I wanted to share a new ring I made this week as I slowly recover from my emotional burnout. Normally I sketch out my designs and really sit with it for hours, days, weeks, to let it speak to me without rushing, let it decide for itself how best to bring it to life. This delicate rose piece however just came out of the ether at my workbench while I sat contemplating how my heart aches while I watch so many fires burn, wondering what I or anyone else feeling equally powerless could offer to help ease such suffering. No sketching; just me, my tools, a handful of sterling silver and box of various gemstones guiding my hands intuitively. In floriography red roses symbolise love, and what a beautiful message of hope to receive. The band is an open spiral design, symbolic of our souls forever turning and moving forward, open to new hopes, new dreams, emboldened by love. The rose flower is a delicate round cut garnet, reminding us of the healing power of a vast and deeply unconditional love, not necessarily of a romantic nature, for ourselves, for others, and for the world and universe itself. The leaf is a sterling silver cast taken from a real wild rose bush so that the wearer will always have a connection to nature and the healing power of the earth no matter where they find themselves. I've sent it off to be tumbled, which hardens and polishes the silver to a high shine, when I get it back next week I'll finish setting the stone.

Sometimes I have to trick myself into staying in my creative practice. What I mean by that is that sometimes life gets crazy and distracting with all the things and I know that I can lose momentum while my creative practice just keeps dropping to the bottom of the “To Do” list. I used to create “challenges” for this but I no longer do challenges. Essentially challenges would end up on my “To Do” list and feel like heavy a chore and something to fail at and be self critical about. No one needs more of that right). Now, instead, I create invitations and my Morning Music Meditations was just that- an invitation...

EarthWorks Series: A Little Rain Darius Guilford - December, 2019 Mixed Media on Paper 6.3 x 7.9 inches (16 x 20 cm). Celebrating  the element of Earth. A new series of work celebrating the ground we are privileged to walk upon. These works are not landscapes in the traditional, Western sense. Rather they are evocative of the experience of Earth. They explore our relationship with Earth, our dependace upon it, our estrangement from it. These works are less about what is observed and more about what is experienced. I continue my fascination with formal abstract and reductionist concerns, and with my ongoing dialogue with edges, boundaries, environment and habitat. I'm interested is how we define and relate to space; owned, shared and unclaimed. With this new series I begin a new adventure through the elements, physical, metaphysical, and magical. Gently and freely applied washes of acrylic ink provide a beautiful ground which allows for a subtle texture in the finished work. . . . . #art #australianartist #AustralianDesigner #instaart #artistsofinstagram #BlueMountainsArtist #bmcan #bmartistnetwork #abstract #abstractart #nonobjective #contemporayart #contemporayartist #geometricabstraction #postminimal #postminimalism #reductionist #mixedmedia #Acrylic #Liquitex #LiquitexAcrylicInk #LiquitexInk #watercolour #watercolor #gouache #ink #winsorandnewton #fabercastell #polychromos #prismacolor
