MY PREHISTORIC SIDE ...

I strongly believe that what I am today

is the result of a mixture of several previous lives ...

No, seriously...

I think at one time I must have been Mexican. I am so inspired by this country, its people, its art, its land, its language...

Then, at another time, I must have been a Native American, knowing the name of every plant and animal, crafting with natural fibers, being in touch with my soul and the entire earth, fishing and hunting and gardening daily and giving thanks to higher beings for my acts...

I must have also been a cavewoman, an animal of some sorts, with a somewhat bigger brain then the other species around me, a female cromagnon dressed in fur, barefoot, with unkept long hair, a basic mother, protector of my grotto and my children, companion of my mate, unknowingly part of the beginning of the humanity...

I believe this is the reason why I am happy with little daily miracles.

Why I am a lover of nature in general.

Where I got my crafty and creative flow.

Why I am not a social or mundane person.

Why I relate to the moon so much.

Why I adore the water of rivers and oceans.

Why my family is so important.

Why I know who I am ...

I finished this commissioned painting yesterday,

tribal critters of all sorts,

a bit mexican, Native American and prehistoric ...

I love this painting! I know what you mean about feeling like you've lived other lives before. I know I have!

Yes, I can see that you were all those things and probably more...which is why you are who you are today...A wonder woman of all sorts of creativity. :) Hi Lulu, glad you are feeling so happy. I have always felt I was in the days of the Pyramids, Egyptians. I am deeply drawn into their lives. Any wayyyyyy, I better go, I am using my mom's neighbor's connection. Take care. Great painting.

This is such a beautiful, vibrant piece. It's full of movement and looks so ALIVE. I truly love it. It's interesting to see how our different likes and interests are reflected in our work. Just wonderful. Theresa :

I totally get that!
My oldest niece, I believe, has been here many times. As a little child she described herself as a "wise old owl" and she would say and write the "deepest" stuff.
Personally, I think this is my first time around. As a human anyway! Sometimes I'm so dumb and gullible that there's no way that I've been here before.
But maybe as a dog, a Golden Retriever probably and maybe once as a cat, a black one that loved Halloween and snoozing in the sun.

Wonderful vibrant painting Lulu!
As for me, I've always felt I've lived in Old Victorian or Early American times. I love old things, antiques & simple times!

LuLu! Me, too! I definitely think I must have been Mexican. :) I am so drawn to that culture, their food and their art. :) Maybe we were neighbors. Have a great weekend, I LOVE the new piece. You are always so inspiring! xo Pam
