircle.

Circles, curves and spirals of interconnection surrounded, but not bounded, by angles and straight lines.

What do you get when the women are participating

heartfully and artfully in a workshop-playshop?

A Squircle.

What do you get when the women connect deeply

with their creativity and with each other

in ever-evolving, respectful community?

A Squircle.

I am loving my work.
