Art: Energetic Release 6 d

”Rob has extraordinary healing gifts. He is fully clairvoyant, clairsentient, and clairaudient. At a young age, he was able to heal animals and communicate with spirits. These gifts were not understood and he learned to ignore them. For over 30 years he worked in corporate America as a highly successful CEO until one day, he received the ultimate “cosmic 2×4.” In that time of ... read more
EcoArt: Printer Magic! 13 d
My old HP Inkjet Printer seems to have developed some creativity recently...is it becoming a sentient machine?
A few days ago, I changed one of the ink cartridges on my old HP printer. The printer went into hibernate mode for a while, then spit out four sheets of printer paper with various patterns on them; in all of the many years I’ve had the printer, it’s never done that. I was told that the printer was just doing a ”test run” of the ink jets, but I think the printer is developing its own artistic style.
I thought the patterns were beautiful, so made art out of three of the sheets:

Art:Creation of the Earth 29 d
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, started the eve of September 9 and ended 48 hours later, on the Eve of September 11, 2018. Rosh Hashanah also celebrates the Birthday of the World. In the middle of Rosh Hashanah, I was inspired to draw my own version of Earth's Creation.
...and, as the Story goes, on the 7th Day, Divine Spirit rested.

Sometimes I have no idea how I’m going to make a piece of art, and one idea chases another. Often it takes more time thinking about what and how to make a piece of art than actually creating it; this one is an example of this process:

Eco Art:Altered Greeting Cards 82 d
Eco Art made with reused greeting cards
I’m sure you’ve received unsolicited greeting cards in the mail from non-profit organizations seeking donations. I get them quite frequently. I keep the cards and when the pile grows too big, pass them along to a non-profit organization that comes around my neighborhood seeking items for resale in their thrift store. However, I really liked the bright colors of these cards from the Jane Goodall Institute*, so I saved them and made my own art out of them.

Art: "Faces of America" 85 d
Large Eco Art piece
”Faces of America” Mixed Media Collage 30” X 22” by mayah(c)2018; sides one and two
This art started out as one piece of off-white paper, 30” X 22”, that I painted with red and blue acrylics a year ago. The paper was then folded in half, then into 8 sections. There is a slit along the main fold; the paper can be used as an art journal book, or a free-standing piece of art. The idea for how I was going to use the painted paper came to me a year ago, yet I didn’t start to collage it until the beginning of this month. I had hoped to finish it in time for July 4th, but the hand ... read more
Doodle Art: "ET Bacteria"/"Entangled" 3 mon
Late at night, too hot to sleep, I've started doing "doodle art" again.
Previous Page, Page 22
I keep a drawing pad and some art pens next to my bed. If I can’t sleep and the ”I wanna do art” bug hits, I take the pad of paper in my lap, close my eyes, and ”doodle” with a pencil. Then the doodle is refined with paint pens and/or colored pencils.
This is a technique I learned years ago from an art therapist as a method of relaxation. It is indeed very relaxing; the problem is that I get so engrossed in the process that I lose all sense of time and when the sun starts peeking through my curtains in the early morning, I’ve realized I’ve been up all night drawing!
