Welcome to Angels and Faeries Week! I am celebrating the countdown to the grand opening of Angels In My Studio 2013 by sharing some of my favorite winged, spirited, and energetic artwork. Angels In My Studio 2013 is a 5 month online class that goes to that space where art and mystery, creativity and imagination meet. As part of the art course, each week you will be invited to explore angelic imagery through art and guided meditations.
Featuring My Spirit Dolls
One of my favorite ways to find inspiration is within my own art. Often I will do a doodle, sketch, drawing, or painting and some element will jump out at me. That then inspires exploration of the element. I might take that into a poem, a new drawing, a sculpture, or song.
The doll above is made of cardboard, tissue paper, and mixed media. She is in-process. There are a few more elements to be added but I am letting them simmer. She originally came out of a drawing I was doing after a conversation that I had with my friend Kakali about near death experience. I love that she is looking within. When I hold her in my hand, she inspires me to look within myself.
This is a poem that bloomed from looking within.
I absolutely love how one work of art has inspired another which inspired another. Perfect!
