I'd bet it isn't a subject matter you would have expected from me... (and yes, I bought this Teddy Bear specifically)!

A new studio journal entry, I which I question myself about why I don't want a conventional "art career"... 
Lena Levin. Magdalene (after Boris Pasternak). 2014. Why don't I “put myself out there”? The usual accessories of an “art career” — gallery representations, art competitions, solo shows: I neither seek nor want any of this. Why? And, more interestingly perhaps, why this question bothers me at ...

As the year is drawing to a close -- and out of the depth of my slow, painful, and revelatory year review -- I want to share with you this painting -- this beginning of a painting. The last one of 2016, but it will most certainly spill over to 2017. Its title is "Gaia [Self-Portrait] December in Coyote Hills" -- this title just insisted on itself, complete with the punctuation.

And by the way, yes -- December is about the only month when we have the green grass of spring here in California. By February, it is likely to brown... -- but who knows, in this changing climate.

A belated post on Sonnet 94 -- painting lilies as they are to themselves.
Painting sonnet 94: lilies as they are to themselves (October 10-14, 2016). Lena Levin. Sonnet 94: though to itself, it's only live and die. October 2016. They that have power to hurt, and will do none, That do not do the thing they most do show, Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,

The morning after the election... 
Lena Levin. November 9, 2016. I woke up very early today, just after four in the morning. I journaled a bit, and then meditated — one hour instead the usual half-an-hour: although I thought I was calm, the inner turmoil was too powerful. Looked around the internet, and through my inbox — filled ...
