Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!
Well, it has been a long week. My daughter has been ill, but - I've also found myself unhappy with a lot of what I've been doing artistically this week. I imagine all artists go through this from time to time - I have before... It is part of the "work" of being an artist: looking for new perspectives, trying to express myself in new ways, etc. I'm posting this little painting - which is the result of a cupcake I found at a restaurant I visited last weekend. But, this seems like (although delicious looking) a painting that is quite traditional ~ and I have been feeling the need to stretch myself in new directions! Stay tuned ... I hope I'll have some new things to show you soon!
