About

This page has the same information as my first post, only this does not include the video from the first post.

I’m so excited to start this blog:  a chronicle and showcase of my creations and what they mean to me before, during and after completion.  Everything from polymer clay to art journaling and whatever else falls into my world.

I’m going to share not only techniques that I find and try but my own personal growth as I explore these arts.  I have no formal training as an artist, nor do I have an inate ability that I’ve been cultivating all these (40 or so) years.  I’ve rarely sat down and drawn nor have I been sculpting.  These are truly the hands of an amateur. 

So then why is there a sudden need to create?  I don’t know.  Perhaps it’s what happens at this age?  Perhaps it’s what my spirit yearns for:  that unbridled right-side thinking exploration.   Letting go of the paint- in-the-lines technology and setting free the child within, learning from its abandon.  Beautiful.  What do I consider paint-in-the-lines technology?  Simple:  anything that doesn’t let the right side of the brain go wild because of it’s programing.  You fill in what you believe.

If you’d like to leave a comment on anything that I do, please feel free.  However, be polite and kind.  You wouldn’t be cruel to a child in your comments (at least I hope you wouldn’t) and it still hurts (however slightly or intensely) to hear or read unkind words as an adult.
