Life is busy.
In a week's time: we had a crazy busy, hot weekend selling art in Uptown Normal, had a long work week/art week, spent Friday night in Ottawa at an amazing gallery, then back to work, cooking in a non a/c kitchen all day/night yesterday. Whilst sick/enduring ear aches. I told myself I would hit the ground running today. But I'm kind of off to a slow start. 😂😴😜 That's okay though! I've learned to always go with the flow and do what feels right. Which in today's case....might mean, turning on the switch and eating an ice cream cone for brunch. Then maybe later, I'll get to work creating. 🎮 🍦😆 💗
Time flies! We have been so busy ever since Summer Camp. It's been a non stop month but I've loved every minute. And love how many great experiences we've had, meeting so many cool people and talented artists along the way.
I wanted to post this piece, Rapid Expanse. I sold it at Summer Camp and am so glad it found a good home. This one is busy, but as the title indicates, so has life been from the very beginning. 😉
So coming up next, we will be at the Peoria River Front Market on Saturday followed by a two week break to prepare for my favorite show ever...Sugar Creek in Normal! 😍 Which will give me time to make some more crazy creations. 💙
This is a new piece. I've been showing it for about a month now. And I hear a lot of people say, it has a Salvador Dali feel. Which is the ultimate compliment and exactly what I was going for when I put her together. Dali's art introduced me to surrealism when I was little. When I saw a picture of The Persistence of Memory for the first time, I feel like it embedded in my brain and never left. That surreal seed was planted in a groove in my mind. Life is a big unanswered dream and I make art to put some of those dreams onto your walls. 💙 😉 💙
It's hard to believe that @summercampfest is less than a week away! 😵😍💜 I'm looking forward to showing my 2019 SCamp series, to creating, and to meeting new friends and to seeing our friends we met last year!! 😍 All in the company of mi amor, my best friend and partner in crime, @shroobly! 😘 Come find us in Soulshine or out and about, next weekend at everyone's favorite party! 💜
Creative ruts are no joke. Amirite?! I have plenty of things that get my creative juices flowing and projects that I would like try. But when I actually sit down to start something, my mind goes blank. *Poof* All ideas, gone! OR I sit down to start and every idea I’ve ever had rushes into my brain and I get so overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin.
I know my entry for #passiontopaid2019 is like so many other incredible artists out there, wanting to create...to communicate our ideas, or just because it’s something we love, or to make a difference. I would love this opportunity and would be SO grateful to receive this scholarship, but at the end of the day it just makes me heart so happy 💕 to see there are so many of us creating and using our talents in unique ways. WAY TO GO US 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Thank you @homsweethom for sharing your experiences and wealth of knowledge, and using your creativity to better this community!!
