One of my goals as an artist is to make my work "accessible" for EVERYONE!!! So thank you all so much for all your interest. Inspiration is what I love most about being an artist. For me, inspiration is the juice of life!!! Sometimes before creating new works I enjoy looking back at my own repertoire of work and styles and pulling out from my creative tool box. However, despite what most people think being an artist is not just about fun and creativity. It's not just a calling. Unfortunately, many artists like myself must also address all the interest and demand for our work as a business. In fact, recently I was meeting with an Art Director and Agent and we just smiled at how many times we saw The Mona Lisa reproduced so many items at the bookshop cafe where we met for our business meeting. I am being strongly encouraged to do the same with my own art. So that's one of the reasons I also created these recent reproductions of my own women from Paris & The Cabaret.
Paris & The Cabaret
So this past week I have been having fun combining the different aspects of these women in my Paris & The Cabaret series for all of you in my online community to enjoy in different forms as Art posters, shirts, or to enjoy with your morning cup of coffee. I loved creating these works of art inspired by My Life and Time in Paris. So I hope you ENJOY these creative new designs I've created for you. On the left I particularly loved the "humor" of combining the face of my "Can Can Espanola with the ruffled dress of Elsa. For a humorous effect, in the middle I placed Elsa’s face wearing the tiny dress of my Femme Trapeze. This painting was inspired by performers I met during my time in Paris. On the far right Femme Trapeze is also wearing the dress of the Can Can Espanola. Now that I am so inspired by these designs, who knows what will come next... So stay tuned... Until next time, thanks again for all your interest. I look forward to hearing from all of you!
