On the easel, ALMOST done. I'm using the underpainting as an important layer in the image, and trying to honor all layers as I gently add color. Trying not to favor one over the others, giving them equal attention. When the light changes in the room, the colors almost pop into 3d. This painting feels like an experiment and I'm enjoying it.

After removing the visor from an old baseball cap, I affixed the cap part to the underside of the kokoshnik headdress so it will be easier to wear. It will also be more steady. I'm going to continue to decorate it and deck it out. The word 'cardinal' in the front will be covered with beading or embroidery. It's a fun project. #art #headdress #kokoshnik #handmade #velvet #robynbellospirito

I made this kokoshnik headdress a few years ago, but I'm going to work on it a bit more, not only to make it easier to wear but to add more decorative elements. It was a lot of work to create, with careful measuring and delicate hand sewing around the edges of the red velvet fabric, but I'm so happy with how it has turned out so far. #costume #headdress #kokoshnik #red #redvelvet #headpiece #crown #art #artist #robynbellospirito

Here's a small portion of my performance with Jimi at KrazFest. I've been having some health issues, so dancing with "the buddies" made it easier. Felt good to move, and because of my "limitations" with my health, I found a way to move that I wouldn't have otherwise. In that way, my limitations have become a strength. I don't call myself a dancer, but an artist who dances. I love movement, have taught butoh and slow movement and find it to be very healing. Movement is good medicine.

Photos of my performance with Jimi Durso titled "Cosmic Shadow", captured by photographer Andrea M. Gordon at KrazFest 2018 in Huntington Station, NY. I'm enjoying doing these multiple-photo posts. (Swipe sideways for more photos.)

This amazing woman has literally saved my life a few times in recent years. Here we are in the hospital a couple of weeks ago waiting for a test, making jokes and funny faces. She is what some might call an earth angel. She's definitely a wise woman and I'm so blessed to know her and have her as a friend. Because of her kindness, care, expertise and intuition, my eyesight will be saved with surgery in a couple of days. How do you thank someone for this? Words don't seem adequate for the immense gratitude I feel. Oh my. I might not be able to post on here for a couple of weeks because of the recovery process, but I'll try. Thank you, dear friend, for all the love you give to many and the bright light you are in the world. #gratitude #wisewoman #blessed #earthangel #blessings #friendship #love #healing #robynbellospirito #lymewarrior
