Photo of the Moment

August 26th, 2015

Today, Aug. 26 is my 39th birthday. 39 years! I’m old! I’m young! It just keeps going and the wheel just keeps spinning… What a year… ups, downs, all arounds. I mean it. Growing, changing, rearranging… I sold “The Glass Onion”, “Limits”, and “Remembering”! I made a beautiful commissioned painting about Love. And, in the midst of that crucible, I learned a whole whole lot about love. This past year, Violet and I started going to a climbing gym several days a week along with other serious life, health, and patterning decisions. There has been pain, pleasure, and a lot of in between. I loved, lost, and loved again and again. It’s been a year, that’s for sure. I’m pretty sure Violet is done with Grad School (that’s a trek!). We went to Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia and made great art. We – this holy sacred we – has had a lot of work on it over the past year. It’s more. It’s different. It’s better. And it just keeps getting better. I realized that 40 was around the corner. So I took stock to see where things are at – in me, around me – and see where I’m steering this ship. There are great things in the past. There are great things coming. There are great things here now. I’m grateful for the support… the endless support. I’m so grateful for dawns and days and nights. For nourishment and safety. I’m grateful for all of the love. It inspires and ignites me. It pushes me onwards. ***
Thank you for sharing in it.

This painting, thought it is not quite done yet (it’s part of the collection of pieces I’ve been working on through the summer), seems fitting for the moment. It stemmed from a flash of an idea last September. A year later… here it is. And it’s how I feel sometimes. Just ripping these layers off. shedding… unfolding… “Molting”

“There is Time Enough Yet To Take Another Path” top half. 2006. 48″ x 32″. That summer we had travelled through Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. We were waiting for a bus in Belize in the morning, drinking coffee, dressed clean, casual, not touristy (of course!) but still… Anyways: in the divide between the streets a.bedraggled mom was selling newspapers while her young son was throwing rocks at his sister, both dressed in rags. She just stood there watching us. We were so close and miles apart. I spent a lot of time thinking about that: patterns and habits, intentions and intuition, the paths we take… Or don’t. And I painted this painting after we got back. #Guatemala #Belize #painting #visionaryart #michaeldivine #acrylicpainting #colormyworld #art

I like sharing these pieces of this puzzle. So many strongly disparate elements make up a whole. All the threads form a tapestry and the tapestry is…… To be revealed :) #visionaryart #michaeldivine #acrylicpainting #colormyworld #art #crystal #fractal #refraction #prism
