The night sky is so lovely, it changes the landscape so dramatically and in this series of photographs (which I took whilst walking Carly and Marvin with Anders and Dexter) made me think of moonwalks and landings and the freedom of expression that you must experience there with zero gravity.
Then back to earth which I have found can stir the imagination enough!
As some of you might know if you have been following me, my muse for this month is Jean-Michel Basquiat. Since starting my homage to Basquiat on only February 1st, I cannot get him out of my head. I am now dreaming of him. I woke up last night with my mind buzzing with ideas, literally buzzing because (can you believe) I felt like I was having a conversation with him and Warhol in my dream/head about what I could do next to pay homage to him. It was mainly Basquiat, but Warhol felt like he had to add his ideas to the mix too. I woke up so excited at the ideas that were going round in my head, but given it was the wee small hours, I resisted the temptation and went back to sleep. What this dream did do however was join a few dots. You see, to really pay homage, I have to see if I can create something that is not a homage copy to what he has already done! Yep, I need to still do that to really understand it, but I also need to see if I can really pay homage by going beyond that. So I have written the ideas down which went through my dream, and I will see if they work out. In the meantime, I will leave you with another homage to him which I did before this dream experience!!!
