Elder Moon ©James McCune 2013


December 17, 2013 was an Elder full moon. Supposedly a high energy moon, conducive to certain types of magic. According to the internet, certain signs are more effect by this moon than others, mine, Pisces, being one of them. I don’t know how to do magic but this moon still ended up being some what magical for me. I haven’t shot with a “real” camera in over a month and this moon got me out there. It felt really great and improved my mood tremendously.

Glass Ceiling © James McCune 2013
Lately I feel like I am pressed up against a glass ceiling. I feel creative but it’s all trapped, I can’t get it out of me. Every day at work (I work at a craft store) I see all these art supplies and get new ideas for things but it never goes anywhere. I always stall out and get stuck between fatigue and a black soul. I have a good amount of photos siting around from the fall, this is one, as well as many half completed projects. I know this will clear and I’ll produce again but I wish I didn’t have periods like this. It’s been months! The longer it goes the more anxious I get. What if I lose this gift due to these inactive periods? What would I even do with myself then?? I’ll never progress if this keeps happening.

Spill Your Guts ©James McCune 2013I've finally been able to get this scanned! This piece was made to represent all the back logged feelings I have about finding my grandmother dead when I was 8 years old. It happened in November 1997, and Fall was always the family’s favorite time of year. Now fall has become a season saturated in repressed emotion and depression, at least for my mother and I. I have been dealing with it in many ways since then but lately I’ve been trying very hard to let it go completely. I want to change the way I look at it and get the sludge out of me finally. I made this piece with mashed raspberries, food coloring, and a leaf. I applied the raspberries and one coat of food color and then baked the piece in the oven for 5 minutes. I then applied more food coloring and baked it once again. The scanner cut it off a bit.
