Dedicated to Brian Walton Dec 2015

This music and this art is dedicated to my friend Brian Walton. This art was doodled while trying to come to grips with the state of the world and the loss of a beloved friend. The music was written while pondering unconditional love between friends.

On July 23, 2016, I gave the original doodle book of this art to the Three Sisters Pines in Spirit Forest at Lake Obabika. This was a love offering. Time and the Elements will reclaim this art. The memory of my friend Brian will rest in peace in the shade of these trees. This is the place that inspires my art and so it is only fitting for it to return there.

I went to 2016 River and Sky as a Vendor this year.
I had the time of my life and I met a lot of really great people.
People seemed to understand my art
and it was a pleasure to share.

Over time, I have been giving art to a child care day school. Art is wonderful for sensory and imagination and it brings a homey feel to the environment. I was honored when they gathered up the art and made a Welcome Bienvenue Aaniin wall in the lobby.

travelling the red road

"travelling the red road" don wright 2016
22x30 acrylic on paper
work in progress

I spent the weekend painting. 
Its been well over a year since I picked up a paintbrush....
I have just been doodling. 

The last painting I did was with Jimi Oskineegish, 
and I really had to up my painting skills.
I tried so hard to clean up my lines and to learn how to properly apply paint. 

In all honesty, when I saw how much effort had to go into a piece, 
I really had to soul search. 
I much preferred the immediate gratification and freedom of the doodle. 
I lacked the patience and confidence. 
I wanted to run rather than stroll.

I am pleased to say, 
I am now approaching painting in a much different 
and more mature mind set.
I understand now. 
The pieces fit and I have the patience now to paint.

This is a 22x30 I am working on. 
I dont care how long it takes to finish. 
It is a journey.
I will be travelling up and down this red road, 
over and over until my heart says stop.

So at this point I am full of gratitude to my mentors.
I feel good in mind, body and soul. 
I am most grateful for the process of learning and enlightenment 
and the journey is full of Progressive Revelations.
