Reinvention

During the process of reinventing my ways of creating, I discovered fun again. Simply working from my heart rather than spending a lot of time researching color trends or focusing on impressionism because “it’s what sells,” has been so liberating. Making art should be freedom personified.

One of the reasons I love mixed-media is because it’s so forgiving. Anything and everything goes — I had forgotten that. Treating my supplies with a tentative preciousness. Keeping everything neat and sedate rather than just diving in, making mistakes and making an artistic mess, all the while learning and creating heartfelt pieces of art.

It’s a good thing mixed-media fiber art is not all about perfection. I’m the Jackson Pollock of stitching. But I like haphazard lines and raw edges. The handmade look carries with it an authenticity which I aspire to.

I haven’t posted for a while. Feels good to be writing again.

It’s the first day of Spring!
