Meaning behind the art: This week after getting back from my workshop, I had to get back into the home life and well one of the ways is to create in the studio. But when I got up there….my creative juices had fizzled. I wanted to create a piece despite my low energy and what happened is so very basic I thought…well I did something and this will get me to the next one.  Sometimes creating something isn’t what you might have wanted but its still important to do it as it could be the half step you need to make it the full step.

#022618-A, "Fern Valley " 6 x 12 Collage on Watercolor paper, mounted on 1 ½ wood panel

Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, Gloss medium, acrylics, stained tissue paper, gesso and acrylic brown grocery bag, sanded magazine, painted drawing paper, stencils, wax crayons, black book thread, sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.

Meaning behind the art: This collage was created in my class to demonstrate how to mount a collage that was done on watercolor paper to a wood panel.  And the black threads applied by drilling holes through the wood with a hand drill.  Not realizing the choices I make sometimes when creating a big sheet of paper like the brown grocery bag and using many tools like stencils and stamps. I got the fern stamps from a Good Will find.  When assembling the collage and arranging the papers the image of fern was picked to be part of the foreground of the collage.  My thoughts were flashed by to the movie Avatar. I think I might have watch that again.   The thing is the piece of artwork has really no relationship to the movie but that it has directed me back to watch it has a heighten awareness for me.

 #021218-A, “Grunge Heart,” 8 x 8 Collage on watercolor paper, 2” white mat all sides ready for a frame 12 x 12 frame

Materials Used: 140 lb. watercolor paper, gloss medium, painted drawing paper, printed tracing paper, graphite crayon, black thread, acrylic paints, sealed with a UV satin Varnish

Meaning behind the art: Valentines days is Wednesday of this week my thoughts there.  Creating a piece with a heart in it.  My word also this year is Heart, and my color palette lately has been a bit bolder and grungier.  I’m thinking it’s because of the time of year where there is more hunkering down inside and more time to mull around in the head. Though I’ve been moving quickly into the heart zone a lot easier. There’s no denying the feelings. As we are learning these days it’s time to lean into them and really feel it.  I love strongly and equally feel the hurt strongly daily happenings.  A bit dramatic but why not put it where it counts.
In the Art, with Heart

Meaning behind the art: This piece was made a while back and I find it fitting now, with the new year in action I’ve let go of some things or more so released them and there is this space which I’m cautious about filling up. So, when I saw this piece yesterday while I was in the studio I looked at the white area as a purpose to be what it was and needs to be. Instead of rushing to fill an area that you may have cleared clutter away from or decided not to drag around.

Meaning behind the art: Today I did something different I meet up with some artists and we went to a place for teachers to select unwanted books and teaching supplies.  We were all like kids in a candy store.  Afterwards we went for Lunch and it just capped off a wonderful experience.  Changing routines up now and then is like trying a new dish with great spices. Its winter time in my neck of the woods, adding a gathering with like-minded people or visiting a new place is good for the mind, body and soul.  You can’t go wrong when you switch it up!

Meaning behind the art: Made dinner and felt the need to make something-heading up to the studio.  I also wanted to see graphite pencil marks, lines, angles and a white background. So that was my choice of palette for the Tack Down piece today.  There was something gratifying about use the pencil and scribbling with it. My emotional state felt intense and I just wanted to let go, surrender to the page, the surface in front of me. A chat around a table earlier in the day was brought up about the balancing our lives. Isn’t that what we are all trying to do?  These days with our technology…which does make things easier in some ways but then offers up so many more choices that are spent sucking up our time trying to make. Another reminder in all this, is to just keep life as simple as possible.

Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, polymer medium, acrylics, wood panel, glazing medium acrylics, scrap collage papers from painted papers and magazines with graphite and  wax crayons and sealed with a layer of UV stain varnish.


Meaning behind the art: Three things, Purple palette, not my favorite to work with so I’m always exploring how I can use other colors with it.  The Jumping Mice in this art remind me of one of my evening at the horse stables when waiting for the horse I was to ride to come out I witness a small mouse running on the barred window railing where the horses look out.  Cutest little thing and I don’t think anyone else saw him. The last thing was this past weekend I went up to visit my parents and go to the flea market in Princeton WI but ended up talking and enjoying ourselves.  We headed home and the husband and I sitting next to each other had a case of the sillies and laughed so hard tears were coming down our checks.  He almost had to pull over.  They’re all very intimate moments.

Keeping it Together
8 x 8 artwork
Matted with a walnut frame
 12 x 12 

I pulled out some papers and was attracted to the straight edge of the red/blue and the magazine paper made with stamp in a polymer resist and removing the ink with Nevr Dull.  So this piece was inspired by the papers and an emotional state...of just trying to keep it together.
