A New Reason to Bead




After a couple of rejections from the SB Art Association, I thought I'd give it one more try.  I talked myself into having hope that the Abstract Art Collective might be more open minded about defining "art".    So, I brought three pieces to their live jury day in April.


From my brief experience, it seems that people who work in abstraction are more open minded.  Instead of being branded with the label "craft" and sent on my way, I was instead welcomed and accepted as a member!


I've just finished two pieces to donate to the SEE Fundraiser.  All the SEE pieces are done on 10 x 10 inch wooden studio panels, which worked out perfectly, that's such a good size for my stuff. 

Abundance

Within
My creative process is currently being tempted by multiple sparkling visions swirling around.  But, as soon as I try to grab one, it dissolves into mist.  I have to remind myself to be patient.  Those ideas are not ready yet.   Their time will come.

  3. You found your place and they will be even better for having you with them! Congratulations!!! Abundance grabbed hold of me immediately ~ the top and bottom...the green circles and the green curves are just wonderful ~ the division between the two with the M-O-P and lavender is necessary and right. That FIRE Within is just so strong, raw, emotional, initially loud then softened, perfect.
