6 X 6 mixed media on paper
so this is a tree house. can't you tell? I was walking through the seward neighborhood with my sister and our dogs in late October (Minneapolis is just drop dead gorgeous in the fall...) and I noticed this tree house made out of scraps. I really wanted to re create that tree house and this is what I did. funny thing is I created it while the comcast repair person was working on the wireless system in my studio. he kept saying, "Do you have a minute?", "Do you have a minute?" when he needed me for something.
This was one of the pieces I shared with my art group last night (L7). Which, by the way, I adore. I made a commitment with them to start free associative writing around my photos because I want to extend them in similar ways (as I have here). I think it's also important to say that I had a very upsetting day at school today. when I came home there was a treat waiting for me: a check from a gallery. now, it wasn't the dollar amount that shifted my mood. what shifted my mood was the reminder that I am an artist and that 99% of the time, my experiences with art, in art, through art are beautiful and harmonious. I am truly grateful...
