Good Morning folks from the 1st June 2021 in Donegal … where it is a rainy day … but with lots of love from Buddy, Mena and me. Here is my first of 21 suns for June 2021 … and here’s to bringing out some inner colour!
This year my art has moved with me into a new sphere, a new dimension. I have begun calling myself a visionary artst for my work now comes from inside more than out. Inspired yes, of course by life and the wonders of nature around me but now spiritually connecting the dots on unseen levels. Paul Gaugain said, ‘I shut my eyes in order to see’ and I see now that the colours and dancing forms behind my closed eyes are connections to a deeper vision. Equally, my dreams as I record them are becoming more and more vivid and clear. More on those later!
The idea of the “21 sun salute” is to create 21 separate paintings inspired by the sun’s life giving energy in the run up to the Summer Solstice on the 21st June 2021. Just below you can see the first video I made on instagram to start off this project. I’m feeling very inspired by this, compelled by a force beyond my understanding as this is going to be a huge challenge.. usually it takes me many weeks to complete each painting, often months, sometimes years and so I surrender to the flow of what may come over the next 21 days. I will keep updating with new blog posts for each piece of artwork I produce, but you can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook.
