"Sweet Marta" - mixed media on reclaimed wood. 18" x 7.5" x 1". Ready to hang. Available on Artfinder.
Another sweet face emerged from the pile of wood in my studio this week. This one inspired by a lady with the biggest heart I know, whose life's motto is "love", and she lives it every day. Thank you, dear Marta, for being a sweet presence on the planet.
It's been a week of inner turmoil and redefining self, as I continue to explore the question of "what place stacked my bones?" which seems to remain the central theme of my days. The answers are becoming clearer with each round of questioning.
I'm participating in "Stories of Home" this month at World & Eye, creating pieces which will carry my stories and show them to the world. My very own story, the one I've lived for nearly 55 years, changed this week. Figuring out how to translate it into art is both challenging and therapeutic. And the universe, with its uncanny sense of timing, presented this art project at exactly the right time.
More to come as I plummet down the rabbit hole. In the meantime, I'll stick with these sage words: Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn. Then, always be a unicorn. Wisdom from whimsy.
