Musings



At varioius time I consider myself an art quilter, a fiber artist, a pastelist, an acrylic abstract painter and a mixed media assemblage artist. Lots of mediums in which I try to voice what moves me, what inspires me, what speaks to me. I work to manipulate mediums so they allow me to express my fascination with disintegration, beauty out of ruin and the continuum of life. Of course the age old question rears it head from time to time...I get what I'm striving for but does the message appeal to others? In other words, are my artistic expressions successful?


Lately I have been creating pod type vessels that dance around imagery evocative of other worlds, ancient ruins, secrets and memory keepers. An online art friend who I have known (and actually met) for many years now hit the nail right on the head when she said my latest clay creations reminded her of Myst and Riven. I had no idea what Myst and Riven were until I did a bit of google researching. Take a look and see if you agree. Some of these images are so beautiful and mysterious they have already provided me with much inspiration. Game On!

Hi Denise, I think your art is 'successful' if YOU like it and it makes YOU happy. Also I really like your gelatin prints. They are gorgeous!

Oh my gosh...it's been a long time since I thought about Myst! I bought the game when it first came out and never could get far...

Thanks for stopping by my blog..and for leaving your comments. I'm sorry you won't be submitting a recipe this month....perhaps some other month? I bet your images would be great!!
