Tomorrow's Prayer

I’ve been working on this one a little at a time, as time has been whizzing past me at an unusually fast pace! I learned this week that I’ll be exhibiting at the Melrose Arts Festival at Memorial Hall, downtown Melrose, MA on April 30 – May 1, leaving very little time to put it all together.  But since I do have a ready inventory, it’s more a matter of getting organized than anything else, no small feat for one who’s also been extraordinarily disorganized lately.

Jane Dunnewold’s Creative Strength Training class is over now but I’m still in the middle of a huge organizing effort that has to be put on hold now until after the Festival while I prepare inventories, price, package and all that sort of thing. I do think that administrative work eats up more time than creating!  Grrr!  I don’t like that part but I suppose most artists don’t and most non-artists wouldn’t believe how much time is involved in either aspect of the making process.

Last week I attended a Wen Redmond class in Manchester that turned me on to making fabric postcards to sell at the Festival – that’s been fun.  Here’s a few of them.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. I know too well what you mean by all the admin work that goes with creating. A lot of times that can be a bear. All the best at festival, Janis. Hope you sell lots of stuff.
