creative spaces

My art show is next week, so this week my creative space is filled with all sorts of different things: touch-ups to paintings, framing, greeting cards, art prints, glossing ceramic art tiles (4x4 in size), and filling jewelry stock of necklaces and earrings (scrabble tile size).  whew!  It's been busy around here but so worth it! Hope to see you at the show! :)

blast from the past

When I was 22 years old, I moved from California to Boston by riding a greyhound bus.  I gave away all my belongings (my music, my books, my art) because I was only taking 3 bags with me.  As a result, I have none of the art I created during those earlier years.  Luckily, one of my college girlfriends has kept one of the paintings I gave her and a few days ago she took a photo.  Blast from the past!

Human Kokopelli Dancer on Wood

This is a mixed media painting on wood...
14 x7 inches

Once I finished her, she reminded me of a kokopelli, so thats what I named her. :)

 
Ko-ko-pel-li (kô kô pel´ lê)
n. {der. Hopi “kokopilau” (koko = wood, pilau = hump)} the humpbacked Flute Player, mythical Hopi symbol of fertility, replenishment, music, dance, and mischief.
