My head is still spinning with the interesting artist’s I was lucky enough to meet at the Cape Coral Festival of the Arts almost two weeks ago. I thought I would share a couple more of them with you here at Creative Chicks Cafe.
My life as a passionate artist is an adventure.
The adventure has already taken me to many places.
I am not alone because of the support of my patrons.
Patrons have taken the time to recognize the final images from my brush, and my unquenchable spirit of exploration.
I take courage from the recognition: I take more journeys and I have more dreams.
An artist, who has the courage to step into a small boat when the water is rough, fears being capsized.
So far I have not capsized and I have found the light over and over and over.
Think of me as a map maker, an explorer who goes on journeys and comes back and fills out the portions of the map that have never before been detailed.
I am a modern day visionary who completes the map and records the moments of “ah ha”. If sometimes you look at my artwork and are challenged you are feeling much of what I also feel. The truth is that while I paint I also hear a very fast paced music that only plays inside my soul. Sometimes the music marginalizes me that I cannot complete the image. When the spirit of the image absorbs the music then I can complete the painting.
My paintings feel like they take forever.
