Change is in the Air!

Sweet Repeats Fall Collection
"Sweet Retreat" .....I love the sound of that name for my
new studio, as it represents the part of me that uses art for solace and peace, it's become a way to retreat but blossom at the same time. That in and of itself, is Sweet.....Thank you Stacey "Art Snark" for suggesting the name! Please drop me a line to pick out your colors for your custom 6x6 Sweet HeARTS!!! Congrats! I really loved all the names picked out, it was hard to choose but I decided to go with the one that most picked as a winner and one that rang true to my love for this studio space :) happy day!

This week I've been scurrying away in the studio, working on a new collection for an upcoming show and trying to tie some loose ends on a few works in progress I had going. Next Saturday (October 17th) is the Holly Arts Festival, in Pinehurst, NC. It will be my second show this year, my second show ever. I feel better prepared for this one in some ways but not where I want to be considering I knew about this since April. It just seems that I have delved in so many projects this last few months that have been sooooo encompassing of my time that I haven't been able to prepare for some other things as well as I wanted to. All we can do is take one day at a time and do the best we can do each and every day. What more can one ask?

I don't typically work in holiday motifs when painting by I do love this fallish/Halloweeny look to this collection. So much so, I might just carry it forward in another grouping or so.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I'm ready now to settle in for some quiet time, some nesting, some bonding with my new abode, dig into some new projects and start fresh again. This time, for the right reasons and in the right direction.

Be patient...that's something I need to do as I try to do as much as I can in a very short time.

It's all about following a dream, your dream. My dream.

there is just something about the colors in this series. OMG, you did it this time...right on track for fall, but I love the "collage" feel to these too. I know I gushed on FB too, but just had to comment here too. I couldn't pick a favorite...or could I.

Luv luv luv the deep rich colors in this collection, Jodi. Yep, a bit different, but you "wear" it well. And, good for you on "in the right direction and for the right reasons". Bon Voyage!

And a big ol' congrats to Stacey, too!

Great fall pieces & Best wishes for your new show!

Woo Hoo lucky me :D Hard to dance around the room & type at the same time -LOL

If you don't mind, please create them as you wish - I'll be thrilled to own a piece of yours! I have a wall-o-art that is overflowing with talent (from Pam C, Nancy L & many many others) Your lively work will fit in perfectly

Heidi said...

I absolutely LOVE the colors you used on this collection! Wow, they are really fabulous. I love the paper ephemera you've included as well. These might be some of my favorite things you've done! Beautiful.

Heidi said...

Love the fall motifs, especially the leaves. Of course, it's my fave season too.

Loudlife said...

Oh, Jodi! I loooooooove this orangey look! And on top of that, I love what you did with it. These may be my favorites of yours! The feeling they evoke is really speaking to me. "Coming Home" and "One by One" are my favorites so far.

Oh I'm bummed. I won't be able to make it to Holly Arts. And now seeing these new pieces I see I'm going to be missing out on something good. BEAUTIFUL JODI!

Hi Jodi. It's been a while since I've visited - and oh my you have some really beautiful things here. I love your "connections," but even more I love your autumn themed and colored work. So fascinating to look at, really.
Hope you are enjoying your new home - it's going to be a wonderful holiday season for you and your son!
