Busy painting this week but the mild weather is getting me in the mood to mix some concrete!
This time of the year as the weather turns warmer I get anxious to get outside. Past years this included getting outside to begin creating my concrete art for the year. I did have a separate studio (not heated) near where I lived, so every spring when the temperature became warmer and the sun came out, I could get outside to begin my new creations for the summer.
This year however I do not have that space yet, so my 2012 summer concrete art will be getting a late start. The exciting news is that I WILL be getting a new HEATED studio! It will be warm and larger, allowing me to create new exciting pieces all year long. I'll stay in touch when this happens. It shouldn't be too much longer!
Meanwhile, I'm painting like crazy and hope to have my Alzheimer's series finished soon.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
