Blue Shoes, Foxes and Studio Time




I Will Take Them in Blue
encaustic mixed media on birch 8x10
Its October - wow.  I signed up to be the artist for the October Artwalk in Edmonds, WA.  My artwork is hanging in the Coldwell Banker Bain office on 5th St, for the entire month.  Last year, in April was my very first showing of my work publically and it was in this very same spot.  The show is much smaller this year but as I reflect back, its amazing to me how far I have come in such a relatively short time.  My artwork keeps changing and getting better as I find my way and hone my style. 
Encaustic is a very fickle medium but I enjoy it so.  Just when I think I've got it - I don't.  But I am a firm believer in showing up every day in the studio or at least in some form even if life gets in the way of true studio time.  Some days - its a walk outside and just taking in color, texture and line - seeing how light plays and shadows are created.  I let that information center itself in my mind for future reference.  Its as good as true studio creative time and just as important. 
Happy Friday everyone!!  And many many thanks to you that visit here and fuel my inspiration.

  5. I love the juxtaposition of the wildness of the fox and the sophistication of the pumps. In my mind it reflects what women may encounter in their professional lives. Congratulations on your art exhibit!

  21. Congrats on your show Marji. I love this piece-the wonderfully surreal idea of the Fox and the shoes and how the blue stands out while the fix almost blends into the background colours-absolutely gorgeous.
