Erasure

Dream VII

Fully developed

fantasy vision life.

Can’t sleep

dream.

Demoralizing inward

strength to go,

have your tongue and swallow anger,

Embark painful self

I envy.

Thrilling people

turn the page.

Many chapters had been roughly torn from a paperback… I received three pages.  I searched to find a poem by connecting an assemblage of words between, above, and below the printed text in front of me.  This is how ‘Dream VII’ was written.

Play-pen App

Blogging 101 has me living across new worlds… even eating sweet, baked ‘black’ bananas… well… I am 1/2 Fruitarian.

Elle Kae published a list of iPhone apps to enhance blogging posts.  ‘ABM; A Beautiful Mess’ sounded invaluable and I spent $1.19 to buy it.

In well-connected Collage Circles I am known as; “The Particle Princess”.  This is my beautifull mess:  in photo essay form, because last week’s assignment (post in a style you don’t usually do) hasn’t been done.

These first two were made using Collage layouts and my Photographs.

This one is created using my ‘In-Camera Collage’ and ‘ABM’ Borders; chevrons, shocking pink dots, and ribbon-like script.

Three iPhone Photos captured on Denman Street, in Vancouver’s West End, were set into the Collage Layout.  I then added an ‘ABM’ doodle and chose ‘Lorinda’ text to type the word:  What!

Made completely with ‘ABM’ Collage Features. Later I loaded this image into Instagram, vignetted it a bit, and added a Caption: “PLaYgrOunD”

never grew long roots.

Wise-ass Say-so Denim

"If it's Denim... it's Universal"
“If it’s Denim… it’s Universal”

Jeans are an invention of 19th century U.S.A. Initially conceived as rugged work pants by the founder of Levi Strauss they eventually became a symbol of rebellious youth in the fifties. In the late sixties jeans became a socially acceptable designer item and worn by well-to-do young in Europe.

A Men & Women’s Wise-Ass Neoteric Look:

Begin with Designer Jeans, worn with a striped shirt open at the neck, and paired with a noteworthy belt and Italian loafers. Choose a boldly colored and printed pocket square to contrast with the shirt. Pull the centre of the pocket square down and tuck it inside the back pocket of your jeans leaving the points out to give a loose relaxed effect.

Levi’s 501 are the celebrity jeans. Why? Because famous people, like Andy Warhol, wore them…

with…

check shirt, necktie, and blue blazer.

Bob Colacello, writer for Vanity Fair, has mentioned that it was Warhol”s colleague and friend, Fred Hughes, who birthed the combination of jeans with a suit jacket. Hughes had his 501’s washed and pressed every day so the seams were never crooked and there was no loose fabric on the thighs. Warhol was far more notorious than Hughes and so the “uniform” became known as the ‘Warhol Look’.

"Warhol WOW"
“Warhol WOW”

To keep 501’s true blue they should be dry cleaned, not washed.

Another day of discovery arrives in fog… fog, in a hue,the very same as this   text I’ve chosen.

Wild experimentation has led to a myriad of possibilities using tools and techniques from Apple, WP, and accidental goodies.

Unforgettable WordPress

Your Annual Report from WordPress.com

Hi nicolerigets,

Remember me? I’m your website.

I miss you, and so do other people. Did you know that 590 people visited me in 2014, even though you didn’t publish anything new? They like what you have to say!

Maybe you should give them more of what they’re enjoying! How about logging in, looking at what was popular last year and writing about something similar

Your adoring public misses you!

Following this Message I was offered an opportunity to take a complimentary course in  Blogging 101.

My Annual Report from WordPress reminded me of how much I missed writing Blog posts.  Writing manually, using a fountain pen, I work in my Journal almost daily.  This process is different than Blogging because it’s much slower and more contemplative.  When I’m typing on the computer, or along a ‘vintage’ typewriter, words take action, form and shape, and become more than inner sounds.

“High Frequency”
My life is a deck of cards; I never know what will be dealt out to me next. This factor has influenced my blog, and to describe the blog, I would say it’s a “pastiche” of fifteen years journaling and living everyday as a process in the making of art.  I think of this pastiche as a myriad of movements and impressions affecting the pitch and frequency of my life; turning it up and down without my consent.

I’m a published Photographer, Artist and Designer.  In 2004 I graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver B.C. with a BFA and a Major in Photography.  I live by the sea in West Vancouver.

I’ve just changed the appearance of my Blog, to the ‘Hive” theme, and I’m excited to be learning how to assimilate the features it offers into my upcoming Posts relating to Color & Design, Painting, Writing, Photography, Fashion, Poetry, Collage, and Jewellery as wearable Sculpture.  Thank you WordPress for bringing me into 2015… you are Loved! <3
