Heads heads everywhere.

So, what's on my work table.  Well, layers of projects in various stages of completion or not.  My last post was talking about the Thinking Cap series.  That is still moving forward all be it slowly.  I am taking my time with that one.  It is slowly evolving into a very personal exploration into the power of words and how they shape our lives in subtle ways.  Kind of like labels or powerful spells that hit our psyches.  So, I am taking my time in exploring that idea.  At first I thought I would do pieces playing with the idea of four letter words. But,, quickly found myself looking at my choices of the words I had intended on using.  Starting thinking about why I chose particular words.  That morphed into words that I realized had some impact on my life whether it was positive or negative.  Anyway that is where that series is at this point in my art drama.  But, above is a shot of some heads I am working on for a variety of ideas and uses.  This whole summer and maybe beyond is about personal exploration and experimenting.  I figure I need to recharge my batteries and not worry about selling.  That is what my day job is for anyway, to make ends meet.  The art sales have always been a bonus.  Yes, my dream is to become a self supporting artist some day.  But, I also want to be authentic in my work.  So, I figure this time of self exploration and experimentation will benefit me in the long run.  I hope to discover some cool things along the way I can pass on in a class or two.  So, who knows.what may come out of all this personal indulgence.  I hope you will walk along with me as I share some of my personal creative journey.  Until next time my awesome friends out there.  Keep smiling it makes life a little better.  It really does.
