Remnant of my mother's mid-century lamp.
Palettes at a rural Oregon wood products company.
"green whirlie" put into a pattern.
So....2011. Just getting around to thinking about it.
What to do with it...or "make"of it, in terms of artistic pursuits?
One thing is for certain: in the absence of time, one must develop proactive patterns of behavior: positive, repetitive, orchestrated patterns of disciplined behavior that will provide structure and lend strength to a determined course of action. Hmm....sounds convincing. I think I just created a mantra for myself.
"I must develop positive, repetitive, orchestrated patterns of disciplined
behavior that will provide structure and lend strength and conviction
to my determined course of action."
And, of course, it helps to limit one's focus so as not to fall prey to "scattered-itis."
Speaking of patterns and structure, I highly recommend a visit to textile artist Sophie Truong's wonderful website and blog, Stitch and Tickle, where you will find gorgeous photos of her own work and also of an installation of translucent sculptures of recycled plastic tarps and sheeting made by artist Anna Hepler. So worth the visits!
Off to repeat my new mantra while I focus on creating! Hope you are finding time to create this weekend, too.
Thanks for stopping by...
