OK, I can't contain it any longer - I am an ART HERO! ;0)
A week or so ago, I ran across a video from Kesha Bruce, an artist and mentor living both in France and the USA. I heard about Kesha from one of my dearest friends and Michele, and decided if I said it loud enough inside and outside of my head! just maybe, fingers crossed, one day I might actually believe it!!! As Keesha states ...Sometimes ya gotta make a little noise.....
Apart from it being an amazingly fun video, (link) it came at a time when I've really been trying to dig deep and discover my style.
This train of thought all started with a question that Seth Apter (The Altered Page) asked in his latest, soon to be released "Pulse". (more about that later) I just couldn't answer that. But it did set in motion much internal debate. Thanks Seth for provoking me to PEEK IN-side.
What followed was a solid twenty hours of exploring creatively as well as an on-going set of goals to slowly chip away at. And even though, I have miles and years to go, these two collages are a new beginning for me. I feel like they are `` my style.`` I am an Art Hero.....I am I am Sam ...I AM!!
It feels good to be vulnerable ...uh ...I ....think! But, a comment or two from my readers would help right about now? Did my hard work pay off? Or do I need to find another tree to bark up and at? Either way, I will plod along....and happily because, after all, it's all in the playing!
