Hello and Welcome to my blog.
This blog is a space where I share my artist life. The daily business, ebb and flow of being an artist. An introduction to me and my art can be found here...
My intention is to keep blog posts short with lots of visual content and inspirations. On my sidebar you will see three words......Connect. Inspire. Nurture. These three words summarize what is important to me and the way I wish to live my life. They form the manifest-o for this blog.
Connect .... with people (individuals and community); with Art...my own and other artists; with my inner self; with my dreams.
Inspire....be inspired by the world around me, by other people; share the inspiration; be the inspiration.
Nurture....family and home; creativity and art; connections; inspirations received and given; belief in oneself.
Connect, inspire, nurture....an investment in a happy and full life.
My inspiration table is a collection of items that have caught my eye and 'sparked' inspiration! Some items are found, (the pohutukawa flower I found on the lawn at my cottage & the dandelion was growing in the garden), others are personal treasures. I have added in other media elements such as stamps and papers that would combine well together. What combinations could create a painting?
Some vintage sheet music I recently found at a local second-hand shop. Some of it will find its way onto the ground of a painting.
My Inspiration Table will be a regular feature.
Have a great weekend
