Owl, Pendulums and Being Fickle

Owl
encaustic and mixed media on birch 12 x 12
I seem to be becoming kind of fickle.  My tastes are changing and I'm finding my attention waivering from one place to the next.  Mixed media, collage and whatever else I can get my hands on these days.  I'm going to chalk it up to spring and the concept of new in the air.  I believe art is like a big giant pendulum - we swing from one side to the other side before finding the balance in the middle.  I know the balance will come and for now - I'm on a really fun ride.
Happy Friday every one.  And... I'm still open for a few takers for my art project.  Don't be deceived by the count - there may be a few extra spots for those that are committed.

  1. I understand what you are talking about. Right now I'm hooked on the Ipad/P-53 and can't get enough of it. I love your pieces, it's very interesting with 4 eyes looking at us. Great job.

  9. Your owl is amazing. I am like you, always looking for the next thing...but maybe that is how we are and just accept it, that our interests are so wide...Just doing one thing could be boring too! Happy PPF - Irma

  12. Loving your latest piece of artwork Marji, such a fab owl. How dull art would be if we always painted the same thing in the same way, Happy PPF, Annette x

  13. sweet and well done owl, Marji. Seeking and trying different media is part of the process, of our art journey, just like in life. It is good to be a seeker.

  16. I guess it's good not to get stuck in one place, but I really am a huge fan of your encaustic works. Your owl is beautiful art work so enjoy the ride till the pendulum swings back to center.

  19. Hi Marji,

    I keep reminding myself that keeping an open mind of constant infinite resources is also relevant to creating work of a curious and captivating kind. You have done this with your gorgeous owl! I actually detest swinging, get terribly sick but swinging from art medium to art medium is really lots of fun, enjoy the ride!!!

  25. This is so true! I feel the same way but I try to focus or at least try not to get too thinly spread in my interests that I don't finish one thing haha! But I have to say.... every time I visit your gorgeous blog, I itch to get the wax colors out!

  28. I feel you - I am constantly flitting from one thing to another. I hope someday I will land on one thing and become a master of it, but, until then, flit flit flit. I love the textures in your owl! I just want to pet it. :D
