Bat Spirit

Acrylic, ink, (alcohol texture) on gesso coated w/c paper with collage, (Muse Group demo this week)

Night dark with wings and banners blowing. . .Go!  Push play! Be ready for what comes flapping at dusk. . . causing confusion, stomach flutters, fear ricocheting off the surfaces of awareness.  Bat Spirit comes not to upset, but to shake things loose.

Have you seen the movie “Black Swan” yet?  I think there’s a bit of that in this piece.  I won’t tell you why, in case you haven’t seen it.  The movie is both a frightening and exalted excursion into the recesses of the unconscious, the dark side of the mind.  Perhaps I took a little excursion there. . .even while enjoying the company of the Muse Group!
