Creative Native

Yesterday was National Aboriginal Day, the day we recognize and celebrate the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples of Canada.  
I woke up early and like a proud Métis ran out to work. I hoped that after my 8 hour day there would still be events going on and I wouldn’t be too tired to participate.

In the late afternoon I dropped by one of the open air pow wows, just in time for the last few songs.  Meandering around, I watched the competitive dancing and admired the different jewelry, art and clothing being sold.  
I was having a lazy blissful time but a rain storm pushed me to head home. 

My intention for the evening was to make bannock but sleep got in the way of that plan too.

So, to honour yesterday and the fact that I'm Aboriginal everyday I'm posting some of my indigenous inspired art.

My Letter is V!

My letter is V given to me by my friend Kat.
Something I like: Vanilla ice cream
Something I dislike:  Vinegar, its way too sour and doesn't belong on french fries.
Something I love:  Valentines. I adore them.
Something bad:   Vanity, its just not good for your well being. 

Work in Progress

This is a painting that I started last summer. I haven't done anything with it except move it around my apartment telling myself I'm going to go back and "finish" it.
I'm not sure what to do next. I love the way it looks right now but it doesn't feel complete to me. I also can't decide how I want to display the painting.I've been thinking about stamping over top. I don't want to ruin it.

In the garden with my mother
She tells me stories
I admire the flowers and her red shoes

Thoughts on Tuesday

on my head
hit my toes
Wet between my wings
now a runny nose
