Going Back: Sharing Your Memories

I like to go back. I like to remember. When I come back to today, I share what I remember. But, the best part is when people join in and make “remembering” a conversation. What do you remember? How can you connect your memories to your journey today?

I remember the peacock feathers. As a child, they were a source of total fascination for me. I loved to touch them and play with them. I am now drawn to them when I see them. A simple peacock feather can spark memories that bring me all the way back to being a toddler. It is amazing that something so basic can take me places I haven't been for 45 years.

Consider going back. When you return, we’d love to hear about your trip. What memories take you places you haven’t been for a long, long time? Share with us here at Journey on Canvas. We’d like to remember with you. You can be a part of the conversation.

Recent Work!

Take Apart 2,
Age 45

I am in the throes of taking apart my old art: the art that doesn't please me in its entirety. I love pieces of these pieces though, so I start to use them. I make some new work that is not entirely new. I make something better from something not quite right. It is satisfying.

Past Work!

Old Junk
Age 42

I’m gonna pull that Old Junk out of my head. I’m not going to give it a chance to play its old song of doubt, fear and sadness. Instead, I’m going to believe something new, write a new song and let that new tape play. Old tape out, new tape in!
