Came across this self portrait I did during my stay at @ecovillaggiotorrisuperiore during the Visions in the Mischtechnique through @academyofvisionaryart
I can remember feeling a real vibration in my hands! It was a turning point for me as an artist.
On this evening the community was having a big party and everyone was playing music and dancing in the courtyard! It was such a shift from the long hours being stationary in the studio. The energy amongst the group was very intense so everyone was having a blast with that release! Laughter, shoulder shimmy’s, clanking of glasses and the smell of attemptedly discreet hash smoke in the air.
I saw this in my mind and ran upstairs to quickly draw it. I never thought much of it til I recently saw it again. It was a moment that truly awakened my artist hand.
Now when I see it all the memories and connections flood in and I’m taken back to that wild moment of ruckus in that magical castle ruin in the foothills of the Italian Alps.
Art is precious.

Happy birthday to an artist whose words and music have soundtracked many an emotion or piece of art that I have created. Anyone who has followed me for any amount of time is aware how much of a fan of Cold Cave I am. So here's to you Wes! I look forward to any and everything you bestow upon us. Viva Love. 🌻This is an older portrait done with Prismacolor pencils on toned paper. Thanks! #weseisold#coldcave#art#artwork#draw#drawing#illustration#instaart#portrait#Prismacolor
