Happy Thanksgiving Sweet Luvs!

It was a fabulous rejuvenating day! I spent a good chunk of time creating in illustrator. I am exploring the subconscious higher energy, meditating and letting the spirit move me. 

What a wonderful saying: ”Let the spirit move you.” My art students when wanting direction of creating something- would get that response from me.

Today I had an idea, I started with the checker board mermaid tail. From there it went crazy on me. For the life of me- the creation couldn’t decide on what it wanted to be. It was as if the energy was pinging and excited and flowing so incredibly that I kept creating and kept going back to the first tail…Maybe the first tale…first tell?
Laughing at my own silly words.

It was an exploration in playing and distorting then letting the over lapping layers become what they needed and wanted to become.

I love the abstract over lapping designs, as well as the spiraling geometry and of course the head type shapes are nice as well. I wonder which one speaks to you? And why?

Play. Just go outside and play. Do not have any intention- other than playing. Embrace the play- love the play- be the play.

That is all. (grinning) Nawh…(leaning in to kiss you on the forehead) There- now—run away with yourself…be wild…and play.

Life is amazing!! 

The connected thoughts and synchronicity is happening all over and around me. 

Lightning bolts striking at night.

Over the ocean.

The passionate waters becoming the woman.

Alive! She is Alive!

57_4. Flowing free.

Original art created by Judith Parsons 2017 San Francisco
Did I say Free

I have been listening to the Deepak and Oprah 21 day meditation for the past 2 weeks and they are glorious. Learning and letting the flow of energy gather and swirl and move like fluidity has been delicious.

There is another layer to life now. Being purposeful is a fabulous place to be. Learning how to also manage time throws me higher toward the summit of myself.

You see, this new connected place—here in Facebook land and google land makes life very interesting. The borders are gone. if we are brave enough we can meet hundreds of people and connect to the point of exhaustion.

It is a choice. Or you can choose people who resonate with you. People who like the same things you like, people who have a similar disposition, people who are on the same “wave” length.

That bring me to the art I created for this blog. I met some fine folk this year, one in particular introduced me to writing 20 minutes every morning. Thank you Terri, (waving and smiling), for that incredible advice. I have recently decided to give myself an hour a morning to create art. I do not go in with any planned drawing. It just rises to the surface.

This particular art flowed from the meditation series I have been doing. Freedom. Flowing. Flowing. Were whispers from Deepak…so this art was born.

We are all flowing and transforming with the watery world today! Enjoy! Splash in puddles! Find reflections in the still puddles…take photos..become Escher for a day! Love you guys!

57_3. Margaret Art Teacher Extraordinaire!!

Original art created by one-of-a-kind artist Margaret Parsons.
New Orleans 2017
I just got off the telephone with my daughter Margaret and I want to brag a bit!!!! I am so thoroughly blessed to have Margaret Parsons as my daughter. She astounds me!! She does magic with her children!! I am blown away by her stage background!! Wow!! This ROCKS!!!

I am tickled pink that she is living her life passion!!! She is purposefully living!!! Wow!!

She teaches in New Orleans and I really can’t say more than that. Because she would kill me. However, I am posting photographs from the back drops that she and her students painted! THESE are fabulous pieces of art! 

When she sent them to me, I had tears streaming down my face I was so in awe of her work. If you are an art teacher, if you have students who are supposed to help you create the art for a play…then you know how challenging it is to create magic.

Margaret is magic! She creates rainbows!! 

She told me about the after school children who have become her “magical stage crew”. It all began one afternoon as Margaret was trying to hang the children’s art for a parents conference the next day. Her hands were in the air, holding up the art and the stapler was at her feet. She couldn’t reach her staple gun. In that moment of asking she found 3 terrific helpful, enthusiastic sunshine stage crew children.

Margaret, please don’t hate me for posting this incredible photo!! I think you could sell these back drops an interior wall hangings!! God knows I adore you and your mission on this earth!! YOU dear Margaret are the Art Teaching Priestess!!

I will start creating a cool design-just for you Love!! Soaring beside youuuuuuu!!!

57-2 Stepping up

Original art by Judith Parsons Art 2017 -San Francisco


Architectural elements have always intrigued me.

Medieval architecture has always astounded me. I can only guess at how the amazing cathedral  structures were built. Certainly they must have had some sort of magic to repeat the arches and center the apexes.

I shake my head at their abilities. 

The image you are seeing took a few days to grow. It started with a simple branching shape. Two arms out reaching from a center stem. Then the square, which represents the earth in sacred geometry, became its background. After a late night of playing with the shapes. I twisted them, I sheared them, I stretched the perspective upon them. Then I kissed them all goodnight in my minds eye.

I sighed, they were a mess of shapes upon my Illustrator page. Like a halloween party, all the candy wrappers of the new discoveries littered upon the page. It was okay. Tomorrow, I would clean up the page. That night I was going to sleep on it. The new swirls and shapes needed a night to settle with their energy.

I would go do a meditation and learn more about playing with Deepak and Oprah. I was learning to play and play without needing an outcome. I never dreamed so magically. The visions that came to me after playing in illustrator and photoshop then meditating with a zillion shapes were almost too much stimulation.

I kept centering my mind, breathing and hoping all these new incredible shapes of colors and designs of sacred geometry would stay with me.

You are seeing a delicious design. 

I have a new folder with a brand new series of sacred geometry designs. I am in no rush to do anything with them. They will be born -maybe even placed into a book, one day. 

At 57, I start over. My body carries this magnificent creative imagination. I intend to keep this body strong. My agenda has changed.

I glance over, my peripheral vision giving me a glimpse of my past habits. They weren’t healthy at all. 

Times they are a changing. It takes a baby a year or more to walk. We have time folks. We CAN change and become stronger and better.

Or you can decide to stagnate. Or decide to flow like a river, flood your banks, enjoy the wet wonderful winter. 

Slurp your hot beverage and smile. Decide. Plant the seeds of yourself into this glorious wet fertile ground. I am smiling at you. Little tiny changes. We have this.

I look forward to hugging and squeezing you tight. We have a good 20 years together to perfect our designs. To build what ever we desire!!

Wooohooooooo!! Expecting miracles!

It has taken me a lifetime to come to this point.

It is a glorious point of reflection. If you will see the word “MIND” reflected in a body of water, you get the word “WIND” as the reflection.

As a child climbing trees, I was fascinated with the feeling of the breeze in my face, the way the wind whipped my hair in my face. I sang songs in the top of that tree. I was innocent and naive. The wind was my best friend.

Climbing is what we do. We climb mountains and climb up the corporate ladder. We climb continuously up the ladder of life. Thinking there is something better, something more if we just keep going up.

Perhaps it is an attempt to escape all that we have created.

Perhaps it is an attempt to get above the cloud layer, where everything is quiet.

You can contemplate the reasons with your mind. You can find that point of reflection, where heaven meets earth. Let the breeze of your childhood come back to you. Let the wind caress your face and sigh into that magical feeling.

I will be at that place too. Sitting beside you smiling. Where the mind reflects the wind of you.

Reflected in loves eyes.

Art by Judith Parsons Art 2017.

There are unforgettable times.

Times that stood still that became the go to moments to save you--when you needed to rise up from the bottom of your souls waters.

Reflect upon your deepest truths.

Let them sink into you.

Knowing is enough.

Cindy you are a ladder

Playing in illustrator and photoshop!
Original art created especially for this blog by
Judith Parsons Art. 2017. 
I love ladders and stairways. They provide us transportation upward. It is the same reason I love education. I believe in academia as the way upward out of your messy life. I believed in it enough to seek out a college in my Louisiana town. And yet again in California.

I had a 4 year degree and wanted to add another masters degree or even perhaps a Ph’D. I went to the college seeking a way out and the only graduate degree that sounded interesting was the Special Education degree.

I met an incredible woman, Dr. Cynthia Elliott who flung me into the sun. I remember her walking into the classroom, her smile lit up the room. She was a sun of immense hope and delight! Meeting this divine woman became the stairway toward my highest self. She had confidence in me. When I had none.

Today’s illustration is 20 minutes playing in photoshop and illustrator. Each ladder represents a person, they are warped and disfigured. Yet, when they are propped up against another warped ladder they become a way to move higher. Education is the scaffolding that supports us.

I didn’t finish THAT special education graduate degree, however, I did finish my Masters in fine art. Cindy gave me courage to climb out of the messy horrible place I was in. She believed in me then and still continues to believe in me. Thank you for helping me move upward above the cloud layer Cindy.

I traveled to San Francisco believing in “the force”, believing in higher education. I did secure my MFA in sculpture at the Academy of Arts University. I am choosing clients carefully. I am creating illustrations that are purposeful as I climb my warbling ladder. Life is wonderful as we all climb upward—toward the light.

Keep soaring sweet loves! (hugging and squeezing you tight Cindy) Thank you for helping me choose me, for showing me the ladder toward heaven upon earth!
