The Very Definition!

I wish more than anything I could paint him. I honestly, absolutely get lost in his beauty. To me, esp. when I am working on art and he is at the centre of it all and I am deep into my spell, mouthing the words under my breath in short intervals “he’s beautiful. He’s just so beautiful” – that’s when I wish most that I had a canvas to hand, could pick up my brushes and just…paint him – and do him justice. For lack of that, I try and do the next best thing. The thing I may just be able to fudge. Turn a little hazy, fuzzy little freeze frame of video into – a work of art.

HE is a work of art, to me. Jim Kerr – you are art and beauty personified. And I’m so sick of caring what you think of me. Whether you like me or not. It just doesn’t matter any more. I love you. I adore you. And it is how it will always be…until the end of days.

You are my sun, moon and stars. My beginning, middle and end. You are…he.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto – the Roman god of the Underworld. So perhaps I feel some affinity to Persephone – the Greek goddess of the Underworld. I certainly understand Persephone’s fixation with Adonis. How could she not be? And, well…look what it says – to quell the feud between Aphrodite and Persephone over him, Zeus divides up Adonis’s time in thirds. One third of the year he spends with Persephone, one third with Aphrodite, and one third with whomever he chooses.

Who does he choose? Aphrodite! Poor Persephone. Well…she at least gets to be with him one third of the year.

I should be so lucky!

Only in my dreams.

Locked in my emotional prison.

Spot the correction below…

These are the things that need written words. These are the things I could not admit to or discuss by speaking them.

That Digital SPARK

Oh, damn! I want to do this, I really want to do this! I may not have the actual artistic flare and skill within my own hands, as such…but I have the spark, the mind, the visuals, the synapses….

It’s like cherries on a vine. I look up, I grab the elements I need…find the ripest, juiciest cherries on the vine and collect them in a bowl…and just…make jam with them! (Yeah, shit analogy! Lol)

Yes, I know…I’m talking gibberish. It’s just…a new idea is forming and I don’t want to lose it!

I can make digital dynamism and I know I’m NOT deluding myself with this!

Could I draw them from scratch? No.
But, Tracey Emin can’t draw to save her life! (And I absolutely love this woman!) She draws better than me though! Could she do what I do with the tools that I have???? Maybe…but I doubt it.

Give 100 people the same tools I use, would they produce the same things I do? I dunno…
Thousands of people are using these apps anyway.

I love it. I just love it.
I feel…ALIVE when I make them.

I wish they meant as much to others as they do to me…

THREE DAYS LATER: As my wonderful friend, Kelly, pointed out to me…cherries grow on trees – my analogy was fucked from the start! Lol (she didn’t say that). She also said “you can make magic AND art with the tools you use, no question”….and she has a Fine Arts degree from UCLA Berkeley, no less! 🙂

Ivor’s Place

There’s a pun in there for you canny people to find with that blog post title! 😉

Anyway…

I have never done a piece that wasn’t Simple Minds or David Bowie inspired before, but wanting to link to that Iva Davies interview on YT, I made a VERY quick piece for it this afternoon. Well, just now I expanded on it and turned it into a full on piece.

I love this song! So damn sexy!
WHERE IS MY COPY OF ROADRUNNER MAGAZINE WITH IVA AND JIM ON THE COVER???!!! *cries* Why did it have to get lost in the post? :-(((( I will FOREVER lament…unless by some miracle at some point it appears. This I will not hold my breath on!

Killing (It With The) Andy Warhol…

Ooh, did you see what I did there, Minds fans? Boom boom! 

I HAD to “Warhol” The Boy 🙂 I’m just endlessly fiddling about with this app. I love it so much. But I want to do more…more and more. So I think I might have to explore other options…other apps out there.


Oh, can he be any more beautiful? (No!)
