the beginning of freshyfresh
hi! here's the idea. freshyfresh is a gathering of inspiration. things that excite some part of your mind. visual things, song lyrics, ideas, books, soft things, blue things, funny things...you know, cool stuff. stuff we run across and react to. stuff we might savor even more if it was shared. Oh yeah, I really like quirky stuff too. and funny stuff. and the poetic. and lately... pipe-cleaners.
it's just a start, we will see what happens. Oh, and I see it as playful.
I am a visual artist. I work in mixed media, which for me is a combination of collage, painting , drawing, altered photographs, found objects and the written word. I have tons of stuff, collections of all sorts. over 10,000 photographs (late 1800's mostly) balls of twine, books, found journals, leaves. part of my process is organizing chaos. I believe in play, exploration and freedom in your work. I also think it's okay to suck at stuff, especially while you are learning. as I do at guitar. and singing. and oil painting.
