After going through a year of building, I have a greater understanding of how light interacts with space and how the scale of art changes the feel of the house. To be uplifting, art placement should be balanced and exact. Less is more; minimalism is best. This experience opened up a whole new understanding of the steps needed to build a house, then making it a home. It profoundly deepened my commitment to art.
“there was nothing to do but wait. it is always like this for naturalists, and for poets–the long hours of travel and preparation, and then the longer hours of waiting. all for that one electric, pulse-revving vision when the universe suddenly declares itself.” -diane ackerman, the moon by whale light
2016 I will:
- Spend more time with old friends and new ones,
- Experiment in the studio with new painting techniques
- Create new ArtDoors blending inspirations with text,
- Compose a poem for each painting.
Explore new places
- Discover Amsterdam in Spring,
- Cycle through tulip fields with mom,
- Visit the great art of Dutch Masters,
- Explore a space museum in Washington DC,
- Create new memories of Christmas in Germany,
- Travel to South Africa, Cape Town
- Learn more about the places where my art is collected,
- Plan for new adventures….
Change of attitude
- Everyday I change just a little,
- Simply surrendering to the law of nature.
- Inspire others by creating fearlessly,
- Dust off old concepts and simply letting go,
- A sense of renewal and deeper acceptance of what IS
I look forward to sharing my experiences with you this year.
