Today Is Friday February 26 2021, This Is What Happen

 

Last week I am sure I didn't take part in PAINT PARTY FRIDAY I have several creative project going on. This one is part of SKETCH BOOK PROJECT in Brooklyn New York. Been working on this for some time now. My theme for rhis sketch book is as planet pluto going though all the zodiac sign. Or one can call it historical or generational themes. This one is as pluto going though Libra, from years of 1971 until 1984. I was getting close to entry my teen years, and pretty much just start out in work force. I entered my working force during the year of trickle down ecomomics. The scales was becoming un balance. This piece was done in oil pastles, twist ties for veggies and meats from store, brown paper bag, and fake gem stones. Question time...What was going on in world at this time...I start seeing my self becoming estrange or different from my family. I see my self as character Lisa Simpson or even Marilynn in Munsters. Like everyone could of made different Choices though our lifes. But I pretty much enter the work force in early 1980's during the time of "greed is good" And my wages pretty much been from $8 to $15 and hour. Which means during my support my self total been I recieves a raise of not quite two cents a year. Confession time...There years I was a stay home mom and didn't work in main force.


As some of you I been declutter, getting rid of things that have no purpose and organize things. Statement time...It frustartating when you know you have something and can't find it. Well one of problem I had was I end up with per cut fabrics and didn't know how to organize them or sort them. Well not long ago I bought some totes. Had a few envelopes. So I'm sorting the blocks by size and sticking them into the envelopes. It took me well over three weeks to figure ths soluction out.

Last few days healthy habits been on a bumby road, car oil will be change, and off to see my youngest son tomorrow.

Coffee is on and stay safe

  9. I'm so different from the rest of my family, then found out I was adopted and the differences made a lot of sense. Major, not appearance, but in outlook, in values etc.
    Girl, organizing one's supplies is so we can find them again! Good luck, it's constant around here.

  10. I must say your art piece was creative and abstract. We go through so many phases in our lives, some were uplifting and other times one wonder's how we managed to walk, through. I think decluttering is therapeutic, don't you 🤩?

  11. I entered the workforce (cheese factory) in 1968 and thought I was rich when my first week's pay was $70. Soon after I became a stay at home mum for 13 years and when I went back to work (shoe factory) things had changed quite a bit and weekly pay just about knocked my socks off. It sure came in handy with four kids to feed and clothe. Hubby was working too, so things were really good for a while, then he started gambling.

  12. Your art is fun and what an interesting idea, the zodiac/planets. We never used to see much of the stars here as the sky was fairly polluted with aircraft trails/cloud as we are near an airport but since lockdown this has changed - I should get out there at night and make the most of it perhaps. Yes the 80s were a time of greed, but it's human nature and when we look back those times helped us store and prepare for leaner times ahead. Nothing wrong with being ambitious I suppose. I always worked part time/nights when my kids were little but I found it really hard to leave the house in the middle of the night when they were all sleeping :) Being a stay at home mum is so much easier to do now with job sharing and childcare being much more easily available. My first ever school leaver job at 15 was hairdressing, I earned £25 a week and tips! That wouldn't even buy a haircut these days!

  13. That's an original idea the zodiac/planets ! Unfortunately we don't see stars very often it's always cloudy !

  14. Nice work. De-cluttering is hard work. We did a big clear out a few years ago, and now keep everything to the minimum required.

  15. Liking the art!
    I started work at 14 - a saturday job in a video shop - obsolete these days. I quit paid employment when I turned 40 and had paid off my mortgage, 14 years later I'll never be rich but my life is my own. x
