It me along time to realize that I am artist. I thought art was about copying a photograph or scene, which it can be of course. I have taken a few art classes, but found them limiting of my expression. I need to find my own way. So when I saw abstract art I was so happy it wasn't about coloring in the lines after all. I call my art intuitive. It is not really abstract. I work from a word or a thought or a person. I close my eyes and pick my colors. I clear my mind and I let what come forth come. This to me is intuitive art work. I enjoy working with art in this way.
I have worked with acrylics, oils and color pencil. I am game to try any medium. I paralytically like the ease of water mixable oils. I have worked with clay which I would love to get more involved with, but unfortunately it hard for I don't own a kiln. I have beaded, crotchet, macrame, and weaved. In all that work I made most of my own patterns and designs. I would love to set up a full art studio in our barn. So I could work on anything my whim desired.
I love taking photographs I finally was able to get a semi-professional camera a year ago. I'm so glad I did. I love it. Like my artwork I try to incorporate a different point of view. I just zoom and shoot and see what comes out. Sometimes the accidental photo comes out the best. A good example of that is the Horse and Carriage on PEI. A very happy accident and one of my personal favorite.
