Exciting News! Beginning in mid-February I will have a fifteen minute segment on Radio 101.5 WHCP in Cambridge, Maryland every other week! the segment is called Kaleidoscope. I’ll be talking about different ways to see the world around you as well as answering questions I’m asked relating to my life as an artist. You’ll be able to listen online from wherever you are. More details will follow.
I will also be offering online courses very soon!
The Year of Influence continues …
Influencing artist: Jasper Johns
The Year of Influence is turning out to be a different experience from the one I had expected. I almost feel as if I have a different head on my shoulders, looking through the same eyes I’ve always used to view the world around me. “Allowing another artist to whisper in my ear” was my poetic attempt to explain my intent. Rather than imitate the style of each week’s artist, I wanted to determine the artist’s priorities and considerations when drawing or painting. I planned to use those priorities and some of the techniques the artist used as a filter to slightly alter the way I look at the world or how I view my intuitive images. That is exactly what I am doing AND actually imagining that the artist is whispering in my ear has proven to be a useful technique to expand my awareness. What I didn’t expect to happen is that when the week is up, the artists hang around to chat with one another, sometimes interrupting the one whose turn it is to whisper in my ear.
