About consistency... I have mentioned before how not good at it I am, I am all over the place in my art, I can't seem to stick to one thing,one style. Am I normal.. I don't know? I see so many artists that can stick to something that really brands them like...Kelly Rae...
No, not me...I can get inspired by a jar of molding paste or a scrap of paper just the same and create something totally different from one painting to the next just because of the medium, even my family always exclaim... That's different! Does that mean I can never be branded...will people see me as wishy washy?
I seem to change my art so often a.. from more realistic faces ...to very whimsical or even cartoonish..., I hope that that isn't a contributing factor in how successful I am at appealing to potential buyers but I really can't help it, I want my art to be fun and if I can't feel it then I can't create it, even if I can't sell it! That's why I keep creating these silly little wood blocks(picture at top of blog) that don't even sell! but I love them and I have come to one conclusion...I create art to display paper! I am consistent about that!LOL!
Yes.. I am consistent in the fact that I am totally infatuated with paper and sometimes I just want to display paper in my art, sometimes I think it is just too pretty to cover up with paint, sometimes I even just want to mount the whole sheet of paper on a mat and frame and stare at it. I get lost in the art store looking at paper and now I have accumulated so much I really don't think I can use it in a lifetime, but I can't part with it either... sometimes I think I can't even use the paper in fear that I'll use it up and never find it again??? even though I only use a little of it and I usually have three or more sheets of the same... Am I becoming a paper Hoarder??? OH no!... I think I need help!
