Sunset Dancing – The Hollow Ones #40

The heat is tremendous and the music fills me with joy. I imagine and hear beautiful people dancing for the rains to come and gently break the heatwave. The heat holds us in place and begs us to wait for it to play with the atmosphere and paint the world with fiery colours. Standing still … Continue reading Sunset Dancing – The Hollow Ones #40

In a rain of 80s new wave music – The Hollow Ones #39

Spotify has caught on that I'm nostalgically in love with New Wave music from the 1980s. I didn't follow it as a teenager growing up then, but I didn't follow my own tastes back then. Friends had way too much influence over what I experienced. Thank goodness I've fallen in love with my own likes. … Continue reading In a rain of 80s new wave music – The Hollow Ones #39

A Bit Of A Funk Approaching – The Hollow Ones #35

I didn't wake up feeling this way, at least, I think I didn't. A minor family crisis greeted us before our first coffee and a feeling of tension filled the air. When it was over, a sadness approached and hung about like a stink. The sky became overcast and heavy, instead of great lighting for … Continue reading A Bit Of A Funk Approaching – The Hollow Ones #35

A Darkness Fell – The Hollow Ones #33

The night fell and it became so dark that even the music became covered by it. We know it's there but can hardly hear it. It floats behind the darkness. Our little figure has become the source of light within this darkness. Our behatted friend, Monteferro, perhaps a little too inebriated to know what is … Continue reading A Darkness Fell – The Hollow Ones #33

Monteferro’s Hat – The Hollow One’s #32

Now we know the name of the gentleman who wore the floppy top hat. Here, it sits perched on a lamp base, a bannister post, or some other ornament around his house. Out of context from its usual position atop his head, it retains its personality. Perhaps it is the hat that gives Monteferro his … Continue reading Monteferro’s Hat – The Hollow One’s #32

A Childlike Glee – The Hollow Ones #31

Maybe it's the lack of motivation due to the Covid-19 isolation, but I may be getting to a point where I need to let the hollow ones go for a while. This one followed a short meditation. I remembered the great walk I took yesterday where I saw little kids blissfully dancing in a part. … Continue reading A Childlike Glee – The Hollow Ones #31

Once, When I Found This Cool Hat – The Hollow Ones #26

Funny how this floppy, dusty top hat floats around my imagination. Perhaps part of me is still stuck in the 1800s. With all the anxiety revolving around Covid 19 (This image drawn on March 16th, 2020), my mind must be looking for connections to make some sense of it all. The only conclusion I can … Continue reading Once, When I Found This Cool Hat – The Hollow Ones #26

What If We're The Aliens? – The Hollow Ones #26

I intended something else for this, but the black pastel took over and changed the shape of the head... it suddenly looked alien, instead of human. Then I started to question if all my heads looked alien. This wasn't so much self-doubt as it was fascination. I have a belief that we often draw from … Continue reading What If We're The Aliens? – The Hollow Ones #26

Temptation – The Hollow Ones #24

Here she is again, only sometime further in her career... career in what? I don't know. My imagination says she's some sort of spy, a female James Bond type. In control of her decisions, but not free of her emotions... just like him. Here she is the temptress in her cool dress, in a space … Continue reading Temptation – The Hollow Ones #24

Dangerous Elegance – The Hollow Ones #23

I did another version of this pretty lady a few days ago and I find the image keeps coming back as if I'm not entirely finished figuring out what she wants to say. Is she trolling the ballroom? Is she confident or scared? Is she a predator or victim? What does this reflect from my … Continue reading Dangerous Elegance – The Hollow Ones #23
