My latest painting takes a dreamy turn

Body_Feb232012

I turned one of my unfinished paintings on it's side, because I was not feeling the dark woman standing there.
I've discovered a happier scene. One that has a sunset, tree, and comfortable living space.

I am excited to see where this one goes and if this spurt of inspiration will be contagious.

Art for Mind's Sake

Collage_1
Since I was a little girl, art, creation, and imagination were always second nature. My mother cultivated a strong sense of creativity in me and my dad, the notion that the 'sky's the limit'.

Today, art is my method for exploration. With every creation, I discover the secrets and answers within me... the only way I know how.

As I search for clarity in my work and life, I work with colored smelly markers and large pads of white paper for mind mapping, spontaneous sketches, brainstorm diagrams, and streams of consciousness.

My latest 'discovery session' resulted in an eye-opening collage. I worked on this piece for about a week, adding new images and markings little by little every day.

When I look at this collage, I am reminded that of my favorite quote by Pablo Picasso: "Everything you can imagine is real".  These images represent me, where I've been, where I am, and where I'd like to go. 

Themes:
Art
Creation
Confidence
Femininity
Vision
Hands-On
Direction
City Life
Discovery/Inquiry

...and more?

Poem for Mikewl

Mikewl 4

On the Lake

silence...
distant tones muted
the birds fly low

At once, we spin like ice on the sink
slowly, we stop on a new landscape

Green, blue, gray
white, they blend

your hair is brown
your eyes glimmer like the ripples
before us

in silence
we stay

in silence
we glow

silence...

in love
