The Kore Gallery. But if I get 5 of them completed I'll be happy...this is the first one you see above. After I started beading on the second one, up jumped the mojo, I went to work quilting this...
Between the jockey and my latest music crush, jazz vocalist, Gregory Porter...I was feeling a full immersion art-gasm! The music is fine! but the lyrics are some of the freshest and energizing I've heard since Lizz Wright! Go youtube Porter right now then come back and tell me what you think! I have his Be Good CD and just like I do with Lizz Wright, I want to order all his cds.
I'm also looking for another photo to portray. After spending the Spring and early Summer drawing the jockey almost every day, it wasn't until I did this real fluid drawing that I found some semblance of style that felt good for me to portray realism in. I love it and want to do more of it. I have a photo of my Great Great Grandmother that I'm leaning toward...here it is.
I'm not doing a big Thanksgiving meal this year...just gave myself permission to let go of it a few days ago. After letting that go I thought about my cousins and my Uncle's wife who is a very proud Wampanoag Indian who has never recognized the holiday as it is celebrated...being Native American, the take on Thanksgiving takes on a different perspective. To quote a line by poet Margaret Walker..."let a new earth rise, a new world be born".
