Time And Art

Time and art, these are two concepts that should never be presented together.
I loose my time when I make art, but at the other hand, I don’t make art if I don’t have time!
Recently, I’ve been working late hours in the night. Colors have been dancing on my palette and shapes have been forming on my canvas.
It all starts with a black field, going into abstract work and figures start dancing in front of me!
Making art has been an exciting process and I can’t wait to share it with you!
So, put in your calendar.
November 24th I will have an open studio, along with Rheni Tauchid and her paintings on acrylic skins!
I will keep you posted for details later.
Please enjoy one of my latest creation – “Star Gazing” acrylic and charcoal on wood. It will be available together with many others in my open studio!

Where I Am Standing On…

…I have no idea! But I am still standing!
That’s it, life is just passing fast, I am just hoping it is because summer is ending and there is still a lot to be done.
My kids had grown, so much, physically and intellectually that I’ve been bombarded with all sort of questions: How do babies get inside mommy’s belly?! Do you have to take a needle to have a baby?! (this was my favorite!) Is there alligators in the lake at the cottage?! Can my best friend and I be brothers for real life?! Can weekdays be weekends so I can play wii?! And this is only a few of what I had to answer during the summer!
My kids mind seemed to be working on bundles and at the end of the night, my favorite part of the day, when we cuddle beside each other on bedtime and they both say: “Mommy, this was a great day, I love you!” That pays off anything.
In the middle of summer activities, play dates, new discoveries, trips, cottage time, I actually managed to have my art shown at the Women’s Festival in town, which for me was a BIG step. Not only I loved to see how people reacted to my paintings and photographs but  I watching life little coincidences unfold in front of me, was just enchanting. Hey, I even sold a few pieces!
However, I have to say that I could not have done it alone. Thank you to Judith for being with me the whole day, setting up and packing my stuff.
Thank you Mr. Sugar for taking care of our little ones and bringing me coffee when I most needed and specially, thank you all that came and enjoyed the sunny day with me.
So, moving on, I left the festival with a mind full of ideas and could not wait to get back into my studio and produce more art.
I am telling you, this is addictive! Get ready to close your eyes and dream with what you will be doing next. It is a non stop creation mode.
Well, school is almost here, lunch boxes are organized (sort off), back packs bought, drawers cleans and house tidy. I am just going to sit back for the next few days with my lingering thoughts, my sketch book and let the beauty of the end of the summer enter our lives with the breezy smell of Fall.

When you have a chance, come and visit my website, there is a lot of new art posted! See you soon!

When Things Go On a Different Way…

I know it is all I talk about, but I’ve been working very  hard for the art show on Sunday.
I will be surrounded by amazing artist women and really would like to cause a good impression…
Working with paint is like making bread, very forgiving. It doesn’t matter how big is your mistake, it always ends up in a pleasant surprise.
A few days ago I had poured way too much blue paint on my palette, I couldn’t get it back in the tube so decided to spread on to a canvas, as the paint went on, I saw the blue night sky showing and a need for more colors, when backed up, my garden was there, waiting for me to sit under the moon and watch nature blooming.
This is what I got.

If you want to have a closer look, come and visit me at the Women’s Art Festival in Kingston, this Sunday from 10am to 5pm. I will be at the booth 169.

The Outcome!

I did! I did!
I put myself out there, I waited for critics, comments and looks.
I open my heart for any experience that a personal art show would bring and promised not to take too personally.
The outcome?! I sold a few pieces and learnt a lot!
There were laughs, wows and silence.
I tried not to translate every sigh and the day passed very fast.
I totally loved the experience and  I want to do it more often.
I think everyone, should put him/herself out there and listen.
It is a life lesson.
Even the stories that came up when the audience trying to analize my work, were a piece of art.
Oh boy, Freud would have loved this!
I will be updating my personal website with new pictures soon and you will be able to see all the art work there!
Thanks for supporting me!
