Life.. and art!
Updated: Aug 7, 2020
All these months in the house during the Coronavirus really started to make me think about the art I create. What do I create? Why do I create? Why do I create the way I do?
Do I have answers to these questions? Not really. I create because I enjoy it... but what I create is really a deep conversation that I haven’t finished with yet. What I did decide though, is I need to spend more time creating images of things that represent me. My life, my style, my desires, my body, my faith, my favorite things, etc.....
This piece was created while I was in deep thought. I love to dance, but I don’t do ballet or any formal dancing. So why skinny ballerinas?? Hmmmm.... Seriously, I am a big girl. Why do I always do skinny dancers? Also, why do I shy away from faces? Well, I think that part is changing. I have one almost finished that is of big girls with faces!... lol. Am I growing as an artist? Who the heck knows, but I do know that I really enjoyed making this other piece, so hey... that’s a good thing, right?
But, I am loving this piece that I am sharing today, as well, so all is good. The color, the texture, the movement, the sparkle on the butterflies and the water. It makes me happy and I hope it does the same for you! I have two other pieces on the design board, waiting for me to finish. Both are meant to be companion pieces to this piece.... so maybe some changes, but this one is done, and I love it.
