There's something incredibly moving about this image. It's lighthearted and heavy at the same time -- the tourists are notably exhauste...

I love critiquing....

Hey hey hey ... this is all that I'm working on lately.  If you want more live-updates, follow me on Instagram (moiravee).
I have a HUUUUGE series that I want to start soon that has a lot of personal significance, however, I have a feeling it might not get off the ground till New Year ....  school is inspiring me, but it's been really hard to find time to paint in between the workload!!  I guarantee it's going to be worth the wait, though.
Another update, my work is everywheeeere, lol 
A Change is Gonna Come by Mivala
A Change is Gonna Come
"A Change is Gonna Come" - alt. "Meridian"
16"x20" acrylics on canvas.
Alternatively "Change is Gonna Come".

This one is, interestingly enough, a lot prettier in person. I based it off of an actual tree that changes colors in the graveyard across the street~
Ultimately, I ended up reflecting on a fact I heard recently regarding trees and their leaves (I believe WilliamDallwitz was one of the folks to mention it to me). With our limited sight capabilities, we never really see the full tree -- we see parts of it. And even so, our mind fills in what we don't necessarily see in the first place ...
I suppose there's a metaphor in there somewhere. I heard something similar regarding how our eyes are actually designed to see the world upside-down, but because light filters through a certain way, it puts everything in a way that's understandable to us. Allegedly experiments have been done where people wear goggles that turn their vision upside down again, and after a short time (plus a lot of head-aching), the mind is able to flip everything back to "normal".

So essentially, one could say this piece is a loose commentary on perspective and what we think we see.
Or we could call it a reflection of life... of autumn, the ending of summer, etc.
Or how about a tribute to orange?...

Or perhaps just the painting of a tree.

I suffer the joys of being trapped in a constant state of wonder. I'm always trying new mediums and evolving my philosophy on life; create, learn, repeat. I love that which I don't understand -- be it language and music, thoughts, ideas, math & science, etc.... foreign cultures fascinate me. As do sharks (for whatever reason).

I adore the DA community and the conversations that I get to have around here. I'm overly-zealous and hideously sentimental, etc. etc.

My art is what it wants to be. I consider myself a surrealist/psychedelic artist at heart, but I dabble in a little of everything. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about my creative services or life itself~!

So I was literally in the spotlight of a live show yesterday, haha

I have art for you, yes, soon.  Busy busy busy, finagling my way around University life...... I had an incredible experience last night, though.... I did a live painting demonstration atop a balcony at variety show/concert.  I met so many people,... had so many epiphanies and I'm just too giddy to know what to do with myself right now, haha 

Ultimately, at intermission, I had the audience invited to take the elevator up to my position and add to my painting -- TO MY UTTER DELIGHT, a huge crowd came up in a line to introduce themselves, take pictures and to play around in my paints.  It was such a beautiful thing.

And still I am a body of mixed emotions because of all the things transpiring in this past couple weeks, but this event will certainly stick with me for the rest of my life.

I'll post a picture of the painting and photos from the event (and maybe my video interviews and the promotional clips?!) as soon as I can get around to it.  This week I have some requests to finish .... with more pouring in!! Yes yes yes I am a mess of emotions and sentimentality this week, haha 

I hope all is well! :heart:
