Sniff sniff sniff. That is my art brain when it is having a cold or crying from no inspiration. Then bam yesterday, I was about to take a nap and three things zipped through my attic (I have a higher room in my brain where I keep my daydreams, nightmares and desires). So freakin’ stuck on my fine line of abstract or realism…people/audience respond to the uncomplicated imaginations that look familiar in realism, but the BEST is when someone stops, looks at me, stops and looks down and says “you did this”?? “Yes indeed sir/miss” All by myself. Now I am crossing another line by adding realism into my abstract images to give more clues about what I am trying to express.
The animal kingdom is soooo broad that it was difficult to think keep it simple and rely on detailed illustrations. Kept it to my illustrations and crossing my fingers hoping they liking one of the three ideas. My piece is going to be in the live auction so I am a little rattled because I strive for the best most of the time.
