Miles Davis: Kind of Blue…New art and thoughts.

Life is full of ups and downs, and for an artist sometimes the extremes are intense. As I look around the world, it seems that most people are dealing with subjects that make most of our lives look like heaven. I think about my loved ones locked up, my loved ones who aren’t here. It then makes I meditate on how special the ones we have here are. There are spiritual dynamics at works all the time, and the movement of the chakras upward allows I to see how high are we reaching when reasoning and interacting.  My Mind is multi layers that are being worked on and it is the point when the picture is composed that I can show the fullness of the vision. Will it even be fully composed, is a painting or song ever really finished…

I went to a show downtown Albuquerque the other night and someone through a large rock through my window. A thieve came and took all my poetry books, and art prints, my cd’s, and herbal oils and tinctures, my tools,  knife and cash.  Of course it felt terrible, but I had to look at the symbolism of myself in a suitcase, and the Rastaman being proud that he was the creator. And while there may be some addict selling my art on the street right now, I am blessed to know that the prints are copies of the vision, the music same way. Every poem pretty much I recorded even if it was rough, and though priceless, because I believed in the vision it too had been archived. And so I will rewrite the mediations from the songs, print more prints and CD’s,  and continue creating. When I got to my truck to see the glass shattered all over the inside and outside, I held my art pad in my hand and my last pencil, and felt an odd feeling. One of being here before, messed up with nothing but my art..and it was a reminder, that the relationship between an artist and art cannot be stolen and limited. That I am a creator, and as I drove home with freezing air blowing in my face I had to give thanks. That as much as my heart is attacked or robbed, it seems to regenerate and produce so that it can give it more. Without the emptiness I cannot be full, and its purpose is to give and then give some more. The Heart Chakra is one of the hardest channels for alignment. Challenges the levels and layers and looks to see if the composition is orderly,..up-full or down-full.

Miles Davis. Blue.

Miles Davis. Kind of Blue.

With so much going on, some old art came my way that I hadn’t been able to get reproductions of..this is one. In my brothers art private collection, was ” Miles Davis, Kind of Blue.” I got a great photo and now I can share it with you. Miles Davis is such a perfect and powerful artist for when things are tough, his paintings influence me, and his music has changed generations. Like the ghetto, we reflect our conditions, and like the ghetto there is a genius hidden away dancing and singing and painting the inner conflicts of humanity. Even if its kinda blue..
