Thursdays Time Out For Art…

For a long while I was into aging everything in sight.  I love the look of Copper once it has turned to green, and everything I could get my hands on seemed to have a green patina.

This little painting I gave to my daughter-in-law for Christmas a couple of years ago.  She spends some of her time Running, working out, and practicing Yoga.   The symbol is copper, that I worked so hard to get just the right patina on.  The figure was foil which I painted.  This was truly art from the heart.

This little piece I created along with three or four others with the same tribal motif for my daughter, and her husband for the same Christmas.

That Christmas was a Christmas of art!  I don’t usually give away my art,  because the family & friends that may be recipients often have different ideas about their kind of  art, and then feel obligated to hang my pieces somewhere in their homes.  They don’t want to hurt my feelings, I don’t want my feelings to be hurt,  and  if your family can’t support you, who can……

My art sisters however, all love art for the sake of the creative process, and I can count on them to love whatever I create, and share!  Each year at Christmas the five of us draw names, and create something special for whoever’s name I have drawn.  Each month we always have a wonderful Diva day together, but Christmas is particularly special because each of us gets to take home a gift of true love for one another, and the creative process!

I feel truly blessed to have my art sisters, and my art friends.  Their creative energy is amazing!

My creative process has been inspired lately in part by Zebra Designs & Destinations.  I hope you will check out a different kind of art from Zebra, and maybe you to will be inspired.
