May the Force Be With You

'We Are Stardust' Assemblage with Acrylic paint
©robin r kent
Even though this holiday season isn't going the way I expected, I still feel its unassuming, familiar spirit this time of year. Maybe it's the early darkness that gives focus to the bigger picture, or maybe it's the stillness that accompanies it. Whichever, it dwarfs my energy with its magnitude, and I like that.
A similar judgement is used when choosing subjects for my next piece. I consider different traits: some grandiose, some meek. I had done a few pieces - assemblage and paintings - of a mystical nature a while ago and it was surprisingly rewarding. Might be time to revisit that, especially this season.
Will try to put it on my 'to do' list. Before the springtime comes.

I don't like the shorten hours of sunlight. I don't like getting up in the dark and then driving home from work in the dark. All I want to do is curl up under the covers and sleep and not think about anything. Which would be a good idea right now since I'm sick with the flu!
But even in my Nyquil drugged-induced state, I can still enjoy and love your newest creation.

Aww, Cindi, I like the longer days too. I wrote this post in the middle of the night when I was aware of a strong stillness- maybe force?- around me in the room. But in the workaday world, it is depressing to get up and go home in the dark. Feel better soon. The flu is no fun.
