Thank you to everyone who intentionally (or otherwise) supported the culmination of this 100 Hummingbird Art Series. I’m glad to share some of the hummingbird art with children and together appreciate nature and all it has to offer — even/particularly in urban settings.
During this seven+ year stretch of painting, sculpting, metalsmithing, singing, etc. some of my friends married, had children, raised children, sold apartments, bought houses, traveled, went back to school, and had some fine dining experiences. I’m glad I’m now able to catch up with some of these friends and see the wedding photos, houses, and hear stories of their children.
For this Helenbobelen, this 100 Hummingbird Art Series was pretty much completed for the sake of art, for the sake of finding simple joy despite what others thought or felt was right for my life. In the process of sitting down and painting in public places, I spoke with enlightened mothers, children, and business people, and of course, other artists. Over the seven years, I also created many, many, many pairs of thin gold hoop earrings, lost and regained my ability to speak and write, commuted by kickscooter, healed from dying, cuddled my 19-year-young wonderful calico cat, became a (mostly) raw whole foods plant-based eater and a proponent for human rights and nature conservation…and started this ACEO gallery. For those who once nay-sayed, I’m glad to see that my life choices are appealing to you. (It wasn’t fully my intention, but I’m glad my choices can be viewed as sane.)
And being alone, creating with my hands, taught me how to truly love life…and how to be alone with myself and my thoughts. Last year, when I came back from death, I was happy to go back to my artist life, as I believe an artist’s life is one of the best kinds of lives to live.
Unbridled joy is even better than being in the world’s best galleries. I’m happy to be happy…and happy to feel grateful. I did it as an indie-artist!
Thank you to Dr. Juan Bahamon for his hummingbird photography, to friends and fam, and to you for your continued purchases and kind feedback.
P.S. I created Hummingbird 100 with washable markers in tribute to my enthusiastic art students who are just learning how to paint with light…
