From the Studio,
Working on my Attitude~

So when I'm not in the studio I want to be in the studio especially around the holidays. All the creative energy around makes me want it even more...time that is in the studio. Ideas are flaring up all over the place and I can't execute them.  A bit frustrated is more like it. Whining like a little child, You betcha.  Do any of you have this problem? or is it just me? 
I think my inner child is welling up, yikes.
Well, the grace in this all is the holidays pass so quickly, but the down side if you hold a blinked to long you miss it.  And that I really don't want to do

With knowing that change is a constant and life events happen in moments...One, myself might want change my attitude about the holiday and do the mindful- stay present behavior and savor these precious moments as they arrive.

 Holiday events are happening everywhere... if you're in the Aurora IL area, December 1st is First Friday's,  has a load of activity going on.  A whole new exhibit is now hung at the Paramount Grand Gallery

From my  heart with love,
  thank you 
for supporting a working artist, 
if it weren't for you all 
this wouldn't be possible.

Collage Art for your Collection

Imperfect Reality fr

#112717-A, "Imperfect Reality" 12x 12 collage art on watercolor paper with a 4” white mat to the final size of 20 x 20 Frame.  


Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, polymer medium, acrylics, painted drawing paper, printed drawing paper, black book thread, stamping, glazing, and graphite crayon sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: The post-Thanksgiving holiday is an imperfect reality.  This reality is so rich and real it gives way to deep emotions of human relationships.  Using the contrast of black and white to symbolize how most of us see life when in fact there are more gray areas of our imperfection as human beings to accept.   The red circle in my collage work symbolizes healing.  Though I had a wonderful thanksgiving with our family and friends I know that others haven’t and this is when I create pieces as a raw statement to symbolize our reality that it’s not always pretty but in its imperfect way it is so wonderful pure.
