My OCD is back with a vengeance. When I get like this the only thing I can do is pick up a pen and paper. It calms me right down. I draw because I cannot meditate like this with too much jiggety inside me. That’s what these inks have in them, a whole lot of jiggety.
Jiggety is probably my metabilism doing cart wheels, maybe my monkey mind somer-saulting….I don’t know, I don’t care. I turn out some damn good jiggeties when I need to let go.
So this ink is titled….JIGGETY
14 x 17 acrylic, ink, pencil, graphite on paper
This 20×16″ oil painting is part of my Dance of Life series.
About the Optimism of Color Blog
For 365 days, I am posting a photo or piece of art that I have created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.
Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
