|Space for Ascent Acrylic on canvas|
In my studio yesterday, this idea hit me and would not let go.
I told myself - you have been working very hard. Humn..... HARD - that was a key that opened up a chain of other thoughts and questions. Why was this? What made things so hard? and........ What if things were LIGHT? I want to work LIGHT.
This is my new mantra - Working Light which will help me stay on track with these prompts. How can I be lighter? Less dense? Move through tough times with more ease?
Looking for the light is something I do everyday. Light is a precious commodity that we all have access to but often take for granted.
I love the sky both day and night, the stars, clouds, colors and effects that I celebrate everyday. Light is elevating and glorious.
This translates into my studio as I create paintings that have a overarching sense of light. I make my sculptures as light as I can by choosing materials that weigh as little as possible and still do the job.
