Sometimes, that little bit of space can help my work in the long run. I've been there before but the distance was much, much longer... like two years- a little too long. But even then something magical happened when I was finally back in the studio. Like an incredible explosion of bottled creativity that was finally released... that had been brewing, seasoning and was finally ripe for the taking.
It may be too early to tell but, this recent short break may have been just long enough to create a slight shift in my work. Or maybe it is time anyway... I let my little birdies take flight. I am not sure how long it will last but they did not want to be in my latest paintings. I love them dearly and they worked their way into my paintings so strongly and unexpectedly in a way I never could have planned. I welcomed them and felt them calling to be in each piece. Who knows if they will be back...? Here are my newest pieces...
