for now this is the best i can do....pictures on the floor. and i call myself an artist...good lord. what can i say i no longer live in paradise (vermont). i no longer live in a beautiful home as a caretaker. i'm in an industrial building in huntsville, texas which serves as a place to eat/sleep and work on art. bad lighting and on and on. i just wanted to see all my pieces together, background be damned.
i think i need a small break from these. i pushed the envelope and went into a new direction, which by the way, didn't work out but tweaked my brain just enough that right now i can't go back to these nor do i want to go forward. cease and desist. are these for sale? yes. i think i will sell a few as diptychs and triptychs. you can put them on the wall you can put them on a table, you can put things on them. you could use them as meditation blocks....soon i should get them on my website or etsy.
puzzle stuff. clocks. they have been whispering to me and become louder as lately i've gotten feedback from new eyes that my puzzle work intrigues and pleases people, and more interest in my rr clocks means i should consider closing in on finishing my limited edition of 100. being at #88 means i'm closer to that goal; i havent wanted to rush through and finish them because i'm in transition with my life and art and would hope that that plays out in how the last dozen look.
more changes...etsy is changing. the whole treasury thing and front page thing...disappearing as we know it. i would write about that on my etsy blog but we all know that blog is dusty and full of cobwebs. no one visits that blog and i'm alright with that. that too might be changing. i've been invited to join a juried etsy team that is being created. if you haven't looked at etsy lately go to it. on the front page their categories have become more diverse and the art? the art...it is becoming IMPRESSIVE. i've been meeting some amazing artists on etsy lately, their work supersedes most 'gallery' work. in fact they are real gallery artists. it's exciting the possibilities. all this because of a new CEO and new vision.
what else. the phoenix commotion. i've not been there much. the floor work kind of did my body in, its been too cold to go back kneeling on floors putting in bottle cap flooring and besides, other people need to work on it too. i'm mostly concentrating on my own art ~ marketing myself and exploring ways to exhibit and subsist. the clock is ticking...our lease is up before i know it and all i can think about is how to make it so i can keep working on art, derive income and not have to move into a studio apartment and climb the walls. paralyzing sometimes but recent feedback from people has shaken me back to life and i know i can do this if i just keep moving forward.
