Ukulele songs, hot lava and mind expansion....

It certainly has been quite some time since I have made a real wordy entry. I guess tonight I am feeling in a writing mood. I will share some life crumbs and keep this post on the personal life side.


Back in April I took a magical mind expanding trip to Hawaii visiting the islands Maui and Big Island you can see my travel photos here on my flickr album. :) While I was there I bought a ukulele and fell in love with learning to play it. I am not at all looking to be anything with this as I am in no way a singer it just simply gives me utter joy when I play and sing songs that I have adored and act like a goofball and basically have a laugh :D


I will start by sharing a couple silly videos of me playing my ukulele which I have been playing now for about 11 weeks! First up the first song I learned on my ukulele was the adventure time theme song lol :) I can do better but my cat made it perfect ❤️ #dayfourplaying

I was truly moved by my trip and I am in the middle of making some new volcano inspired works, more on that to come in the future :) for now art process shots are top secret! When I was on big island I had the fortunate magical experience of staying on a lava field with the glow of Pele in the night sky out in the distance. Being able to stand on the brand new earth so primordial was an incredible feeling the energy flowed through me differently there. Another insane thing I was able to witness was Pele shoot her lava up having several explosions while I was on the island and the lava spilled over the crater for the first time in some time! Seeing that hot orange red glow spurting up into the darkness spreading it's heavy hot flow of new earth giving birth to itself it was probably one of the most amazing things I have witnessed in person on this beautiful planet of ours.  Here is some youtube footage I found during the time I was there! 


OK well I will try to do more life posts and poetry posts too as I am writing a lot more these days in my journal/ sketchbooks.

It's basically a 3 minute memory blitz of my art over the last ten years, 
it might make you dizzy but hope you enjoy it smile emoticon

  
This is a super short "docu-mini" condensing ten years of making and showing my art. If you are curious to see more and get a closer look visit at the artwork please visit https://www.angiemason.com also be sure to like my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AngieMasonArt 

For me the crazy part is this is a very very condensed selected works video so there is so much more that isn't even shown! Like I said it's a memory blitz basically ;)
