I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go. I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures. I cannot believe it's been six years now! Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:
1. Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic
2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea
3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while
4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at once
With all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!
Wow have my boys been keeping me busy this summer! So I'm trying to keep up with them plus I've started writing another blog AND we are going on vacation in three days, yikes! This post will be short and sweet, my fabric bowls are a huge hit at the art gallery so I challenged myself to make six more before we go on vacation, I knocked out four but didn't reach my goal of six. So here they are:
I don't work with the color purple that much but I absolutely love how this bowl turned out:
(The purple bowl sold five minutes after I walked in the door with it!)
Thanks for looking and I'll be back in three weeks!
