oops! i sorta forgot i had a blog....

it has literally been months since i wrote my last post! i believe it was right off the fall gig of Art Is....i have been sooo busy, but mostly taking care of my new life and my kids and my dogs.trying to get some art in, writing up some  hopeful teaching gigs and realizing that after 22 years i thought i knew someone, but really did not....trying to let the hurt and pain go away and in it's place have peace and honesty. i have learned, you really should balance a check book, my friends and kids are the best, i really like snowmobiling,   i truly believe what goes around comes around ,i can find humor in just about everything and people at the most unexpected times have made me smile and think it is time to get on with this job of healing. i am sharing some bits of work i have been creating, mostly painting, actually all painting....globs and heaps of paint, scratching into the surface of with.....fingers, pencils and crayons....the thing about creating art is you are in the moment....these are some of my recent moments....




someone who's work i respect greatly asked me, if i thought my art would change, would it head in a new direction? i still love periwinkle,apple green and graphite pencils, images of childhood and quirky sayings, i may howver be scratching into that paint a little harder with more angst, but that is all good.
peace...

Great pieces Sue! Are you buried under white today? Nobody going anywhere for a while. Regarding the new life, remember how far the $5 copay goes!

Sherry said...

when your name popped up in my reader I was so surprised. love these new pieces - they're different from what I remember from way back when :)
I can so relate to not posting - it's hard to fit it in

Love that you are back. Sorry for the pain. But your art was featured on a perfect Brave Girl Daily Truth.
Can't wait to see more.

SMC said...

I saw your bird on the Daily Truths from the Brave Girls Club and that took me here. I like your work VERY much! Keep it up and Happy New Year!

I want to take a class. I LOVE ALL that you are doing!! I love the "Birdscapes". I normally live in California or Oregon on the coast, but right now I am living in the mountains in Panama. I would love to know how to make those 'plaster??' birds.

Maybe an art retreat in Boquete Panama? Long shot I know.

I got a divorce about 2-3 years ago. I know what you mean. regardless of which end you are on, it sucks.
