Sometimes I find myself in a creative lull. Yep. Been there done that, right peeps? Other times it's like the ideas come so fast you get in total freak out create mode. Right? And then there are the moments that you hear the angels singing. You know what I am talking about you just are flat out afraid to speak it!!!! Well, not this chick. Man, this is my favorite idea to date. Really.
Ok, I love painting. Love the campers, nests, bikes, etc.... But this idea with the flower cabochons. I just LOVE IT. I took Stephanie's soldering metal class. I did. And I made the nests like she said, and I added the brass components like she said, but still.....how do you find your own voice when there is a choir out there already singing the song with you? I really don't want to be a part of a choir when it comes to creating an authentic art voice. Of course with mediums you kind of have to. It's not like I am a scientist that can invent a new form of paint or wax. It is what it is. But the ideas I take to the canvas or to the soldering brick, well honestly I try very hard to make them authentic.
It's hard though. There are so many artists out there making stuff. Lots of stuff. And sometimes ideas are so floaty that they get into other people's heads too which makes them seem less special. It's like ideas are universal....like we are all speaking the same arty language at the same time. So when I hear the angels singing, well it makes me grin from ear to ear. And this is how I feel about the Flower Garden Series below. I can not wait to make more and develop this line of jewelry further. The best part is that I am finally using all those flower cabochons I've been hoarding for a rainy day. I can not get enough of them. Nope. And now that I have the idea for them....well. It's a garden growing sorta day in the Horne House!!
So, have you heard the angels singing lately? I sure would like to know the ideas you are busting at the seams to share!!
