🌄 Day 237/365
Had a lovely night talking about my art and earth pigments, such as the red ochre in my paintings that I source here on Maui. I love explaining that this was probably the oldest paint pigment in the world, like VERY old, like this is what our ancestors and possibly even Neanderthals painted with in caves. That fascinates me and I can’t help getting excited about it. Also, as opposed to California, people on Maui -including tourists- know that there’s red dirt everywhere, visible on almost any drive you take. It just depends on how red you want to get. I loved showing people the glow in the dark aspect, another part of my art that makes me giddy like a child. It’s always fun to meet people and show them what I do! (Or show people I’ve known a while, who hadn’t a clue this is what I did.) I like my art a lot! (I guess otherwise I wouldn’t make it.)
I had fully intended to sleep till noon or something after sunrise before posting this (I earned it!) but I guess I’m too jazzed to stay asleep any longer (it’s 9.) Today it’s back to the bar to retrieve all my stuff and tomorrow is a new day to plan a new art event here on the island with my new artist friends. Thanks for the love, Maui!
