I was recently invited to become a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society.  To become a signature member you must have had 3 works of art accepted into their National Exhibitions in which many are by invitation only.  Rolling Stones was one of the works submitted for jury.  I'm honored to now be a signature member of 15 national watercolor societies.

Artist's Muses

Featured image:  Moving Current

Sometimes artists have muses. I am no exception. Muses are often their source of inspiration. Muses give the artist a sense of passion about something. My muses are words and the concepts they conjure up for me. Words never cease to inspire me which is why I call myself a conceptual artist and why I write a blog and about beautiful moments in the day.

 

Why is it that some artists experiment more than others?

When we ask the question "why," it assumes there is an answer, one answer. When we ask the question such as "how," it assumes there can be many answers, and it allows us to decide which works the best for this particular situation. Artists who don’t ask the "how" questions, have a limited way of thinking about creating something. They have a limited palette. For them, all trees are green. They have a limited style, such as believing that all trees look like a “real” tree. Change is hard for them and they aren’t very patient with those who think differently than they do. Artists who ask the "how" questions realize that there are many possibilities, glorious experimentations and explorations. Their work will be a reflection of their authentic selves and not someone else’s self.
