Playing with Deepak

Andy Warhol was known for playing with iconic celebrities. Who better to use in playful creativity than Deepak Chopra? Nope, I am not on his payroll yet. However, I believe in miracles and I have a great appreciation for this spiritual guru.

I imagine if we made a T-shirt it might have dualistic something or other in the middle...inside of my name.

I love his glasses- such an iconic personality! YOU rock Deepak!! Love you Dude!! 

One of first books, he wrote about doing your life's passion. Trust in your passion. Trust in what makes you come alive. Do what ever you love with all of your being, and don’t worry about the money part of it. 

I went back to college to finish my graduate degree in art. I invested in myself. I grew art wings in the process and fell madly involve with the precision of art using digital laser technology. I also started creating with adobe photoshop and adobe illustrator as my sanity keeper.

The one thing we can depend on is change. Plain and simple. As we close the 2017 book we get ready to open the blank pages…I can see water color sketches slowly coming into focus upon my book.

Find your passion. Do it! Don’t worry about making money off of it. The finances will flourish! Learn your craft! Have fun! 

2018 is going to be a better year.

Maggie Boyle

Art created by Judith Parsons Art 2017 San Francisco.
If there was ever an mountain of energy within a body, it was found within Margaret Boyles tall frame. Just thinking about her spirit, how incredible courageous she was, how brave at such a young age and how determined as an older woman —makes me want to grow up and be just like her.

She was 14 years old when she was sent away to be the Dalton Abby sort of maid who did everything for the household. Her family needed the money and she was sent away to make money for the family. Can you imagine? Do you know any 14 year old today that would do that? Heck no! They’d run away and join the circus, before working as a maid, milking the cow, washing the linens, making breakfast for everyone and starting the fires every morning!

I only just met her a few years ago. My favorite memory is Maggie coming into the living room with her floppy beach hat upon her head! She had a great smile upon her face and a sparkle in her eye! She asked: “What are we doing today?” And Anita and I busted out in laughter.

There she stood in her night gown and beach hat, laughing away and ready to head to the beach. We went to the beach. We took a folding chair for her and a blanket. We talked about her life and her memories about the children and how they walked everywhere. There used to be a hedge that the children would run into when they were learning to ride a bike. I remember her saying: “Funny how they stopped running into the wall- once it became concrete.” That still makes me smile.

She was a firm believer in getting out everyday! If someone asked you out, "You had your coat at the ready!" She was always ready to go on an adventure! 

You will be missed Maggie. The house will not be the same without you. It is true, you fall in love with the whole family, not just one person. Your bright eyes, and wild wonderful white mane of hair will be horribly missed.  Keep a table set for me in heaven I look forward to sitting around the table with you and my parents, having the craic.

See you on the other side. We all know earth time is a year, while heaven time is a blink of an eye. I love you Maggie Boyle.

(The art was created with reaching arms. As we all reach for heaven daily.)

One photo of my hand holding a rope. Duplicating the photo and reflecting it.

Merging the two photos into one layer.
rotating the photo 45 degrees.

Pushing the saturation level up to pop the colors.

Very strong graphic as is. Holding on tight.
Afraid to release the my daughter said: "Being okay with being at ease."

Tis the season for crazy family drama...let it go. Release the grip. Cleat the rope off, relax- let the wind take the sails...Chill.

These bottom 2 graphics were deconstructing the original image. Rotating and playing with the creative energy of fun!! Having a great time with sacred geometry!!
Enjoy your art!

Awareness Warrior Deepak

I captured this photograph of Deepak from Instagram.
I played with photoshop to create this illustration.
Judith Parsons Art 2017 San Francisco
I am listening to the time meditation and drawing in photoshop- I used a photo from instagram of Deepak  and his yoga partner. I took the image and creates a sacred geometry piece of art. 

What we focus on- we pull into the center of our lives.

No wonder the “vision board” is working. Makes sense huh? (grinning)

The things I am working on: “ Reinventing my body, resurrecting my soul. “ The title of Deepaks book. When in reality I am doing just what the book title says. Yes, I am 57 years young. Yes, most people would be considering retirement.
I on the other hand, am starting over. I am creating advertising, logos and art for people and businesses that I feel are worthy of my time.

THIS is a huge place to be. 

Oprah and Deepak called it “purposeful living”. 

It is standing in the center of a forest - looking around and knowing that this is going to be the place I have an off-grid home. I can here the young river running not far off. I can see in my minds eye the me- stronger and fit.

Can anyone start over? YES. If you follow my Facebook page- then you saw the video about a woman who started lifting weights at 59 years young. Yep. I can see you shaking your head, and I am chuckling at the idea too. However, we can start over. 

We can change the molecules and energy with great food and positive focus. YES! Let us all become the “Awareness Warrior!”
