"Conversation with Holy Sisters, Series of 6" - mixed media on yupo, each 6" x 6".
Yesterday was an abstract extravaganza! The day began with a two hour mini-workshop taught by south Florida artist Lois Perdue (check her out here). This was just enough to jump start my creative flow, and the remainder of the day was spent in my studio creating this series. I am obsessed! The number of layers in these pieces is daunting! But once in flow, it just happens organically. Truly mesmerizing.
The title of this series is inspired by a spirit card in a gorgeous deck I picked up several months ago. The card symbolizes the importance of kindred spirits, supportive tribes and new connections. Recently, I've had some incredibly inspiring and sweet-spirited people flow into my life, and the card made me teary with gratitude. With encouraging and supportive people around, there is no mountain that seems to high to conquer. There is strength in our connections.
This week I will head up to Charlotte for a couple of fun-filled workshops, and to reconnect with an art tribe of unparalleled caliber. Though I go to teach and take care of art business, I return from these trips inspired and re-invigorated by these wild creatives. The rewards of connection are boundless and continue long afterward. I am so grateful. :)
