April is National Poetry Month in the United States and Canada. It was started in 1996 in the US to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry. Sharing my love of poetry seemed a natural, so for the month of April I anonymously put poems on the large bathroom mirror at work. These are some of the poems I taped on the mirror.
The very last poem was left for me today, April 30th, by an unknown guerrilla poet. I absolutely love the fact someone took the time to do that! More poems next April? You bet!
After a couple of rejections from the SB Art Association, I thought I'd give it one more try. I talked myself into having hope that the Abstract Art Collective might be more open minded about defining "art". So, I brought three pieces to their live jury day in April.
From my brief experience, it seems that people who work in abstraction are more open minded. Instead of being branded with the label "craft" and sent on my way, I was instead welcomed and accepted as a member!
I've just finished two pieces to donate to the SEE Fundraiser. All the SEE pieces are done on 10 x 10 inch wooden studio panels, which worked out perfectly, that's such a good size for my stuff.
My creative process is currently being tempted by multiple sparkling visions swirling around. But, as soon as I try to grab one, it dissolves into mist. I have to remind myself to be patient. Those ideas are not ready yet. Their time will come.
