All of you fabulous workshop students already know the joys of packing it all up and shlepping your stuff to a new venue to work. Today I had the privilege and joy of doing just that-- sans workshop! I got to paint in Sandy's fantastic studio (jeeeeaaalooouuusss) over looking the water with fabulous women that I just adore! Advice for the day; if you are feeling stuck or uninspired, especially if you normally work alone, paint with friends! We all know and love the energy of a workshop or class with cool people, so create your own! Thank you Heather for making it happen and Sandy for being the gracious host. And Judy, so great to paint and hang out with you too. Next one is at my house. All I can offer right now is pool side on the ping pong table. Haha But a new studio is in the works!
I'm continuing to travel this weekend with the perfect formula: supplies, intention, inspiration, a deadline and the best traveling companion. Stay tuned to see what happens. :D
I had such a great time teaching and sharing at the Ormond Art Museum this weekend. I am continuously amazed by the work that comes out during these weekends! Each artist's work comes out so differently and I see that as the greatest achievement. Each of us is on our own journey, bringing different experiences and passions to the table. I love that collage and pattern and color are as liberating for others as it is for me. And I am so grateful for the reciprocated positive energies!
We will definitely have a master class up there in Volusia County- probably sometime after the workshop in New Smyrna on April 11-12. The prerequisite will be taking one of my 2 day workshops and we will focus on the drawing and painting parts of this process. Let me know if you prefer 1 or 2 days. I will keep you posted about the where and when. Please keep emailing me or posting your new work on my art facebook page. I love to see what you are doing!
With much gratitude, Christine
Thank you Bennett Gallery!
From Blog post on Oct 13, 2011:
What a great word, dwell. Emily Dickinson wrote "I dwell in possibility." This is the mantra of an artist. The belief that if you can remain aware, any emotions, good or bad, can be channeled through a person and molded into an image, a song or a sentence that inspires. I had a roller coaster ride of emotions this week and I am so grateful to have been able to focus it and and release it onto these 4 panels of wood. I've said it a hundred times, "Any day in the studio is a great day". This is my therapy. This is for me. Esther Hicks-Abraham says that when we talk about creators, we are talking about the creating of your state of being. I hope to always linger in the idea that art in all its forms has the potential to fill me, to heal me, and to save me. I dwell in that possibility. Dwell
I am so honored to be the featured artist today on Mixed Media May!
