Stoking the Fire

Some times working on one thing can get boring. That’s why series were invented. Working in a series also helps you fine tune things. I’ve done several pieces that I would for what I call my “Quilted Collage” series. Most of these started with cutting up and/or piecing together older work. This one is called “Stoke the Fire Within from Without”. Although our lives as artists are often filled with solitary time in the studio, we must participate in life to feed our fire. For many of us Mother Nature is a major muse. So go out side and breathe the air, smell the lilacs, feel the grass between you toes. When you return to the studio you will be refreshed and your work will be more alive.
