At Thirty I Fail Abstinence

Could I get anymore obvious? Doubt it. This was sooo fun I'm thinking series. Next I will do: I will abstain from sex with I don't want to say it because it might attract the wrong attention.

The Quest: A Mushroom Of A Labyrinth, Ye Gads.

Ok So who said questing was easy? I may have thought that at first but I was wrong. Questing is tough and usually at some point you're going to hit a brick, or in this case a rock wall. But, once you get past that and focus your intent, concentrate, move through the labyrinth - Heck, do it a few times maybe like 5 or 6 trust me it'll get you somewhere. You'll be able to move back out into the world a new person full of, I don't know, motivation or inspiration or something then Bango! you'll be free and zooming around surrounded by pretty lights and whatever else your imagination can conjure up.

The Quest: Dying Bear at the Railway Tracks

Maps, dreams, mountains and a bear I once saw at the railway tracks, not quite dead, pulling itself accross the road. It was hit by a truck. Now when I draw bears I often include 'X's for the railway sign... it wasn't conscious this time, I just wanted to cover up a mess in the corner.

WoWsers I am late. This is like a Rorschach ink blot. I caked on the oil and pressed the two blocks together to clone an unidentified creature drawing and heart shape. Leslie Wiegand

CAKE (detail)

LATE! CAKE!! Tell me about it. This painting tortures me, it is big and in my living-room staring me down every night. So all we get's is a detail and maybe by next year I will finish it. I started the reflection entry but I have to wait for some oil to dry on that one... soon my pretties!! I am glad you're all holding the fort here, your art is blowing my mind!

Theme #6: Reflection

Everyday we are all faced with reflections whether we like them or not. So why not examine them further in our artwork. It's not like they don't get tossed and turned and puzzled over in our heads continuously. Maybe this'll help us let go of some of them or see them more clearly or who knows...just draw.

The Eye Love You Monster Cake

I'm so late and I meant to actually draw but, designed this cake instead and it didn't need to be made until today for a cake walk. It's made of orange cake mix, vanilla icing, red sugar crystals and grape string candy. Eeeeek.

Ha ha ha, I am so glad I am the only one who hasn't posted! Maybe I will drag this out till next week. Does someone want to post a new idea or just take this one 2 weeks?

Cake: You had my heart and ate it too.

Bad Credit

4th entry by Leslie: Oh boy, I am not sure I should get in to how this relates to the topic. Let me just say I was thinking about credit as I painted this. It was going to be a big monster, symbolizing credit, where I can curl up inside, living comfortably. Apparently, it's not as romantic a scenario as I had originally thought. Amen.

Sweetly Dwelling

Leslie Wiegand: 3rd Entry on Dwelling
Another last minute bail out painting. I started a larger piece of work which of course wasn't finished and slowly drifted away from the topic.
This one's about dwelling in my camper. Dwelling seems impermanent, like not a home, like a stagnant cesspool, catch my drift? What's on the outside is curious and scary.

Perfect Day

Leslie Wiegand: 1st entry on perfection
The truth is I have been working on this for weeks, and just can't get no satisfaction. It seems to me that every new mark is shitastic. I should have left it at the beginning when it looked more like a Rorschach inkblot test. Anyways, someone help me. Is it done? Any suggestions? I promised myself I would take this to Rebel Rebel to hang for sale TODAY...

Blue Christmas

Leslie Wiegand: 2nd entry.
When Geneva suggested memories or isolation, I thought I would just paint another old 60's slide. But no, to keep it real my subject is from Xmas 2006. This small painting depicts the view from my camper... damp, cold, tiny, lonely camper. I lived here a few months in my Aunt's driveway, overlooking Victoria with its large sequoia decorated with lights.
