January 2021 Issue 167
January is named for the exclusively Roman God
who could simultaneously look
backward into the PAST
and forward into the FUTURE...
In ancient Roman Mythology
(with No parallel in Greek Mythology)
may as well have been the God of Multi-tasking:
being the God of: (here we go...)
(which covers just about -
well - everything!)
as we shall soon see...
Janus is typically depicted as having two faces,
since he's always looking out for those
Beginnings and Endings,
and, one presumes, for those Many (like endless) Moments when
Future Transitions to Past.
Well.... very well...
January is typically
the Dollmaker's "Time Off"
and even though she's pretty much
whether she leaves the house or not
she likes the feeling of "being on vacation"
and Vacation, to the Dollmaker, means:
Having Time to Paint!
Time to study Great Canyons and Stone Palaces
Marvels of Erosion...
Imagining mysterious Anthropomorphic Forces
likened to Gods and Goddesses (of infinite patience)
using Erosion as the Ultimate Tool
to to carve in stone - Majestic Images of Themselves...
Standing against the Armies of Time..
the Armies of
..valiantly shoulder to shoulder
stand the colossal Gods and Goddesses
of the Mineral Kingdom
so, it's been a "rocky" month
both on paper and in the back yard...
A Rocky Month Indeed!
Auspiciously, on the
of the New Year...
Good-luck Johnand the Dollmaker took off on a
cold yet rewarding Adventure
foraging for Fossils!
such a particularly auspicious Beginning indicating the clear influence of:
Tripod Spirit Houses
a Continuation of last month's Deviation-from-Dollmaking...
Mystical "Spirit Tents"
casting curious spidery Shadows...
Outside and Indoors...
they attract innumerous Adornments-
a Tripod Hip Camp
for Call of the Wild Characters
who "move with the herds"...
Other Paintings this month:
paintings from memory..
the memory of a certain painting
(lost in the fire)
has been haunting her for years...
Two clusters of characters
in deep shadow..
..so now her "vacation goal" is to
remember how she did it and
re-create her old painting...
Ahoy Matey! Wow!
The Dollmaker's brother, Captain Paul, sent these
"vintage" Calendars- Wee Peeple Memorabilia!
which he found in "deep storage" (under the bed):
It was 1986 when the Dollmaker was one of ten Texas Artists
selected to be featured in this Calendar.
How about that!!! Her copies had all burned in the fire..
Thanks to Paul, Resurrected from
One of the very few Dolls made this January-
a special order
hem hem- Change!? Guess who has that covered? that would be...
is an American Indian Expression for
Eternal Sacred Seasonal Cycles
Poetically personifying Natural Forces
and connecting the "human" with the "divine"
Imparting Wisdom through
Poetry, Music, Symbols
enters- wearing her Winter Cloak.
She sparkles in the Night....
we greet Her with Wonder in our Hearts.
So - One more time! Hail
Ruler of the Ending of this newsletter...
promising a kinder FUTURE for us all...
