You would not think, from this warm but rather staid portrait of our beloved vampiress, our devoted composer of music for art, Lolita, that she was a creature of intense passions and desires. But in fact, even before she was bit, she was rather boy-crazy. Ironically, after her transformation, when passion and desire only intensified, her ability to harness, to channel that potentially destructive drive, improved significantly. Perhaps uncharacteristically, Lolita has found a way to quench the undeniable need for the red stuff with the returns of routine nocturnal hunting – rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks have sufficed. The majority of her powerful passion and desire she has managed to engage in her creative work.
When passion and desire not only serve as creative drivers for our Girl, but become the very subject of her creative project, Lolita finds herself particularly challenged to maintain the emotional and metaphysical balances she has attained over the past 150 years.
With her recent discovery of artist Julie Fain’s evocative silhouette piece ‘Unspoken’ (at www.audiosparksforart.com), our Lady was confronted with that very challenge. The painting tells the story of a beautiful young mermaid, full of desire, who needs the love of men. But her kiss brings death. How this tragically tinged narrative resonates with our dear Composer of Music for Art!
Composing music for this piece was quite a growth opportunity for Lolita, as she involved herself in the mermaid’s affair, as she told the couple’s story in sound. The experience of the project intensified Lolita’s own sometimes violent passions and desires, for love, for exercise of power and strength, and yes, for blood.
Lolita wanted to share the happy ending to this recent challenge, this recent growth opportunity. She discovered, as our wise reader most likely has, that the power of her commitment to the creative process, and the equally powerful drive that kicks in to finish creative work, enabled our Girl to continue channeling highly intensified personal passion and desire into her creative process. Support systems proved important also. In our Girl’s case, a few extra nighttime prowls with her devoted Deuce, and an emergency visit from her dear and reliable lover, Lizard King, enabled Lolita to sustain intense feelings and drives, to carry her project to a good finish.
When your demons are howling more loudly than usual, prompted by themes in your creative work, or by experiences in mundane life, Lolita wants to assure you that your profound commitment to the creative process, and the unique productive drives available to you as an Artist, will carry the day, will make of it all a successful experience of artistic growth.
