Update on creative endeavours… 07/02/2015… :)

I know it’s been a while since I wrote a post here.. my apologies for that.. but I needed to step back and actually have a life beyond the creativity and focus on improving my well being… I now feel more on form and have been doing some creative stuff.. albeit not a lot in comparison to what I’d normally do… πŸ™‚
On that note… πŸ˜‰
Last year I captured the formation of a song.. I named it ” Freeflow… ” ( It’s in the February section of last year’s posts on this space… ) Anyway finally after a long wait. the lyrics came through.. also some added parts to the tune… πŸ˜€ It was well worth the wait for me.. I feel I’ve taken the next step with this particular one.. it’s not quite finished yet.. I have to add a bar between part one and two and brush it up a tad.. but it’s nearly there and I thought I’d share the moment it came through.. with you… πŸ˜€
So here goes.. the song is now titled ” Angel dear… ” As per.. as with all my songs.. it was filmed on my laptop and was filmed to capture the magical moment the lyrics were channelled through.. not the greatest sound quality.. but a magical moment indeed… πŸ˜€

I’ve also been working on my ” Ekata ” painting and I’m happy with the progression so far… The style reminds me of the ” Lady of the dance ” painting.. also the ” Celebration painting… ( I’ve had some great ideas for the next stage of that one… )
Below is a picture of the progression so far… πŸ™‚
" Ekata " in progression.
Here’s another two pictures showing sections of the detail in it…
" Ekata " Section of detail.
Spudz and Beanz.. my two ” Ragdoll cats ” I say that term for them very loosely… mmmm ( eyes rolling.. Rag Jen.. each other and the house more like… ) They’re a pair of characters and have me chuckling.. they’re great… πŸ˜€ Such independent not so little guys. free spirits for sure… πŸ˜€
Here’s a recent pic of them chilling early this morning next to the ” Ekata ” painting…
Right time for me go get back to my painting.. I’ve been working on it for most of the day and am really enjoying doing this particular painting… πŸ™‚
Have a magical day/eve… πŸ™‚

  1. Beautiful work, beautiful cats, beautiful you! Enjoying a productive winter I see.
    No reason to stop now. It looks really good. sending peace, Eddie

    • Thank you Eddie.. such lovely kind words yet again from you.. all your feedback over time has and still is very much appreciated… πŸ™‚ I have been on a roll where possible.. but have had a few issues on the health front… I’m due to see a vascular surgeon etc very soon.. so hopefully all will be resolved and I’ll be able to go full throttle again… πŸ™‚ I’m really enjoying working on my ” Ekata ” painting though and have already got 2 more in mind.. a Pegasus fire horse and a bird of paradise… I’ll be painting them onto hexagon canvasses like I’ve used for the ” Ekata ” painting… It’s funny Eddie.. I decided to slow down and catch up with friends etc and as if by magic.. they have all appeared at my house at various times.. even friends I’d not seen in a while… I’ve rested up etc too and the benefits are beginning to show now… Hopefully I’ll be able to resume heavier work on the gardens and my workshop finally once these issues are resolved… I must admit.. the thought fills me with excitement.. I have so many ideas now to try out… πŸ˜€ My sleep pattern’s still not great.. hence I’m wide awake now in the early hours.. I utilise the time by painting though… It’s actually a good time to paint.. as there’s no interruptions… πŸ™‚ Right on that note.. my ” Ekata ” awaits..! πŸ˜€ Have a wonderful day and big hugs your way.!

      • work is good but it sounds like you need some rest too, don’t forget to take care of yourself. if sleep is difficult, try meditation.
        hugs, Eddie

      • You’re spot on Eddie.. I’ve never taken a break really.. barring a couple of holidays a few years back.. even they weren’t really a break… :/ I just end up getting bored and my mind meanders back to the creative stuff and I’m on it again… :/ I’ve lived and breathed it for as long as I can remember.. so I find it almost impossible to leave it alone.. as my mind just has constant ideas… πŸ˜€ Ah well I DO try and God loves a trier… πŸ˜€ Where sleep’s concerned.. there was no chance of sleep in my childhood.. night time was a time of vigil for me.. I still have to have my lights on to this day and I’ve never had a sleep pattern as such… It’s ok now though.. as I just flow with it.. but when the children were growing up.. it meant I rarely slept at all and that left me totally burned out and very poorly in the end… ( I was in permanent fight or flight mode… ) Anyway on a brighter note.. the ” Ekata ” painting is coming along beautifully… One of my friends called in too and we ended up playing with watercolours.. that was fun and I have two little pictures to refine today… πŸ˜€ Life lessons taught me to value even the tiniest of things… Even as a child and being born in the inner city where it resembled a concrete jungle.. I’d watch tiny creatures.. how they worked together and flowed with their surroundings.. like ants for instance.. what clever hard working little creatures they are..! Many other little worlds going on right under everyone’s noses.. I noted too that nobody really saw any of it.. people looked at the pavements instead of the sky if you know what I mean… My mind always searched for the beauty… No matter how tiny a place it resided… You’ll always find it if you look closely enough… πŸ™‚ My mind’s always been ” away with the faeries.. I was regularly told my head was full of magic and they were spot on..! πŸ˜‰ On that note.. my painting’s await! πŸ˜€ Thank you again for your kind words.. it’s very much appreciated and I wish you and yours a wonderful magical day… πŸ™‚ Big hugs your way..!

    Do you have insomnia too? Me too!!! Am unsure if this is leftover rememnants from my ptsd days or if i enjoy the freedom that nightime brings . Hope you are ok i did come here the other week but couldnt access your blog.

    • Hi PG, πŸ™‚ Thank you firstly for the lovely feedback.. it’s really appreciated… πŸ™‚ Secondly.. it’s great to hear from you and I really hope you’re ok… I did have my site set to private for a short while.. but it’s been open since the beginning of Dec.. so don’t know what happened there.. or maybe I can guess eh….. same old springs to mind there if you know what I mean… Regarding insomnia.. I’ve never known a full night’s sleep.. I feel it’s a legacy where I’m concerned… Sometimes I wish I could just sleep for one full night.. but that’s never happened.. so I started to use the time constructively a long time ago… πŸ™‚ The advantage of it.. is there’s no interruptions from anyone.. so it’s a great time to get creative and just get lost in my own little world… I’m so grateful for my creativity you know.. it’s counterbalanced everything that’s happened in my life… It’s been the healing of many emotional wounds and I really feel for anyone who doesn’t have the precious gifts that were bestowed on me.. I know how lucky I am… I’ve actually just started having creative sessions here with some friends.. just watercolour painting at present… It seems to be taking off though and is very fulfilling for all concerned.. especially for me… πŸ™‚ I love passing on my knowledge… πŸ™‚ I wish you were nearer and you could have joined us… You also have a beautiful gift there.. I see an amazingly strong.. courageous beautiful minded person.. helping many overcome mind blowing stuff and I wish you a bright a wonderful future.. you deserve it… πŸ™‚ Big hugs your way..!
