Want to learn how to use colour to express emotions? What to know yourself and your emotions better? Colour-charting is my answer!

Painting Emily Dickinson this week -- click for a larger image and "close reading" comments on the poem.
Lena Levin. The Brain is just the weight of God. After Emily Dickinson. In progress. The Brain—is wider than the Sky— For—put them side by side— The one the other will contain. With ease—and You—beside—. The Brain is deeper than the sea— For—hold them—Blue to Blue— The one the other will absorb—

With this blog post, I re-launch my "Art of Seeing" site, and its core course, "The making of a painting masterpiece". I've been working this whole week on redesigning and them both! Please have a look, tell me what you think, and share with your friends (if they are interested in things like that, of course).

On reading and painting sonnet 92 -- on love and life being the same thing, really...

#sonnetsincolour #Shakespeare
But do thy worst to steal thyself away, For term of life thou art assured mine; And life no longer than thy love will stay, For it depends upon that love of thine. Then need I not to fear the worst of wrongs, When in the least of them my life hath end. I see a better state to me belongs

Painting in the park today... As I was packing up, a lady told me that they were going to have a peace rally there today -- beginning with a walk across the lake, and followed by an interfaith prayer of nine different religious groups.

Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now;
Now, while the world is bent my deeds to cross,
Join with the spite of fortune, make me bow,
And do not drop in for an after-loss:
Ah! do not, when my heart hath 'scaped this sorrow,
Come in the rearward of a conquered woe;
Give not a windy night a rainy morrow,
To linger out a purposed overthrow.
If thou wilt leave me, do not leave me last,
When other petty griefs have done their spite,
But in the onset come: so shall I taste
At first the very worst of fortune's might;
   And other strains of woe, which now seem woe,
   Compared with loss of thee, will not seem so.

William Shakespeare. Sonnet 90. #sonnetsincolour
Lena Levin. Sonnet 90 (preliminary photo). Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now; Now, while the world is bent my deeds to cross, Join with the spite of fortune, make me bow, And do not drop in for an after-loss: Ah! do not, when my heart hath 'scaped this sorrow,

What does it take to be an artist?

An awful lot, to be sincere...

If you are interested in my take on it, here are some thoughts in this week's essay on "Art of Seeing"...
