I am still in the middle of a rather large mess moving my studio. Creative time has been nothing. I love to blog, so during my remodeling I am having so much fun discovering new artist. When you start searching the blogs time has a way of disappearing! Before you know its been a couple hours. I know you all know what I am talking about. For me after visiting so many inspirational blogs I just want to start creating myself.
I purchased a new book yesterday. "Book of Inspiration" by Jo Packham and Jenny Doh. Its like a hardback verstion of my favorite "Where Women Create". One of the first artist featured was Danita. "Danita is a mixed media artist whose colorful art dolls, paintings, and jewelry are capturing the imagination of fans across the globe." Nature, Frida Kahlo, Hot Baths, Childrens Books, Paper Dolls and Paintings from the Master are what inspire here. I loved her favorite quote, "Art is the only way to run away without leaving home...by Twyla Thorp" I have been struggling with the idea I am working in too many mediums. I was inspired to see that Danita paints, makes dolls, jewelry, etc. But they all have a very distinct style that ties it all together and defnes her art. Its given me alot to think about.
