Abner Dean

I've added this link so I can take it off my favorites list. The site is is a comics extravaganza. Too back it takes so long to load. Click below and then click on Abner Dean, and check out "What am I doing here?"

ATC's: Making Marks

As I clear up my studio in preparation for the year of marking making to come, I am finding things that cannot yet be tossed. I have started a box for 2011-2012 for the year's collection. Nothing larger than 8 1/2 by 11 inches.

Humpback Whale Link--8 minutes of Joy

My cousin Linda sent me this inspiring video. It takes about 8 minutes to watch, but well worth it.

ATC, "The Path of the Fool"

Art-4-Art, Lyons Depot Library, September 17, 2011

Title: “The Path of the Fool”

Art & design by P. Jeanette O’Rourke,M.A.

Origami Exploding Page inside a double ATC watercolor.

INSIDE TEXT: The Path of the Fool

"What the Fool exhales, the Fool inhales.

There is no feminine for Fool.

In the Descents, the sex of the Fool alternates.

The inner strives to become the outer.

"The Outworld others are self reflected.

Seeing others as Self, the soul seeks to make amends.

Balanced again, the Fool descends.

New thoughts become wrought deeds.

"All below is image, and names perish.

The Virgin in the Fool’s eye does not perish.

The Virgin Waters generate their own light.

Without separation, the is no illumination."

—p. 357, “The Zelator,” by Mark Hedsel;

introduction and notes by David Ovason

Success. It is now linked to my blog.
