Journal covers, box lids, giant puzzle pieces and, of course, canvas, all fair game when it comes to mixing up the media. I have felt myself growing and stretching, almost on a cellular level, as an artist and it's exhilarating and feels a little frantic at the same time. Frantic because I don't have the hours to produce the ideas that surge through my brain, and exhilarating because, well that should be obvious.
I was just visiting Nicole over on Beadwright and wow, I admire her ability to post nearly every day. Especially since she has lupus, an autoimmune nightmare that, like mine, steals her precious time and energy and dumps them into some toxic, useless wasteland. But she doesn't let that stop her from saying hello; I feel like I need to have loads of new work to post but I suppose that isn't the point. The reason I know that is because I have met SO many wonderful, incredible artists who commiserate, support and come back to visit.
Bloggers like (Bluebeard and) Elizabeth at the Altered Book Lover, who posted to let me know she was going to feature my little space on hers. She likes my art and said she finds my blog inspiring - that's the magic word.
My main mission in this lifetime is to appreciate the depth and beauty in others, to connect in a meaningful way that sparks a smile, memory or sense of kindred spirit. Now that is what blogging is really about! May your day be blessed.
