A few short years ago I stopped making my art. I was very discouraged after not selling any pieces at my last show. Living in a smaller home with not a lot of wall space to hang anything more, plus my kids were not that excited about my current work. So I put it away.
Well I got it back out and started again when my daughter wanted help decorating her new beach house. Wow, did that open Pandora's box. Not only was I feeling physically and mentally better I couldn't stop creating. The thoughts are endless, I was painting Gesso on a canvas yesterday and saw an idea in the brush strokes. They're everywhere now, I just haven't had enough time to get it all out.
It must just be my time, the encouragement and positive feed back I've been getting thru my Blog have been unbelievable. You like my work, it's so exciting. Thank you so much to Bleubeard and Elizabeth over at Altered Book Lover Blog for featuring me in her Silent Sunday posting. She said some really great things about my art. It's very motivating.
I also joined Leah's Creative Everyday Challenge 2010 which has given me the opportunity to connect with many other artist and share my projects.
Now I'm working towards the coming art fair. I would have never thought I'd being doing something like this. Wow.
Anyway, I was going thru some older pieces I did before I moved into this house. I had wrapped them up and stored them away until today. I thought there might be some pieces I could add to my collection for the art fair. I found this piece I did while I was in therapy, trying to figure out where I was going after my divorce. It is a two part piece that I never mounted. I thought I'd see what you think.
At the time my weaving was always outside the lines and reaching to a new life, this piece I was confused and trying to hard to make to many changes to fast. I always start on the left and work to the right. I got a little muddled, the right side just wasn't working for me. But I really like the colors, and I thought someone might find it interesting.
I guess I have rambled on enough for today. Thanks for listening.
