This is the sketch for my new painting- I am thinking about making the moths into people with wings...it represents humanity as we unknowingly seek power from the Spirit of The Universe but most of us don’t seem to realize we are all in this together and there is enough to go around...(I realized that I made a mistake on "colorchallenge" for today - it's actually Blue - not indigo) OOPS!
I am going to embed this Sigil into this painting - possibly as the candle holder. I found a big canvas on the street - I am using it.
First I painted a few pieces of paper with tempera paint, in the abstract.
Next I drew "moths" on the back.
*Then I cut them out.*
*I but some details in a few of them to see how it would look*
I used mod-podge to attach these tempera moth cut-outs to the canvas-board.
*here's where it is now, while I wait for them to dry*
This painting is about Humanity. It is about how we are slaves. Humanity are slaves and have been for over 400,000 years...to MONEY. Money is the proxy for the TRUE "one-eye" - the Creator of the Universe.
Like moths, we seek the warmth we believe having "money" gives us access to. Money is a construct of control. Humans are actually FREE beings that were a hominid species that lived upon the earth millions of years ago. Then, some beings came from somewhere else and created a slave species by taking some of their DNA and combining it with the DNA of the hominids, so that they could use the hominid species to do some dirty work down here on planet earth that the visitors did not want to do.
We are at war with ourselves because our true nature is that of compassion and love for our fellows and the earth, but the constructs of control tell us that the world is mechanistic and we have to fight to stay ahead and harm our brother to get their place.
They interrupted the natural evolution of the hominid species by giving us this DNA, to make us slaves. Then, being immoral beings as they were, to violate Natural Law in this manner, these beings sexually violated some of the female slaves of the "new" species they had created, bringing forth a hybrid species, who they gave rulership over the *humans* to. They gave these *bloodlines of the gods* constructs of control: money, religion, hierarchy, and secret knowledge, with which to enslave the *homo-sapiens* and keep them in line. The visitors have stayed with us much of the time making sure that we remain enslaved and do not realize our true nature.
Here we are today, still enslaved - even with bitcoin and cryptocurrency because it is still the same system - the haves and the have-nots. We still do not rely upon the Creator of the Universe and Natural Law in a gift economy, knowing that if we let all this illusion go, we could live together here on planet-earth in complete freedom, and be taken care of in this beautiful world.
Instead, we are killing the earth and sentient beings, staying asleep, buying into these false control systems, and forgetting about and harming our fellows.
Today, in fact, I was witness to a bunch of bullies trying to kill one of their own - one who is a little sicker then they - because they are full of fear and anxt from all they buy into in the world. I had to stand up to the bullies and tell them, NO! There is enough Light from the Creator for all of us. We have no right to throw someone out for non-conformity.
This painting also contains this Sigil. I live within this society so I have to use these fake FRN's to survive until others catch up to the reality that we don't need USD, BTC, SBD - we just need LOVE.

Today I sat down with a friend of mine who I have not seen for a year and a half - who I saw on Facebook the other day and I thought - we should get together. He is down-and-out and on Monday I am going to sit down with him again and help him set up a steemit account so he can get on here and maybe make a little cash in an underground sorta way. We oldsters aren't doing well out there in the marketplace. It sucks. We need to get by, and it looks like steemit might be our ticket.

*another one, just with sharpie*
*ball-point pen and sharpie*
I do my best work while my *left-brain* is occupied, and I find that being on the phone while doing art is the best way to get the best work out of myself. My *left brain* is very slow in comparison to my *right-brain*. I feel like I am dealing with
[image](http://www.vectronicsappleworld.com/archives/vintage/images/0013/snap10.jpg" width="500">) my old Mac SE from 1992 and a lightning fast MacBook Pro - in my *right-brain* - so I pretty much stay in my *right-brain* as much as possible.
Unfortunately though, because of that, if I am *unbalanced* like that, then I suffer from being a coward, unable to stand up against tyranny. To deal with this, I have been trying to use my *left-brain* more, by reading books, doing math, hand-writing in journals, to get it to do equal work, and I also have continued to put myself in situations where I have to stand up for principle.

Like yesterday - I went to this *board meeting of the non-profit* where my group of friends meets - to get our key and amount for rent, and the *board* started talking about how this *one* lady needs to be banned from the property, because she is this that and the other. She's a little *strange*. She walks to the beat of a *different* drummer. So what???
Non-Conformity is Good!
NO! We do not ban people. I *knew* when I went in there that I was going to have stand up for principle, which I hate, because I am chronically *right-brained*, but I prayed asked God for help... God, the Creator of the Universe, does not *ban* people!!! We all have to learn how to get along here on planet-earth. There are no more vast continents upon which we can move to get away from each other. It is the same old-dilemma we don't want to have to face - and it's here now, and we have to learn how to get along with each other without subscribing to *group-think* and the hierarchical methods...
The Key to Freedom Hence the subject matter of this painting...we are moths who think we are butterflies and we are trying to get heat from a limited source when we could get heat from within and love each other... Then we would be free!
I had to stand up against the Tyranical ruler of the *non-profit* - this angry dude who somehow has figured out how to sound good so that others take his word over Bobbi's - the gal they want to *cast-out*. It was my first time at this *Board Meeting* so they don't know me, so I kinda felt like I needed to be *respectful* of that fact, while at the same time, I had to stand up for Natural Law! A person who is a non-conformist was about to be *penalized* for being *different* and these dorks were about to assign her a bunch of guilt, without her being able to prove her innocence. She didn't even know she stood accused!
*This is why, I need to be in Brain Balance.* I know I am protected when I stand in the Truth for Natural Law. I have to do this Every Day that it is in my face to do.
The Homeless Guy Outside My Window I woke up this morning thinking about this guy living in his camper outside my window.
Should I offer him a shower? If I knock on his door, will that cause more problems? Does he know people in this building? I remember he used to live in the building next door, I thought. Or at least I saw his camper parked in their lot before... I could easily be in his shoes. I just hope that no one "reports" him ... I have noticed a lot of suspicion in people lately - minding other people's business - thanks to the media and the war on Truth.* My roommate and I just decided to offer him a shower, if we see him... find out what his situation is. God, please reveal to me what I should and can do for this person.
Moths To The Flame is about that - we are asleep to who we are and our unique potential and our connection to one another as we seek warmth from a source outside of us. There is not enough room for all of us to fit near the flame, but we think "I got mine, so I'm ok"...so some of us die in the cold if we lose our place. I could lose my place - easily... I have lost my place once before... I was a lot younger then ... My sister is still living in her car, age 75.
I did end up getting color down on this whole painting. I have noticed my style evolving - in the last 3 paintings... I have been noticing that my artwork has evolved, since September... it has to do with my subject matter and how I formulate a painting...I have been working pretty much one way, mentally, since 2011, and I really have been pushing myself to evolve passed that to expanded horizons. *As above, so below* - perhaps that means that I am evolving and integrating my studies, more and more.
I awoke at 5am and could not get back to sleep, unfortunately. I am exhausted, and when I woke up I was thinking about the Tarot images, and how I cannot relate to them at all because of the hierarchy and the monarchy. I have been studying the Tarot for 30 years and it still eludes me but I feel a breakthrough is near.
