More and more corporations, hospitals, professional offices and others have discovered the benefit of having original art in their space. It speaks volumes. It says that their organization is original, high end, the best.
The more business(s) that have displayed my work, the more work comes my way.
Abstract work is especially popular because it is non-political, does not insult any religious views or ethnicity. Large pieces are the most impactful. Small pieces seem to get lost in a space and frankly do not make the statement they are hoping for. Thinking of updating your space? Think abstract. Think large.
You haven’t heard from me in awhile….because everyone else is sucking my time…and soul. Like you I have the best laid plans for the day or week but then my time begins to get sucked up by things and people (most of them I love to death).
My husband has been out of state for the week and I had sooooo been looking forward to time alone so I could paint, work on a project I am creating, clean the studio, eat ice-cream for dinner, take a long fall walk in the woods but NOOOOOOOOO. Little by little people who depend upon me needed my help and I cannot say no to those I love. I had a 99 yr old cousin (Betty) who is alone and scared of death – I go and see her everyday. One of my daughters is a single mother and her youngest had no school today so needed me to have him over night and until she got off work today. Someone rear ended my car so it is in the shop and that is a pain in the ass…insurance claims, estimates, car rentals.
I yearn for my studio. Uninterrupted creative time…no clocks, no obligations…just paint and listen to jazz. Currently I am working on a new project of painting canvas panels to hang from carved wooden rods. Tomorrow I promise myself studio time and will post new photos soon.
Does this happen to you? What is sucking your time?
Stevie Wonder: Born Stevland Hardaway Judkins in Saginaw, Michigan, United States, to Calvin Judkins and Lula Mae Hardaway. Due to being born six weeks premature, Stevie Wonder was born with a condition called retinopathy of prematurity, which made him blind. Stevie Wonder, even with this disability, made his landmark to be a pioneer and innovator in the music industry.
Listening to Stevie Wonder while painting inspired these two works incorporating rhythm, percussion and his soulful, funky melodies. Stevie’s life is colorful, tragic and inspirational all at the same time. Look at these and find “Livin for the City” and “Superstition”.
