Twig Spells, Singleton, Outsider Art

TWIG SPELL
Outsider Hippie Woman Art
(c) Singleton
SOLD

We went there,
laughing,
stumbling,
gathering twigs and rocks and shells...

And lost ourselves...

Wandering
deeper and
deeper into the woods....

Until the only way back
was to follow the
trail of broken
twigs and rocks and shells....

To build a cocoon
from the debris....

gathering my twigs & heart-shaped rocks, trying to find my way back to me...so I can be free of this wretched old cocoon made out of spent lies & flat backwash.

ILY & I love this piece.

Oh sweet child, tear out of it, unfold those beautiful wings and fly! Follow the trail back to peace, and then build your own cocoon, woven with heart shaped rocks and treasured shells, wish-bone twigs and flannel threads....it will be a beautiful place, warm and strong and open armed. It will be your world. ILYSVVM

Oh QueenBee! Wish you were gonna be there too~ That would be the absolute greatest! We've been counting these days forever, just waiting! Peace and love to you all.

That's an old Indian trick I use with billy No Shadow when we enter the underworld on our discovery. You know the ancient ways.
Please if you would: tell me what you use to paint....acrylic, pastel-oil or chalk, pencil???

paddy! just back from seven sunrises and seven sunsets, and the endless days and nights between.....spirits for the soul! Most of the stuff here is done with whatever I can put my hands on....cheap! I love love love watercolors and acrylics (the cheap bottle kind, not the "artist" stuff), but believe the brush has to feel like a good bottle of beer! Most of the pictures on Peace are simply drawn on cardstock with grocery store stuff: Colored pencils, lead, colored markers and ink.....whatever I can get my little fingers on! Everynow and then you'll see a little tea bag smudge, a little cigarette ash cloud, a little something out of the make-up bag...Ooops here I am blabbering on and on and see your email! Watch out, I can go on forever........
peace paddy.......

All of this is so well written, its just beautifull! The art work is stunning--it would be wonderful to create to this as inspiration. Do the poems go with the paintings when you sell them?

singleton said...

eric...they just hang here....

like past lives......

eric313 said...

well, at least they get to stay with you. The art and the poetry. This poetry really can't be tied into one word. It's what it is.

they're paper kites...go where they will, but their rememberances are posted here forever....and when I visit, it's deja vue.....
