Christmas Craft and Vendors Show 2019


Liane - Boudreault Longfellow and Don Wright
at l'ecole la Resurrection Christmas Craft and Vendors Show 2019

YaY!! J'ai une Liane - Boudreault Longfellow rame peinte!
I have been eyeing her paddles for a while and I got a beauty! This is going directly to my art studio.  The colors are perfect. It really encompasses everything I love about living here and the beauty of this land. The painting is what I see when I dream or ponder on my my experiences here. I dont dream dull and dreary, I dont ponder black and white. I envision explosive colors. I dont remember the perfection of things, because it becomes spirit to me and I see the imperfections as perfect. I dont remember things like they are a photograph. I remember them for what they do and inspire in me. If I was handed a paddle, a brush any color paint I wanted and asked to paint what makes this place so beautiful, I would paint this...only not as well.

It was great to meet a number of artists and artisans and people from the community. It was fun to share and I was blessed with a few sales.

Just How I Feel ~ Friends of Temagami

22x30 Sharpie on Paper

Friends of Temagami
16x20 Sharpie on Canvas

~Just How I Feel~

Just How I Feel was created for purpose of a digidoodle in 2013. The original was filed away in the "for another day" pile. After multiple relocation's, I lost track of this art. It was a happy day when I found the treasure trove and this was the first piece to be revisited. I grabbed my sharpie marker and embellished it, giving depth to the lines. All of my art starts as a simple doodle and then I go over it and over it, smoothing the lines and responding to the lines, feelings and vibrations. 

This art was directly inspired by my times and adventures in Temagami. This is me (or you) as I dream and visualize my place in creation. I feel the joy of replenishment. I take pleasure in the sights and sounds of our forest and I try to imagine what it is like to be ONE with ALL. As we walk gently, we see and experience more. As we listen quietly, inner truths are revealed. As we become ONE, we realize our interdependence on each other, of our great mother earth and the magnificence of creation. For this, I give thanks to the creator. Its just how I feel.

~ Friends of Temagami~

While I consider my self to be a friend of Temagami, the true friends are the animals and trees. Temagami is a significant place of Vision Quest for many. Its quiet, pristine beauty is unmatched. Many people rest here from their busy lives and recharge. We begin to place ourselves in places like this in our memories and imaginations. We see ourselves as one and its a deeply spiritual feeling. Its a feeling worth protecting.

Two people told me within days of each other,
that I should doodle squirrels.
I thought, what a great idea!
C'est mon premier 'écureuil.

Fishing with the Loons - don wright 2019

SOLD

I love flyfishing.
I love being alone on the river.
I love listening to the birds
and from my spot, I can hear the loons.
I place each cast methodically and faithfully,
with hand tied flies.
Each cast has its own artful beauty.
Each cast is a journey unto its own.
Each cast is a graceful dance,
for it is the cast,
 not the catch that matters.

New Beginnings


"New Beginnings"
16x16 Sharpie on Canvas
SOLD

There is something magical about commission work.
I like to interact with the commissioner
I like to find out about what makes them happy.
Often times, its a result of their dreams and visions of themselves.
Most commissioners know their spirit animal.
This was an exploration of Loon and Hawk.
They share a love of  big pines.
As an artist, this is the most beautiful art I have ever created.
I say this because from the moment I picked up the pencil,
everything flowed with such ease.
I found myself as a third party,
dancing with creation.
Every line was guided by the last line and the future line.
As I went over and over the lines
I developed this attachment of 
pure love, joy and contentment.
I put this back into the art.
I am so grateful for this experience.
The act of creation is the reward in itself.
I do get paid, but that is not what drives my art.
I love this piece and it was such a thrill for it to go to a loving home.
My wish, prayer and intent is that the viewer be filled with
The Fruits of the Spirit
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness and Faithfulness.

Happy Doodleversary

"Happy Doodleversary" don wright 2019
16x20 Sharpie on Canvas

Happy Doodleversary to me! 

I have been doodling for 10 years now and its my doodleversary. 
I was 48 years old when a master artist told me I too was an artist. He challenged me to do a doodle and it blew me away. I never realized that this talent was within. I studied the shamanistic arts with him and learned how to unlearn and to approach art as a child. 

When I was a child, I drew as a child, and now that I am a man, I draw like a child..haha. I learned at an early age that a face was round and had 2 eyes, a nose and a mouth. Thats all I really needed to know, but faces got complicated. Things got complicated. Everything seems to have a complication. Thats why I returned to the sandbox to doodle in the sand. 

Today I celebrate 10 years as a child.
