Memory and the Wisdom keeper

graphite- a conversation with questions asked, and answers offered.

I have been an artist of sorts from my first box of crayons working throughout my life in different forums which included ways of bringing art as a expansion of expression to the children and families I shared time with. That was an amazing part of my life and a constant learning journey. Just about five years ago I decided it would be the next phase of my life to finish work. This does not mean leaving process behind, but sharing the drivers seat with an outcome. I am choosing to  explore technique and content and see where that road  takes me, but obviously the joy is in the journey so the process still has to be a front and centered focus.

Three of the past years have been busy ones. I have been submitting work for juried shows, hanging in my hometown local gallery, in general getting work out there. In the process I felt as though I was moving away from my own authentic work to producing what I felt influenced to make, to match criteria. It wasn’t the path I felt I wanted to continue. When you feel lost or as though you may be on the wrong road, I find the best thing for me has always been to call a do over.

These are my next steps, the stepping away into a quieter life until I feel sure the path is leading where I really want to go. Writing about it, keeping track is a bit like map making, as we all know, many roads lead to any place you might want to be! The getting back again, may require a record, bread crumbs at least, and if they are scattered to the wind, just know laying them to me, is worth the time it takes.

Love the whole set up of the blog and I do like the photos at the start of comments! You are artistically multi-talented, by which I mean not only painting, but photography, writing, poetry. Inspirational!


    1. Thank you Susannah. I feel sure, if I painted everyday for the rest of my life, I would not run out of things that draw me. It is such an intricate, amazing world.


  3. I just have to let you know that whenever I see your blog come up in my email, it is the first one I read. You have the gift of writing, of drawing one in and having them walk with you on your journey. I hope to have many more walks with you. Hugs and blessings.
