Souls With Voice


©Cherilyn SunRidge, “Forest Listening,” 24″x24,” Acrylic on Cotton Canvas

We listen, wherever we are, to chatter or rhythms or fantastic air -mobiles, and all sounds feed us.  Neither here nor there, neither wrong or right, sound injects into us and informs us.  Our voice, internal or external, influences the environment.  This is all a two-way, round-about, give and take, cause and effect.  I invite your treasured voice to sing out, your daily stutterings and your daily rejoicings to find their avenues of expression.  Why not?

Chaos, Order, Chaos, Order

I am re-reading Nick Bantock’s “The Forgetting Room.”  The pages are replete with short phrases, rich and deep, relevant to life and art.

One such provocation is the memory of the grandfather guiding the grandson as the lad worked to resolve an issue with his drawing.  He applied watercolor wash, yet it looked sugary to him, too nice.  From his memory bank, Grandfather speaks:

“Chaos, order, chaos, order recurring …..there is a difference between a study and a painting.  Rough up the ground.  Then you can begin growing your picture……The result was a mess, though not an unpleasant one.  I ‘humphed’ aloud and deserted it to dry by itself.”

Just some insight into a painting process.  Now, I am headed into my painting cave!  Sending Light!  Cherilyn
