FINDING MY VOICE BLOGGING & NEW PAINTINGS FROM FANTASY COLLECTION
I wanted to share with you that I am learning that as I proceed with my blogging, I am finding that I am having trouble focusing in on my creative voice. I seem to be all over the place lately, and unable to focus on one thing. I've been wanting to do everything my heart conjoures up creatively and I realize that there is not enough time or energy to literally do everything I want to do. I wonder and am baffled how people are just able to focus on one thing and stick with it for along period of time? What I've been discovering is that the more in truth I seem to be, the easier the words and thoughts seem to flow. They also seem to make sense to me however, I fear the truth in art and in blogging, in many ways because it is such a vulernable and scary place to be in. I want to share so many things through my art, but at times I am afraid of what the "truth in art" really means. I hope that as I continue to blog and create there will be a merging of the two and a sense of focus will awaken in me. I wait and hope to find a song in my soul.
I've wanted to post up some of my paintings that I've done over the past 3 years related to my Fantasy Collection. I have been adding paintings to the collection and I am finding that my style seems to change from textured to smooth and back to textured again. My subject matter and theme has seemd to change as well as style.
I thought I'd post my older paintings up a little at a time, meeting up to my most recent work.
