  • It’s funny — Whenever someone talks about the rules, we just want to break them. We recoil from the whole idea of rules.

  • We have room for another artist, and could really use another set of hands to help with walk ins! Busy downtown location. We are extremely busy, so having your own clientele would be a plus, but not mandatory. Must be kind, clean, and do nice tattoos! Shoot me an email if you’re interested in getting more details: inkbyaj@gmail.com

  • Bonus perk of hosting Amitava Kumar this week: he’s not only teaching workshops for us and participating in salons and readings, he’s creating art, too! This is seriously lovely; we’re honored. And we prefer this view to the rainy and grey one that’s currently happening outside. 🎨: @amitavawriter #denver #litfest2019 #amitavakumar #denverartists #denverart #repost

  • We got to let some color into this space. I mean it is summer and all. 🐢🐢⚡️⚡️🤙🏻🤙🏻

On a more serious note, I just recently threw open the box of naturally-dyed @weavingsouthweat Churro yarn, which I had kept sealed away. I dyed all this Churro yarn at fiber camp last year, and for a time, I wondered when I would use it.  Slowly, but surely, I opened up to the idea that color needs to play a role in my work.  A few folks would encourage me to give it a go every now and then. Yet, it didn’t really stick until a conversation I had with @lookoutandwonderland last week.  For some reason, I set straight to work that night on the piece pictured here. She offered up that color is super healing. I have to agree. I have found the flow so easily with this piece. It has been like going back to the beginning of my practice all over again.

I think it’s important to not hold too tightly to any one story or approach to my work. This is particularly important for me to remember, because I was getting super wrapped up in my story about using my own handspun and sticking with the natural colors of the Navajo Churro Sheep. Well, that’s all well and good, but I don’t need to hold onto the practice so tightly that I don’t practice other skills that I enjoy, such as dyeing and foraging. Rather than sticking so closely to that, I want to adopt a mindset that focuses on an eternal return to the beginning. I like that. I want to eternally return to the sort of limitless, open approach I had when I started this practice.

  • Day 76/100 of #100daysoffeelingmyfeelings

Wrote today’s post on the way home from climbing after driving past a bright orange mountain that — I must admit — I first thought was so beautiful. It looked like alpenglow radiated warmth on its whole side.

I quickly realized that it wasn’t the sun casting light, but the entire side of the mountain cut off and missing while literally bleeding minerals into the stream below.

It felt a bit shocking, to see destruction of something so awe-inspiring. I Googled the mine and found an article in the @denverpost from this winter. They reported that the mine was lobbying to lift the health limits so it could dump higher concentrations of contaminates in the mountain creek below, which provides Denver’s drinking water. The writer said “no one is objecting”.
.
I had no idea about this, as I’m sure so many didn’t. And it infuriates me. Guys, 2020 seems far away, but just a reminder — we need to vote with the environment first. Above all else. Period.

In the meantime, vote with your DOLLAR. Support companies that lead with the planet and people in mind. Spending power is massive. And stay aware. I use the app Countable to know what my representatives are voting on and when.

And read your local paper!!! Thank you to the Denver Post for bringing this story to us. Sorry I’m late. Getting my subscription ASAP.

  • Dropped by the @kirklandmuseumdenver for a little video interview with @collinparson this morning in the lead up to the Colorado Abstract +10 show this September at @arvadacenter, which will survey historical and contemporary abstract painters here in Colorado. We got to talking about my past few years of transformation as a painter from my redacted works that focused on the Aurora theater shooting to my flags and the more directly expressionist paintings I'm making lately. It's fun to look back on these symbols that I've built up and how they represent the time when they were made. I've evolved drastically both in the content and form of my works over the past few years, yet they still seem connected as a pattern of cohesive thoughts. There's an inner dialogue emerging, always expanding to tackle more topics and symbols. I'm refreshed and excited to watch as once-timely ideas become grow into a personal view of history over the next few decades. #contemporaryart #abstractart #denverart #abstractpainting #painting #paulweiner
