Morning Coffee and Watercolor Rain

This morning Nathan and I are sitting at Mead’s Corner having coffee (this is where my work is up this month).  We happen to be positioned in a sunny room right in front of this piece, “Watercolor Rain”, which is a mixed media collage on board.  It suites my mood this morning, so I share it here.  There’s something about the way she stands, turned away, head down.  I experience the piece as a  melancholy calm, with hints of passion and memory, nostalgia and wistful remembering,  Some of my pieces hit me this way.  So much of my experience and way of experiencing are worked out in the making, each artifact a part of an intricate tapestry of being.  So I let it ruminate,  and allow myself to feel.

  1. I was going to ask if you’d post about your exhibition. What were the response, did you have lots of interest, hopefully sales? Is it a solo exhibition? How many works are up etc.

    1. Thanks for asking. This is a solo show at a local coffee shop known for exhibiting work. Honestly, I really prefer these types of exhibitions spaces in that they allow for a casual, leisurely way of taking in artwork. I have around 30 pieces up and have heard really good responses so far , though I have made only one sale. It’s up for the month and I have an artist reception and talk on the 23rd so that may help. Usually when I show at this type of venue I sell anywhere between 8-10 pieces. I guess we’ll see:) Thanks again for asking. Have you shown in these types of venues?

      1. Late reply, we do not always have internet connection where I live. The past few weeks it has been particularly poor. Good luck with the 23rd. I haven’t shown any of my work for a while and am haphazardly trying to get a body of work together to do so. Inspiration is there – I live in paradise – but the will to work has gone on leave. I’ve been to eclectic and need to focus. I wish you well with sales.

  2. I love the way you write about your work, how you respond to it, reconnecting to what it was that inspired you to create it, as something both apart and a part of you. “So much of my experience and way of experiencing are worked out in the making, each artifact a part of an intricate tapestry of being. So I let it ruminate, and allow myself to feel.” Beautiful.
