Lately I’m drawn to creating portraits of women and girls with animal features protected by predatory birds, snakes. And I’ve become increasingly inspired by a Hawk that sits perched high in a tree outside my Studio window! If all goes according to plan. these paintings will be part of my forthcoming book titled “the Secret Lives of Dolls”. A book which will hopefully be ready for Comic-con (if the planets align correctly!).
This year is chugging along already and I’ve been selling and exhibiting at the Pop Gallery in Santa Fe! Sharla the owner/director is terrific! Things are going well at The Wonderful World Art Gallery in Culver City too. Miss Mindy and my work is still there, and we’ll be rotating some new work in as we make it!
For now I’m just trying to stay inspired and creative and not to force the work. I often struggle with feeling like an “art making factory” at times, so one of my goals is to “find the love” in the work and find new ways to encourage the creative process, ways to nudge it along without sending it into shock! I’ll keep you posted with how it goes and if I come across any major emotional break throughs!
Best wishes to you in all your creative endeavors for 2008!
