About Carl Jung

Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who originated such well-known psychological concepts as the archetype and the collective unconscious, has provided inspiration to people ranging from Joseph Campbell to Bill Wilson, the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. He was born in 1875 in a small town; he studied with Sigmund Freud before parting ways due to the radical difference in their views of human nature. Jung is considered second only to Freud in his influence on modern psychology, particularly in the area of dream analysis. He died in 1961.

Seagulls – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Sharpie

I painted this from a photo by Mary Y. at WetCanvas.  I wonder if all seagulls have spotted tail feathers or just Aussie seagulls.  (Mary lives in Australia.)

They said on the news that where I live in Oklahoma is the hottest part of the country today.  We broke a record for the highest overnight low ever.  When I was driving in to work at 5 am, it was 87 F.  Normally I don’t come in that early (or post my blog this late) but I spent 5.5 hours putting graphics all over a Carpet Cleaning van in my non-air conditioned shop.  It’s only 11:30 and I’m whooped.  But, I’m done with the van.  YAY!!!  I’m staying in the air conditioned part of the sign shop the rest of the day.  You can’t make me go out there!  😀

Carl Gustav Jung (/ˈjʊŋ/ YUUNG; German: [ˈkarl ˈɡʊstaf ˈjʊŋ]; 26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961) was a Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of the extraverted and the introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in the study of religion, literature, and related fields.

Individuation is the central concept of analytical psychology. Jung considered individuation, the psychological process of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious while still maintaining their relative autonomy, to be the central process of human development

This is a 5″ x 7″ watercolor and sharpie painting I did from a photo by Christine (Crispur) at WetCanvas.  Of course, I got there early, before all the people and stuff arrived.  The only guy I saw there was the orange cone guy and he was doing an awesome job!  🙂

Ohio Barn – 10″ x 7″ Watercolor on Masa

This was another fun one.  I quit fiddling with it after an hour and a half, to let the simplicity remain.  Masa paper makes me want to fiddle with detail, because it’s so much fun to see it develop.  🙂

The image was from Catherine at WetCanvas.

We got a little rain shower this morning!  It was wonderful.  It may not do much to help our drought, but it was great, just the same.
