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.
So, it’s been awhile but I have been making art, working and clearing snow. Hope you enjoy the finished product and for any who are interested; I had ‘the” most incredible time in London and saw the Klee exhibit at Tate Modern three days in a row as well as loads of other fabulous art! I highly recommend a visit to Tate Modern if you can manage it. It is well worth the visit. 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!
I have a wonderful and life long friend named Stella who lives an ocean away from me. I miss her dearly and think of her often. I also love the work of Frank Stella and somehow each time I see his work with its vibrant energy, I think of my friend Stella and the friendship that has lasted and will continue to last a lifetime. To all of my friends here on wordpress and around this big wide world of ours, you mean so much to me. Thank you for hanging on for these two years I’ve been blogging and as always, keep making art…whatever your art may be!!
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!
