Hello there! What have you been up to?
Art seems to be pouring out of me and I can’t stop it! Nor do I want to! Working on the 100 faces project has really been very inspiring and I’m learning SO much!
I do love creating faces but it was nice this week to take a break from eyes, noses and mouths and work on a different piece for a dear friend…
Remember this one?
Well…it got a little makeover…
My friend had me add an Angel’s wing to it…a brilliant idea!
Then we had to have a little fun…
I was stunned to find that the wing fit her perfectly. So sweet!
And then she took it home and put it right back up over the mantel. :)
She loves it so much more now and I do too! I’m thinking I might have to do “Wing” series of works.
What have you been working on lately?
How’s life? Hope you are enjoying the changing of the seasons. I do so love Fall!
I’ve been taking the online course – “Studying under the Masters” with Jeanne Oliver and I’m eating up all the information and reveling in the feeling of artistic growth! Along the path of studying, my thoughts were brought back to an artist that I love but never truly researched before – Marie Laurencin.
She was a French painter (1883-1956) and lived in Paris for most of her life. She hung out with other powerful artists of the time including, Pablo Picasso, Jean Metzinger, Albert Gleizes, Robert Delaunay, Henri le Fauconnier and Francis Picabia. She was celebrated as one of the few female Cubist painters. Her style only emulates the elements of Cubism early on and quickly fades after World War 1.
Her style moves toward an ethereal look of soft colors, gentle curving shapes and doe eyed female figures. These resonate a beautiful feminine power and grace – a serenity and grounded energy that I find captivating. I had the pleasure of seeing her work at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris when I was there in 2012. I feel deeply in love with her work. What do you think?
So gorgeous right?
One of the most important things I have learned from this online course is to NEVER EVER stop learning about Art. It feeds my soul and is such a wellspring for inspiration and growth.
If you are in a rut, creatively, I encourage you to research a favorite artist, experiment with a medium you’ve never used before or sign up for an online Art course! Don’t give up on your creativity just because you’ve hit a wall. Find a rope and climb over it! Be open to your potential and trust your path.
