As if my creative plate wasn't full enough, I picked up a paintbrush and embarked on my new series. It has been a struggle to overcome some invisible and impermeable barrier between me and the canvas. I planned the paintings, selected color pallets and thought obsessively about the techniques, but couldn't bring myself to touch the blank fabric.
This most recent endeavor will be a 13 canvas series titled "Dialog".
Above is the first in this series that I am willing to share. My careful planning dictates that there should be a delicate and neutralizing wash over the bold color. However, I am drawn into the dynamic between the figures in these colors, and wonder if neutralizing them will also quiet thier thoughts. The piece is more about the interaction, than it is about skin. Such as the creative process; conceive, persue, follow inspiration, divert and arrive at the finale.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of incomplete thoughts, a process of development. This is my Poloroid; I'm sharing it as it changes.
Kindest regards, and wishing you development in your own endeavors.
Imagine my surprise when Cody from the Orange County Arts Council called to tell me I had been selected as "Member of the Month" for February.
I greatly admire the artists in our region, and aspire to be so refined. I would never expect to be honored this way, and I cannot express how humbling it is to be among such talented members and work with this dedicated organization.
Thank you for the compliment, it inspires me to work even harder to earn such a recognition.
My gratitude for the honor, OCAC.
