This is “Big Boogie” – the latest in my music series. I love working large and absolutely love black and white.
I had to play some happy music to get myself energized and “change the channel” from the TV news I had been watching. Scary. I’m not one to bring politics into an art blog but this is not a normal time. I’m hearing that a lot. This time in our history is NOT normal. And my feelings about that are as changeable as the latest tweet or indictment — I am, at various times, sad, hopeful, crying, smiling, dreading, and did I say hopeful? – that this mid-term election in 2018 will bring the change that turns us back into the people I thought we were, and the country I thought I was born into. In five days we will know.
Until then, I am doing my best to stay sane and even help, including canvassing for the first time in my life. (!!!) I am also re-dedicating myself to the work. That is what keeps me balanced through the ups and downs, zigs and zags of life.
