I think of the slogan fabric of our lives. So what is it that always holds us together and warms us. What keeps us comfortable? For me it’s art and there’s nothing in the world quite like it! I love a whole lot at that. Art is my freedom of expression, muse and love for my imagination and curiosity.
Some of my pieces are mere sketches with ideas. Some are paintings that I have worked on for a long time. I hold on to these ideas like Linus holds onto his fabric…his blanket. The whole point is to create and share and to voice what needs to be heard BUT to do that you have to let go of the fabric. Let go of that big imaginary blanket of comfort that makes us feel safe. There’s nothing wrong with comfort. Guess there’s really two fabrics of our lives. The one that we need to hold on to and never let go. Then there’s the fabric that we need to let go of in order to grow.
The magic is where you can balance the two. As an artist you have to hold on to your fabric…your beautiful fabric be it a certain color or pattern even at a time when it’s dare I say it not in season. You also have to let go of the comfortable warmness you felt before because to create a masterpiece you have to put away that comfortable blanket and stand out in the cold sometimes…and that’s just it …if your blanket is thick enough you just create and you don’t even feel the cold.
Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible!
