When my paintings went off for exhibition at Breathe there was a huge vacuum created in my home and studio, and you know how nature feels about that, well me too – we abhor it!
It didn’t long for me to tire of all those empty nails and hooks everywhere, and soon enough they all were hung with elaborate vintage frames teasing me with all the endless possibilities of my next new project. Before I knew it the summer had flown by busy as I was with commissions and exhibitions. Now the paintings have returned and displaced those empty frames which are themselves a sort of vacuum and they too long to be filled.
Oh, did I mention that I acquired a casket? I’ll be filling that too, not in a morbid way but with a florilegia flourish.
Vintage frames–endless possibilities–your art life is so full, so good, so inspired.
A tisket a casket a golden-yellow basket-casket. Soon, you say, to be filled with FLORILEGIA FLORISHES, you’ve got me wondering on wonderful fillings. I await.
Your “found” objects are many. Your “finds” are eclectic and entertaining. I have been so interested since your early days of eBay and other sales-auctions site purchases. Some practical, some adornment, mostly artistic. I especially refer to your choice of the vintage floral slides you were very cleverly inspired to place at the very center -well, off-center, in your truly inspired FLORILEGIA SERIES. And so it continues, I eagerly await the casket’s artful usage.
