BLOOD VEINS

My most recent mosaic ‘Blood Veins’. Upon my return from India, I realized my innate need to look at my “self” through new lenses. And so.. it’s been clear to me to revisit ”foundation”. Not just as an artist, but on a soul level and what better way than with mosaic (with a whole lot of reflection/meditation, and music too). 

This particular piece is made of various stones from around the Earth, some of which are no longer available. ‘Blood Veins’ was is my workload for the entire summer season of 2019. I started using a template of the guitar given to me around the age of seven by one of my Grandfathers. The Sea of waves featured are indicative of the wealth of flavors and experiences along my path and the dimensional frequencies and events explored past, present, future. At one point while working on the fret board, I decided to completely redo it- realizing how it was mirroring my own tune-up, a work in progress. I could write indefinitely about the feelings that came up, the colors, the expressions that are woven into this work. It took me much longer than I ever thought, but hey.. It was worth the time, energy, patience, and love. 

I trust this will reach the rightful person and resonate well for their own good reasons. I’m humbled and grateful to put this kind of time in and stoked for where things are going along my path as an artist, as a human, as a spec of stardust, as a member of this great big family. I’m also very grateful to those I get to work with, make music with, share yoga with, and to my friend and brother William and his family for allowing me this space and time for the process!
