Talking heads, the person inside the person, “taming the monkey mind” as Pema Chodron, a buddhist monk would say. Were the thoughts swirling in my head as this painting called to me. It started with a gelli printed background and the heads were floating there above those blocky bodies and the concept of the words swirling in those heads, the smaller somehow part of the larger became the painting….lean in and connect.
Jenny over at Texterial was speaking about squirrel brain this week, we must have been on the same wavelength. Give her a visit and see what her take on this whole monkey/squirrel brain thing was all about and her wonderful stitched collage mixed media work. What’s swirling in your monkey mind…….? Tell me do….
