PART TWO…Perspective

PERSPECTIVE IS by a dictionary definition

a technique of depicting volumes and spatial relationships on a flat surface.

a picture employing this technique, especially one in which t is prominent: an architect’s perspective of a house.

a visible scene, especially one extending to a distance;vista: a perspective on the main axis of an estate.

the state of existing in space before the eye: The   all right, but the building’s composition is a failure in perspective.

1. one’s own relationship to one’s life (existence)  and how they live in space i.e. in the world around them.

In ART  it is  impossible to paint anything,  draw to photograph, dance, act, write or feel anything without PERSPECTIVE.

ART is perspective.  Perspective is ART.

Every time I realize this AGAIN I get excited.

Every time I “rediscover” my passion, it’s like falling in love all over again

I am full of possibilities.  I am more than I was a second ago. I am a standing body of pure energy.

I am

in perspective.  I have perspective. I know where I want to take the next turn on my path of living a “meaningful” life.

As I was saying, I was sitting in my studio at dawn working on this little simple yet complicated watercolor.  My sister plopped down bedside me and said “that looks cool but your missing something”.

I looked at the picture again.

I am a self taught photographer and mixed media artist with a degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts in classical theatre performance. Stage was my first love and brought me into the world art while photography is what made me want to stay. I am married to superman, and am the mother of three little super-ducks. I studied creative writing at the Univeristy of Tn and classical drama at the NC School of the Arts, and a Masters in Education with concentration of inclusion and curriculum. I've liived in NYC and LA for the past decade and moved back to TN for some home cooking and back yard fun . I spend most of my days getting little ones through life and playing in my studio. I sell my work through different venues and am really happy where I find myself these days. I love to drink a bottle of wine (with my hubby) coupled with extra cheddar blast goldfish! Having kids has changed my life, the arts has shaped my life, and my soulmate continues everyday to walk through my life beside me. What else could a country city girl like me need.
