Trying to make sense of Ado-less-sense

Posted Feb 2009

A wild party. Loud music, small space, lots of kids being encouraged to 'dance' (jump around and wiggle) by the dj. On the one hand, I wonder what it is that we're teaching them. On the other hand, I wonder if we're not teaching them anything anyway - we're just enabling them to do the things that kids naturally do.

Here are some of the pictures I drew. My natural tendency is to question things, but through this job of working at Parties, I've learned to give it up and just observe.

Emotions

Posted Feb 2009

I felt sad tonight. I had been so grateful for the good things in my personal life for so many months in a row now, with no break. Add that to my happy party attitude (It's my job), and I had been glued/frozen into happies. The sad actually felt good

  • relaxing.

Lol - as soon as I noticed that I liked the feeling, it lost its power. I am now just calm. Neither ecstatic nor crummy. Maybe we all have to feel all the emotions. For balance.

I went through some of my photographs.

Here are some from an Adult Corporate Party. I felt like the people were just there because they thought they had to be. Still, I got some good reactions out of them with my Pictures:

And here are some pictures from a Child's Party. It was a last-minute deal, and it was hard to fit in before another Party that I was already committed to. But I'm so glad I did. I was pleasantly surprised and really appreciated by people who treated me so well. Some of my clients are so sensitive and kind. Coming across these photos tonight, when I'm thinking about emotions -- made me think about how we all did things to make each other feel happy, appreciated, wanted. Hmmmm.

At Yoga, they recommend coming from a neutral place - so we're not constantly changing because of our fickle ups and downs.

Oil Painting Step-by-Step

Posted Feb 2009

I took photos as I did an Oil-Painted Chiarascuro today. Since I'm developing this new technique for Oil-Painted Caricatures, I took photos so I could remember the process.

First, I penciled thumbnails on paper until I got an idea of what I wanted to paint. Then:
