The Title Eludes Me…

Girl with Geese

NOT

Maybe it is due to the exuding energy of new creative ventures… but usually, the title for a new piece of art or in this case blog titles,  pop right up. One of my artist friends said in passing, “I never stay with the first idea because it’s the one that everyone thinks of” hmmm… that could be true.

For me, I love spontaneous! Starting a new “project” art, event, even cleaning out a closet… which I said I would never talk about, is often exhilarating. It’s that starting thing… big white canvas, planning an adventure, even creating a fabulous dinner, I LOVE it.

I have the weirdest (in a healthy fun way) thoughts. Usually the first thing that comes to mind when I have an inspired idea for art or writing, is either very strange or funny.  Sometimes, I crack myself up… thoughtfully. Most of the time I can control the circumstances of silliness. Occasionally not.

SONY DSCgirl in the blue dress! if you don’t stop laughing I will stop this bus (schoolbus) and you will be removed! luckily, I was not the girl in the blue dress… but my best friend was, and whatever I was talking about was very funny and the more I said, the harder she laughed. I would have walked home with her…of course. For some reason this event comes to mind when I think about fun and funny things and being silly and happy. I know exactly why this has been a significant personality trait throughout my life…hmm, another title to add to the list.

I am excited today. I LOVE the direction my mixed-media art with painted paper is taking. I am happy to have finally started this new blog :) So… out for a run this morning and I should just be listening to music and breathing, but I have titles. Titles for new blog posts, and titles for the 3-d girls that I was cutting and sanding and gessoing yesterday.
