Color Play!

Hi Everyone!~Today I’m playing around with colors for inspiration, as I experiment in the Studio….!

I love just simply using colored pencils to imagine different color combinations…

In the Studio~Experiences

Today I was thinking about “experiences“~~times in Life that we see or do something, perhaps for the first time, that gets our attention!….Perhaps it helps us to learn new things, or to encourage us in our daily activities, and maybe even to grow in a new way.

The Present Through the Past (Segovia, Spain, 2014).

Maybe artists and other creatives are more aware of and/or seek out these experiences more than some other people, and they then strive to process these explorations of Life and express them….visually in artworks… or through writing….or the movement of dance…and through the sounds and compositions of music.

When I am in the Studio designing and creating, every piece has a connection with my personal Life experiences, ideas, and feelings. They are “self expressions” gathered from my Life…in which viewers and collectors of art may identify with in some way! An artist’s creation may remind you of a similar experience, or impression you’ve had, or may give you a glimpse into something new that you have never experienced!

*A Question? What type of artistic works are you drawn to and Why?…The type that reminds you of a similar life experience, or ones that are interesting because they are new to you?  🙂

 

 

Autumn Days in the Studio~

Coffee in a Great Pottery Mug!

Today has been a wonderful warm Autumn day! I sat on the porch with my morning coffee…(in my new “birthday” pottery mug from the art shop at Heartwood~~Abingdon, VA)…

And heard a very loud wild turkey in the woods around our house…He never came into view, but it definitely “sounded” like Fall, reminding me that Thanksgiving is just around the corner too!

After some reading, dreaming, and planning, I came inside to work in the studio~~inspired by my time of contemplation!

Currently in the Studio, I’m finishing a small art quilt…designing the small yellow, fractured fish for the next Sea Images piece…and preparing “Fields at Toledo” for layering, threadpainting, and quilting~~

What are your Autumn inspirations?
