Many of my artworks start out as crude stick-figure sketches. Since these are not terribly detailed, I write notes in the margins to remember what I envisioned. The initial idea here is that the girl's bed is against a wall, and she is reaching up to rip the wall away, like paper, revealing the Moon. The bed is sitting in the grass, maybe with a couple flowers. The mattress could have fluffy blankets and feathers, or else it could be bare... Maybe a bird is flying into her room or has perched itself on the headboard or on the edge of the hole in the wall. There are lots of possibilities, so it's just a matter of seeing what feels good when I'm working and what works aesthetically.

New work: "Lesson"
If you ever watch children run and play, you notice that their joy is completely uninhibited. Fear does not exist. Insecurity does not exist. They throw all of their emotional being into a single experience of elation as the world disappears around them. Do you remember what that's like? It's a rush. Every cell of your body feels it. In adulthood, however, it somehow gets suppressed. People look at you funny if you act giddy or childlike, as if we're not supposed to feel that way anymore. I think we need a lesson. I think we need to remove the layer of protective varnish ~ or steel ~ from our hearts and learn how to let loose again, to dance and sing and welcome in moments of joy while we're still here on this beautiful planet, instead of pushing it all aside because we're too busy adulting. What do you do to play? (I have been teaching myself hoop dancing!)

"Lesson" joins "Gift" and "Truce" as the first three pieces in "The Menagerie" series, with more works to be added. The pieces depict one-on-one interactions with animals.

Just a peek at a new work... As some of you know, I tend to do things backwards: instead of consciously deciding to create an artwork about something, the artwork develops more organically, its story/ies to be discovered only after it's finished and I sit down to contemplate it. Totally crushing on magenta shades lately. Now I want a pink couch. And maybe a pink front door. :)

"Against Time" ⏳ It is a common perception that, as we age, time passes faster and faster. We know this isn't true; time doesn’t change but for unnoticeable milliseconds over the centuries as the Moon gradually pulls away from the Earth. However, if we're not careful, the days ~ and years ~ can seemingly pass in a blink, making it feel like we are at Time’s mercy. It got me thinking about one of my favorite topics: our power to make choices. What if something as simple as a choice, as simple as forming a new habit or perspective, could actually help slow down time? Being aware. Paying attention. Enjoying the moments. Maybe it's not Time's fault. Maybe it is we who need to slow down... http://www.elisabethonearth.com/#/against-time/
