WOW!! Psychedelic Baby!! Great colors and rivoting swirls!! I love this and the horse with that magic eye!!! Austin Powers..........That was out for years before I saw it and I just absolutely loved it!! Saw the second before the first and then had to see the first!!
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Yes, I thought Austin Powers would be to slap stick, but whea I finally saw it I loved it also!!!
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
EXACTLY what I thought!! The same with Galaxy Quest!! Kids kept saying...watch it, watch it!! You will love it,.....I gave in!!.....I did and had the best laugh and still do. I bought it and added it to my few thousand others as I like to be able to go and pick and watch just what I feel like at that moment, and no adds!!!...The great blessing about aging is......that after a few years, old movies become brand new all over again.........nearly...lol!! We see different things each time!!....Some I wonder, Have I ever seen this?, ...and then some....I remember nearly it all!! Funny how the mind works in such mysterious ways..............
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Yes our selective memories can have a mind of their own! And then we look for that file in our brain , and it was filed in a place we dont remember or can access. Then we need to take a break to re-boot our brain LOL
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
the old...'Whatsaname....or ..K.R,A,F,T...or too much informatio!! .I think that is why we are all artists,....to get a rest from the brain.!!.....Haven't you surely thought, I wish I could take this out and have a rest from it for awhile!! lol.......paint paint paint.....Actually I learnt over the years that no point worrying about things....as it doesn't solve anything, it just js a thief that wastes your time. Knowing that each new day coming is all brand new and untouched, makes me go to bed very happy about that!!. I think it is amazing that we wake up....lol..
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Your right on Em, creating is freeing up the mind and does access that part of our brain that is free! LOL. And why worry , its a waste of mind space, as often things work out and we've waste beautiful time on worry, live in the moment, art places us in the present which is a gift! Thanks for reminding me about that thief Em!

...When we do find out that materialism is just that also in the same kind of form, and I tell people that when you buy something, you either want it or need it because either way know that it is going to the dump oneday...lol!! Maybe need is a better choice, or otherwise just clutter!!.....I must search for that book written by a Afro American who learnt to read and write at age 98!! He wrote a book and he said that all that one needs in life, is one outfit and a spare, a plate, cup, knife fork and a spoon. And think about it.....imagine what he saw through all the peace and wars...so, how inspirational is that and if I hear people complaining......I tel them that story..lol!!
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
I complained because I had no shoes till I saw a man with no Feet! Right on Em, I use need and want as a barometer, the body is our carriage, it's not who we are. ;-)

Aww that is a definite benchmark. Mine was going to a Christmas Party at the Royal Childrens Hospital with all the Leukemia Kids...as my friends daughter had it .....ALL of these hundreds of children, some bald headed some with hair, had this amazing joy and happiness radiating from those wonderful smilies... and they blew me away.....I had to leave the room, gather myself and go back in . Most of them knew they were dying,.... as this was 20 yrs ago..How beautiful they were.....and I still get tears to think about it. My friends daughter Emma was one of the few to survive, Her mum was a wiz and alternate treatments. !!..I have told a few people that one too when they are feeling sorry for themselves. My kids used to come and ask me permission for whatever, and if they knew it might be suss and so did I, I would would say.!!! If you ask me something, there is a 50% chance I will say no, so if you don't want to maybe hear that, then don't ask me.,,,,.or why did you ask me.lol! It worked wonderfully and no drama!! That is it for a lot of things...and people get sooo upset!! The odds of life,,,,
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Ah Em....You make me laugh and cry! Great story, and I like the 50% don't ask, LOL You have some jewels!
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
Well we all live in a palace.....just have to get the vines under control so we can see the jewels..lol!!

Mel Rosado - Over 30 days ago
Wow I totally see what you mean about the Flooow! :) so so cool! They say its an unwritten and almost uncontiously act to implement the fibonacci sequence into artwork. There's def more to art than pretty lines and color. Thank you for sharing this :)
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Thank you Mel, you are very good with words besides art! Yes, this piece started with a few colors tubed on canvas, then with a rag, swirled and blending, totally lost in the movement. Then as the image appear I went with it. I was breaking out of a relationship and found it very transforming. I'm please you read the unconscious intent! By the way , I loved your bio, you true artist!
Josh Dial - Over 30 days ago
