I'm posting from my creative space where I
dream and dream some more.
In this cozy and sometimes, very cluttered room,
I also create. It's the place where I am learning to
define the gypsy soul that dwells inside of me.
I am seeking.
I am striving.
I am in it with all my heart.
Vincent Van Gogh
My thoughts and ideas stumble over each other and try
to find a place of validation through the work of my hands.
Here is the place where I escape one
reality to enter another.
Both are places of contentment but they
are usually worlds apart!
Upon occasion, they find a way
to blend in perfect harmony.
Today, I'd like to share with you one of the few
mixed media projects that I've done.
I love to work in this realm.
It's like a reckless abandon through
my creative spirit.
What would life be if we had no courage to
Vincent Van Gogh
These projects usually take me a long time
because I have not yet learned to fully
let my heart lead and I worry about
making a mess or mistake. I also am
learning about color, texture and balance.
And I am always open to suggestions
and re-direction :)
I have been thinking of beginning a
sort of study of the Masters.
Any suggestions or recommendations here?
I love this quote by Vincent Van Gogh.
I long so much to make beautiful things.
But beautiful things require effort,
disappointment and perseverance.
Does it speak to you?
There is so much going on here
(maybe too much) that it would be too
lengthy to explain the entire process.
But here is a list of the "ingredients"...
vintage sheet music
Gesso was brushed on the sheet music
first and then I painted over it with
a creamy white paint to soften the white.
I painted a red heart and chose my
co-ordinating colors and began to build.
I'm learning to thin paint and to use it
to splatter.. I love the look.
Expression without a box.
Still in the planning stage..

Wishing you good things and
thank you so much for stopping by.
