Can anyone guess what my favorite color is??
Every time I go to paint, I reach form my blues more than anything else it seems. I just can't get away from them. Maybe one day when I'm long gone and nothing more than a mere memory, the historians will look back and try to evaluate my 'Blue period'. What does it all mean? What was the source of inspiration to use so much blue in her art?? Frankly, it's as simple as a pure love of something. In this case though, there's a special purpose behind the art and color choice as I made these for childhood friend I reconnected with through Facebook of all places. (What a lovely time sucker of websites that is!!)
I love seeing all the people though that I haven't seen for many many years! It's an honor that my friend has asked me to create something special for her to place in her home. As an artist, you truly do create for yourself first and foremost but to have someone actually seek you out to create something that is for them especially is a great honor and in a lot of ways scary as all get out!! Custom orders always give me the cold sweats. I guess it's just the fact that you are trying to match your art to someone else's vision. Sometimes you can make it happen, sometimes the two don't connect in the way either thought it would. Anyway, I'm hoping my friend likes these, they are really gorgeous in person if I do say so myself :)
So what gives you that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you create? Or, what gives you anxiety when you are creating something? How do you get over it??
Love hearing your comments and feedback!
