This week the focus was on different modes of thinking and different kinds of intelligence. Which mode would be most helpful in your present situation? I thought about how I'm torn between work life and art life lately. I call this one "Take Flight." (These are details.)I'm happy with these collages - they may not be the most beautiful or resolved pieces of art, but they are serving their purpose for me: I'm exploring the subconscious, working on my issues; I'm getting out there with other people; and I am making art! I love that as I work on it, the process takes over. Even if I'm melting in the studio, I'm in the flow and I can work late into the night because I don't want to stop.
This coaster tile is by artist Julia Skerry. I may need to buy more because they fit perfectly on that little sliver of wall in my entry and would be quite lovely all in a row there.
This pocket muse is by Alisa Timmerman, aka Zeldaloo. The doll is perfect for me. We've got the muse thing going, then there's Zeldaloo and Linda Loo, and then the doll's button says "Begin," and her quote says, "Dare to Be Yourself," which is what I've been up to lately.
I also want to mention Lee Meredith, whose set of photos I wanted to buy but I had run out of checks! She's a mega multi-talented artist and craftsperson. Her photography is amazing - she's got a great eye for imagery and composition. Her yarns are beautiful, too! You can see her work here.
After the Art Hop I crossed the world back to the Hillsboro Public Library to grab some more art inspiration and music to boogie to, then back to work in the studio to finish the take flight collage. A great art day! And now time to get busy on this one!
