Back in the Studio~In 2020!

HAPPY NEW YEAR’s!

It’s amazing to believe, not only a New Year, but a new Decade has begun! And, with it comes new goals, dreams, and activities to strive for in the Studio…

A big Thank-you to everyone who ordered Art, Prints & Cards during the Holiday season! 🙂 Artists everywhere appreciate being supported in that way!

Sets of Cards…

Currently in the Studio, besides doing Inventory and other administrative activities, January began with me completing the printing of some Art Card orders….

And, enjoying the quiet of the studio to hand-roll the edges of this beautiful Italian Silk Scarf! More about that soon! 🙂

I’m also in the imagining stage of the next Visions of Spain piece…

Planning time to continue work on the Child’s Play piece on the cutting table…

And piecing the background of the Sea Images piece!

So, time to get back to work!! …Huummm, maybe more***** snow****would help!? 🙂

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.

Visions of Spain~inspired by travels to a new place!

(Click to read more about each series and piece in the Gallery!)

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.

Child’s Play~expressions of how children grow and development.

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!

 

Nature’s Perspective~inspired by the nature experienced around me.

    Sea Images~ images of the  ocean’s magical treasures inspired by trips to the beach and aquariums.

 

*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?  🙂
