"Scotties & Snowman"
With holidays approaching and time evaporating, I am going to post three designs for Christmas, this one and two more. At the end of the week I am off on a holiday trip to visit with family and will not be posting again until 2007. Wow...two weeks I will be away from my easel. That has to be a record. I am already feeling withdrawal pangs.
I wonder if, when people look at my work as a whole, they wonder if I am schizophrenic. There are so many various media, subjects, and styles here. "Who is she really," I can hear you ask. I lament this at times. I notice the artists with reputations and followings have a "look." One look. One style. Usually one category, i.e. still life, or landscape, or portraiture.
I can explain myself. Trying to be all things to all people might come close to the answer. Using what was available at the moment might explain it. A journey through life and times might define it. From knitting, to quilting, to calligraphy, to watercolor, to gouache, to acrylics, to oils.... from illustration, to publishing, to commissions, to fine art....you name it. I would love to hear what people think of this string of art on the blog. And should I land in one place? One media, one category, one style? What do you say? What is your favorite?
2007 is coming. Where am I going?
