EXPAND the POSSIBLES new Blog Site

You know what it is like when the clock chimes at 2.30am and you have been awake for hours, you can't get back to sleep, sooo... you switch the computer on and you plan a new blog site!
Well ... that is what I did this morning...
This new blog is designed for those of you who are into 'challengers'...only this is not a challenge as we know it. I provide very obscure words that I have gleaned from the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY and you take whatever word you would like to use and "expand the possibilities"!
There is no time for you to develop on image, but when you have done so... add it to your blog and then write a comment on the EXPAND blog and we will then be able to see what 'possibles' you have created.
I will keep on adding obscure words, so make sure that you keep on checking to see what arises!
Here is the link....
Have fun, I do hope that you will join in. I look forward to seeing your "possibles"!

Three Muses: Blue

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.

Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,

Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.
Don McLean.

Needed to share this with all my Artistic Friends!

Letters To An Artist~

In 1903, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke responded by letter to a young man seeking his advice. Rilke eventually wrote ten letters now collectively known and much published as "Letters to a Young Poet." They are heartfelt advice from a successful (but still struggling) artist to another who was deeply mired in self-doubt. The classic language of these letters soars in beauty as well as lofty good sense. His idealism is applicable today to all who might pursue any sort of creative activity. Here, are some of Rilke's ideas:

Your work needs to be independent of others' work.

You must not compare yourself to others.

No one can help you.

You have to help yourself.

Criticism leads to misunderstandings and defeatism.

Work from necessity and your compulsion to do it.

Work on what you know and what you are sure you love.

Don't observe yourself too closely, just let it happen.

Don't let yourself be controlled by too much irony.

Live in and love the activity of your work.

Be free of thoughts of sin, guilt and misgiving.

Be touched by the beautiful anxiety of life.

Be patient with the unresolved in your heart.

Try to be in love with the questions themselves.

Love your solitude and try to sing with its pain.

Be gentle to all of those who stay behind.

Your inner self is worth your entire concentration.

Allow your art to make extraordinary demands on you.

Bear your sadness with greater trust than your joy.

Do not persecute yourself with how things are going.

It's good to be solitary, because solitude is difficult.

It's good to love, because love is difficult.

You are not a prisoner of anything or anyone.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) was born in Czechoslovakia and died in Switzerland. Dogged by fragile health and the constant search for inexpensive and healthful accommodation, he anxiously moved from one climate to another. Considered the greatest modern poet in the German language, Rilke counselled the young poet, known only as Mr. Kappus, over a five-year period. No evidence exists that they ever met.

Collage Obsession: Pets

BIG Trouble.
I knew you would get me in trouble for painting the grafitti on the wall!

Take a Word: Birdlife

Back from Extinction.
My deepest concern is that there seems to be a huge list of birds and animals on the verge of distinction or have gone.
What will be left for our future generation to admire and be intrigued by?
The work done by naturalists all over the world, needs to be applauded and supported.
Bring them all back from the edge of extinction.

Take a Word: Exotic

Exotic Kitsane!
In my other art life... this is what I do!! I create and make wearable art, not the type of wearables that you would wear to the supermarket...more performance art.
Kitsane was acquired by the "World of Wearable Art" in Nelson, New Zealand. This museum has 12 of my costumes that they display periodically!!
