It has been a long time since I have posted anything. The reasons are many but the main one has been technology…my old computer could not keep pace with WordPress at all. Regardless, I have continued to make art and continued to enjoy its process whether good or bad. I have no idea as to whether I have posted this one under another title or not, but I like it and had great fun making it so here goes…I hope you enjoy it and I hope you have all been well. As always…keep making art, whatever your art may be.
I made this, and titled it, last weekend and wasn’t sure if I’d post it until I read a friend’s post this evening about seeing the crown jewels in London as a boy with his Mom or his Grandma, he couldn’t recall. The best part though was how happy these memories made him. I was inspired by his memories and his joy in sharing them and then I remembered my joy in creating this little artwork. My friend, by the way, has two blogs, one is called “frogs pad” and the other is called “the black crane”. Both are here on wordpress and my family and I have created many happy memories of our own reading his blog together. I hope you enjoy and keep making art.
Today, I am at Tate Modern in London, England to view the Paul Klee EY Exhibit. I have loved Paul Klee’s work since first viewing it at the Bergruuen Museum in Berlin in May 2011. Since that time my deep love and understanding of Klee’s work has grown and developed. So much so that when the Tate exhibit opened on October 16, 2013 (which was also my brithday) I took it a sign and resolved myself to the fact that I would have to go and see it in person. So, as you read this, I am in my “Klee Glee” settled in front of one of Klee’s works in London. When it comes to art, follow your heart and let it be your guide. I did!
Christmas is all about music and both of my kids are very into their music…as am I! This guitar was inspired by the musical enthusiasm of a friend as well as the musical enthusiasm of my children. I also saw a guitar something like this in a magazine at a music store!! Enjoy, tune in to your inner musician and keep making art!!
So, here I am again. I was listening to Hey Rosetta today, their song “Carry Me Home” hits home this year as I am not home…again, like I have been for about 20 years but what makes this year different is that last year…I was home and I actually went to see Hey Rosetta play and heard them sing that song. I have begun to realize though, that the year at home was not a loss, it was a gain. My children and I have even stronger connections than I could have hoped for. Enjoy, remember that being home is a gift you give yourself and, as always, keep making art!
