The Rescue. 3 Very Adventurous Cats - This is my favorite favorite!! So Awesome!! :O)


In Heidi’s own words…

My paintings are most often of cats. Not only do I adore them, they also seem to symbolize the human condition.

As but a part of the animal world, we humans are driven by the same basic desires and needs as all animals. Cats, in particular, are not shy about making their needs known. I find their shameless egocentricity makes a perfect model, within which I might make a statement or two about man; as I see him, of course.

I was born in Germany and raised in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. In my early youth archaeology and anthropology captured my fascination. Consequently, I earned a BA in Anthropology from the University of Pittsburgh and an MA in American Civilization from the University of Pennsylvania. While working in that field for over a decade, I began painting as a hobby. My cats have been my favorite subject right from the start. Over time my interest in painting eclipsed my interest in archaeology, and I have been painting full time for over 9 years. I feel very fortunate to have been able to do what I love most for a living.

 

U GO GIRL!!!  

I HOPE YOU PAINT FOR A HUNDRED YEARS!!!

It was a dangerous weekend here in NYC.

I was upstate frolicking in the park with friends, eating way too much,  I chillin and everyone was asking me, did you eat?  Did you eat?

Yes!!! 

I ate more than I usually eat and I was trying to watch what I ate but it is very hard when you are in the situation.

But it was, fun, fun, fun and I sat by the pool safely away from the dangerous rip currents of the sea!

YaY!!!!

A Song of Trust in God
“The LORD is my light and the one who saves me.
I fear no one.
The LORD protects my life. I am afraid of no one.
Evil people may try to destroy my body.
My enemies and those who hate me attack me,
but they are overwhelmed and defeated.
If an army surrounds me. I will not be afraid. 
If war breaks out, I will trust in the LORD.”
PSALM 27: 1-3
YaY!!! 
It looks like it is going to be beautiful day!!!
Thank you for spending some of your precious day with me.

Buried Secrets

 

 

 

YaY!!!  

One day to the weekend you beautiful people!!!

Thursday, Thursday!!!  

Well, it’s a good thing I decided not to go to The Bronx Zoo yesterday, because there was an incident there where …

Dozens Stuck in Midair at the Bronx Zoo
More than three dozen cable car passengers were stranded for hours Wednesday night at the Bronx Zoo after an emergency mechanism caused the ride to shut down.
Reports said that a powerful thunder strom caused the malfunction.   I love taking that cable car across the park.  It gives a beautiful airal view of the zoo.  They where stranded for like 5 hours.  The free admission probably had allot of people visiting the zoo yesterday.   Everyone is OK God!  :O)
Bill Viola the artist not the baseball player…
The Internationally-Renowned Video Artist Bill Viola.

Bill Viola: Buried Secrets

 

In this work 3 women are greeting each other.  The scene is recorded from a fixed camera position, the actions of the figures are seen in extreme slow motion and are presented in a vertical aspect ratio. The entire original event of forty-five seconds unfolds as an elaborate choreography over the course of ten minutes. ……

I saw this work in 1997 at the Whitney Retrospective of his work.  I went to see it like 3 times and I drug my father to see it, because I kept talking to him about it.  He love it too and he is a very practical man :O)

What did we love about it??  The main reason why this is my favorite piece of his, is that it tickles the mind with it’s obvious but not overt reference to Mary the Mother of Jesus and her greeting women in the square.   This is purely my interpretation and the artist gives us no verbal or written guidance that supports this interpretation.   

But it goes to my theory that you can experience nothing in it’s pure form, all your experiences and the interactions are all colored if not guided by your past experiences and when you have strong reaction and connections to anything it is because of these factors.

The beauty and truth I found in Bill’s work is that it focuses you on each breath we take in this life and how much we actually miss in our daily interactions.  The greeting seconds streched into 10 minutes.    With no sound.  But I was paralized unable to move absoultely captivated by the silent dialog and information that became so illuminated in that interaction between those three women.

So much so that it is still huants me over a decade after seeing it and it has changed me in that it showed me a truth that I didn’t know before that truely even moment counts and means something.
