And Sometimes We Have to Make a Living!

A friend of mine is getting married in April and has asked me to make a wish box for her guests.  having been out of the wedding circles for a number of years now, I had no idea what she was talking about.  Luckily (as you can imagine) there are about a billion websites devoted to wedding stuff.  After some research, I realized what my friend was talking about and this is what I came up with for her.......

Sometimes Silly is Enough!

I often feel as though I should narrow my artistic efforts into a specific genre.  It's almost always collage,, and assemblage, but I am sort of developing my own "style" or "voice".  Sometimes, however, I just want to have fun and slap things down as the mood strikes!  This piece is the  result of a very silly mood.......

Life is a Gift

I've heard that tragedies come in sets of threes.  I don't know about you, but there have been many times in my life when I've stopped counting!  Sometimes sad news travels in packs of three, sometimes as singular occurrences, and sometimes the bad times seem to just keep on rolling with no regard for the "three" rule.  It's at times like these that one can easily slide into a "the world sucks" mode. 

I find myself guilty of this from time to time.  It doesn't take much effort to give in to the temptation of feeling down and believing that life is all about sadness.  It takes a great deal more effort to remember the things that are good and precious about our existence.  

Our family, our friends, and our dreams, those are the things we need to focus on and remember when that old sadness comes creeping in.  It's important to believe that life is a gift.........
Chocolate helps too :)

While sitting through a sermon in church two weeks ago, I drifted into thoughts of frustration over the artist block I had been experiencing since moving back into the studio.  I just wasn't happy with what I had come up with thus far.  Suddenly, a word flashed into my mind that I don't think I had ever used in my life. "Supplication"  On the heels of that word, the picture of a  complete art piece formed in my mind by the end of the sermon.  Miracle of miracles, the piece actually turned out the way I had imagined it!  It feels good......
