I've ALWAYS loved mixed media art, ALWAYS, even before I knew what mixed media was! I remember when I was young kid going to my godparent's house in Toronto and they had this really funky very large abstract work of art on the wall that just mesmerized me, I was drawn to it. If I recall I think it had pieces of random gears or machinery imbedded into plaster then it was painted with an abstract wash of color and I loved it. My godmother has sadly been gone for about 20 years now and I wonder if my godfather still has that piece of art, but I doubt it. And I don't even know if I'd still like it now, but it sure caught my eye many MANY years ago.
My journal is a place where I can relax and experiment and just play in whatever type of creative mood I am in. I can share if I want, but I don't have to. However I find my she art canvases to be a way to express who I am and what I want people to know about me...I WANT to display them and I WANT to express who I am. I have completed 4 girls, two are hanging at my desk at work, one is in my kitchen and one I ended up giving one to Kim at Pickle because she gushed over it so much I just knew in my heart I HAD to give it to her, maybe it was meant for her. So, just sayin'....if you want to see one up close and personal it may still be at the store unless she has whisked it away somewhere.
Enough deepness...this is my first she art girl and I used one of the phrases that Christy gave us in the class. I thought it was 'fitting' for my inaugural girl.
I still have a couple more, and if I find time, I'll blog them this week, shorter post I promise! No deep thoughts...hmmmm...I thought I've said I don't have deep thoughts but maybe I do.
