I don’t know what rabbit hole I went down online and discovered the work of dancer, choreographer Momo Sanno. What a find. I am really moved by his work. And by what he writes about the work.
“… it’s very difficult to stay right here, where you are, to see the colours in front of your eyes without judging them, to listen to the music, to the sound of your own foot steps. To be here with the current self – with your body, with your mind, with your spirit and with your feelings.
You story is unique and is worth discovering your rhythm of life, it’s worth spending time to discover who you are, why you are doing this, which direction you are going to…”
This portrait was inspired by a photo on Momo’s site. You can view his dancing here.
The state fair is over people. And you know what that means. Winter is coming. Relishing some last bits of color…
Waiting for Spring to arrive in Minnesota. It’s been bleak here on the tundra. No snow, endless landscape in shades of grey and brown.

Wistfully remembering my month in Hawaii, on the Big Island with Zoe. Wondering if I should work my sketches into larger paintings. I was so all over the place, people, landscape, flowers…my new friends; Ugly Pig and Gimpy Chicken. And the colors are so different than I am use to seeing.
Churches are not this color in Minneapolis!
I do love these fields of green. Site of ancient taro fields, North Kohala.

Ugly Pig and his best friend Gimpy Chicken. This 8 year old arthritic chicken flew the coup. Ran off to the pig pen where this “tamed” wild pig lives. They live together like a crabby old married couple.

Yes, still drawing! Just behind on posting. I’ve taken a new turn in subject matter. Super intrigued right now about painting friends.
