Collaging my Illusions

I couldn’t think of a better title than that. Because when I think about it….it’s my illusions that hit the canvas, the art table, my outside expressions of art.  I realize that it is truly about color with me. I drink in the colors and do many things I do because of them. For example the green of the grass and the trees motivates me to go outside and move around (even though sometimes I know I should stay more focused!). The color of the skys determine whether I will do the beach today or the craft store. For real! I know that sounds crazy but if I go out and the sky has lots of fluffy clouds but its a brilliant crisp shade of watery blue… Beach here I come.  If  there are darker clouds and they are less cottony in appearance and the sky is pale I may decide to hit the craft store or go hang out at one of my favorite places instead. I know that’s all a matter of life but sometimes we don’t stop to think about the things that really help motivate us. We always talk about the people that motivate us…

But what about the things, won’t somebody please tell me! LOL Just kidding.

Anyway, thats me rambling and this is me Collaging my Illusions!

This is various pieces I’ve created over the past year.

All of them using my favorite products, GlimmerMist, Alcohol Inks and Gesso.

COLLAGING MY ILLUSIONS

Come Kick Back at my Studio

This painting was done on June 22nd as a Challenge to myself.  One day, One painting to Celebrate Summer…and chill out 🙂

My Inspiration

We all have something that inspires us to move, to create, to be.  For me, it’s Nature. As dangerous as it can be, it can be twice as beautiful and calming. The ocean has always head a special place in my heart, especially since I grew up in Southern Cali and spent as much of my time as possible at the beach. This piece was created last year during a weekend retreat at Asilomar.

From the Minds of Babes!

I’m always impressed by intelligent and artistic young folks. I’ve met many, rarely this young.  The young lady that created this piece of art is 8, you heard me…8!  Were it a plain pic of a tea pot I’d give the usual props…. however, this young lady is already in the zone.  Shadows, shading, detail. I love it.

Big ups to Mahlia Jackson, Age 8, Northern Cali.

THE MUSIC OF LIFE!

A Book Expressing A Love For Music

A Book Expressing A Love For Music

As I sit listening to some wonderful old school music and crafting and creating I think with a smile how much influence music has had on my life. Having been born in the 60s I’ve certainly lived through many changes in music style and taste. Sadly with a lot of music nowadays not much is left to the imagination but thankfully there is always technology to keep the past in the present with music. I can be accused of hording some old cassettes and even a few records but love the way you can get some much music into so little space now.

Music Pages Two Music PagesMusic Book Three

This little book covers all types of music and is transparent in the center so looks great in front of a light. Its a fun way to put so much feeling about something into a little space.

I realize that at some point in each day I hear music and find that its actually become a necessity for me. I also realize that the dances I did back then are the only dances I can do now LOL.  What a great gift music is!
