I know that some people say to be an artist you must have sold some of your work. I am not sure if I could call myself an artist. I tinker with mixed media projects, and make beautiful lighted wine bottles. All these creations come from my heart and soul. When I do a project I feel it, it seems to come from deep within me. I can visualize the colors and the theme. I read once, I think it was Rice Freeman –Zachary who said “ that you need to just express yourself and not over think your project”. I have tried to follow that advice and it seems to work most of the time for me. When I first started to create I would keep adding and making changes and when I was finished I never really liked it anymore. Now I seem to see it, do it and leave it alone. I look at the very first art journal I did and see the simplicity of each page. Now I look at the most recent art journal I finished and I see the beauty I have been able to find in the colors and textures I use. It makes me feel good about myself and I hope that other who see it and get that same over all good feeling too. Thanks for stopping by….
