I am in the beginning stages of working on my assemblage pieces. There is so many things in my head to make. So I have organized totes to hold collected materials for each work with a mini sketch of what I want to make from my found objects. While doing that I get to clean the studio area up to get ready for classes once again. I have several watercolor backgrounds made and am awaiting confirmation from the spiritual creative on what it wants on them.
Sometimes I look at the backgrounds and say to myself " don't try to figure it out just let it be until it's time to unveil to the brain what is there". I would make you dizzy if you followed me around multi-tasking my works and creations. I may glue on this work and while that dries I can paint on this one. Then as they both are drying I work on a mixed media piece. Then it's time for lunch.
The work is a piece that I abandoned randomly in a grocery store in another town, I have perhaps 20 pieces being discovered around in five states and one even secretly made it's way into the famous Billtmore Mansion, in North Carolina. There will be more when time allows for extras here and there.
I guess the reasons I do so many different works and medias is ...one... I never get bored... two... some places only want my whimsical, some my more spiritual, and others my more intense works. That gives me different avenues to sell in. Some people may think that is being less serious about my art... but I guarantee you it is being MORE serious. MY passion drives my work to be what it is. I may not have time to post my best pieces online but I at least take that time to create them. Those that are seriously interested in my works will let me know when they need more. What is good for one gallery may not be for another, but that doesn't mean the dedication behind any given style is less important. I fill the need for which ever gallery chooses which ever style. Perhaps to some galleries this is a crazy or bad decision ... but my works all intertwine and people recognize the style that blends them all together.
My art is important to me because it has a message.... and the person it is suppose to touch will see it when it's time.
Share your passion !!!!!
