The Whispering of Lambent Feathers

My own kind of Oz

A Work in Progress

Secrets Buried In Time

I call this “Secrets Buried In Time,” and it’s a 6×8 canvas panel I started some months ago but haven’t yet finished. I ‘m not quite sure what I want to do with this piece next, but I feel I need to bring out more of the collaged and stamped objects. Right now, it feels too soft focus to me. The objects don’t pop. I also want to incorporate more ideas into the theme of what I already have – if that makes any sense – to clarify what the work is saying.

My artwork is such an intuitive process that I find it difficult sometimes to verbalize and communicate about a piece I’m working on, or have finished. I wonder if any other artists feel the same way, or if it’s just me. I think my lack of formal training hinders me in this respect, as I lack the formal art-speak of technique.

I make what I feel – and that’s usually quite a lot! I’ve been blessed with a huge creative imagination that has, at times (and mostly when I was younger) gotten me into all sorts of trouble. But in retrospect, that only made more fodder for the creative flame that burns within.

  1. Try bringing out one element at a time and that should tell you how to bring out the rest of the elements you want. Go slow and with a very light touch. If you reinforce the elements already in your composition you’ll find out there are enough,you don’t need any more. It looks beautiful.
