"Gloria II"

In order to get my "art mojo"  back for creating a specific kind of art rather than 20 different styles, I am taking the wise advise of 2 special people: Georgia O'keefe and KC Willis who told me about Georgia's stint with charcoal drawings.

 Georgia decided in order to get out of the rut she was in, (predictably all artists go through this!), she would draw only with charcoal till she could draw no more and certainly she would find a direction!  Well, she found her direction alright and what a direction it was.  Her paintings of the Santa Fe landscapes and her famous flowers flowed out of this exercise in discipline.

So, that is what I am doing. I am concentrating on one type of art with one type of style till I can do no more of it and see what happens!

Wish me luck, I'll need it!

    Good advice and I wish you the best...right now I am on a jewelry kick because that's what sells but want to do some art from the heart after Christmas...I am so excited to try the encaustic wax.
    I had my first workshop of the season last Thursday evening and we had a lot of fun.
    Take care
