Welcome to My Creation Station

Mixed Media Photo Collages

Folk Art Meets Abstract Expressionism

 

Some of my artistic inspiration comes from the Artist Mark Rothko coupled with the world of Alice in Wonderland.  Of course as a novice painter I’m still finding my style as well as the technique most suitable for me.

Artworks in Progress

 

Here are two collages that I’m working on at the moment.  These might be more abstract surrealist paintings than collages but I will still incorporate some picture/photo elements into each.

Right now they are unfinished but I’m not in any hurry.  It is just a pleasure and a great deal of fun to work on them.  Not really work at all but a creative and enjoyable activity that is relaxing and fun.  Very therapeutic.

Allows plenty of room to experiment and just try different painting hacks.  Makes me happy to have something in the pipeline.  Another way to express my creativity by combining two hobbies that I Love; photography and collages.

DreamScape Kaleidoscope Cymbals

This one is 98% finished.  I might add a few more elements.  If something else is needed the artwork will tell me.

Seaside Menagerie of Hot Mess Seascapes

 

This is what I’m doing on this cold, rainy, snowy freezing day while I’m on vacation. As you can see my efforts have not reached the level of Mr. Darrell Crow. I’ve been listening to Mr. Crow’s videos for just a little while so I decided to attempt a waterfall. Mine looks like something out of an abstract avant garde surrealist expressionist nightmare!

My Splash is more like a KerPlunk! My waterfall will never be mistaken for Niagara Falls! 😀😁😂🤣😃😄😅😆😉😎🤓🤔  I shall not add the rocks as mine would look like the Loch Ness monster arising from the depths! LOL!!

Plus I do not have a Fan brush but my room-mate has generously granted me use of his brushes so I tried spreading on the bristles on one of the wider brushes. My Palette is an old paper plate. Talk about improvising! I do have my handy dandy spray bottle.

However sparkles and glitter cover a multitude of errors!

Mr. Crow has Painting Series on both Acrylics and Oils. I have Oil paints but they take way too long to dry. I prefer Acrylics. I will keep working on this painting however I don’t want to use up all my canvasses as I need to save some for when Stephen arrives for his 57th Birthday Celebration in May.  I’m sure Stephen has got to be better at this than poor sister! Ha! Ha!

Anyway feel free to laugh at mine and enjoy the expertise and country humor of Mr. Darrell Crow.

Back to the Drawing Board. Literally!

My Mixed Media Photo Collage Masterpiece


Purchased an Easel Stand for my Artwork submission to the Union Art Show.

This is how I will display my Artwork. The name of this piece is Broadway Junction en Lacquer.

 

 

I’m in the process of working on another Mixed Media Photo Collage piece which I’ve named Glitter Glutch and Yes Glutch is a word.

Sneak Preview of Glitter Glutch

Not so much the Drip method with this one but rather a Swirl and Twirl Method

This artwork is still a work in progress.  Currently Unfinished

Happy New Year!!

TRIGGER WARNING! RED ALERT!

 

Yes I’m back. After a much-needed break during which time I gave myself the opportunity to reflect. My blog had taken off in a wrong direction. Basically I was caught up. Lots of frustration. Too many obligations and responsibilities. Trying to juggle this concept of balance and harmony neither of which I achieved. Therefore it was time to let go.
When you fly too close to the Sun like Icarus you burn or in these modern times burn out.  A Fucked Up Life = A Fucked Up Blog.  I’m not Wonder Woman. The older I get the more I’m willing to admit defeat.  More people should pay attention to the expression Beating Your Head against a brick wall.  Well I have a bloody head.

Every so often you need to say, “Fuck it All.’ Like in Gone Girl I’m tired of being the Amazing Amy. Sometimes you must walk away from certain aspects of your life. My body does not handle stress well.  Finally around the time my laptop died I was having terrible headaches every day. Collapse. Nobody there to help me or pick me up.  As always I was and still am on my own.  My life had become a fucking circus of putting on acts of well-being.  Now I begin to tell the truth of a life filled with failures and flaws.  No perfection. No promises. No happy endings.  We deserve or think we deserve happiness, peace, joy and prosperity but life does not owe you anything. In this life you get many unexpected “gifts.”

If God/Universe gave out report cards my would be filled with F’s.  This is the truth I live with every day. Again I don’t sugarcoat anything. One can never go back. It’s like saying you’re still a Virgin after the hymen has been broken or a baby has passed through your womb. No returns.

I Am Not a Performance. I am Truth.

I don’t like to be typecast or put into a stereotype. That’s why I don’t take to so-called Life Coaches, Life Hacks, Therapists or sellers of happiness snake oils.  I don’t do Affirmations or Memes. They are totally lost on me. You don’t need to be a happy person to have Happy Times. I’ve had many Happy Times and will continue to do so. Happiness itself is situational. Just like anyway else who is brave enough to admit it I Love certain aspects of my being, my personality, my looks but their are other secret areas that come to plague me at night. That allow me no sleep.  Those are my demons and I welcome they. My demons are my closet companions. Reliable. Always there. Sometimes they even save me for where would they be without me. We are bound to each with an umbilical cord that stretches but never severed. To know me is to see a stubborn mass of contradictions. I’m a paradox wrapped inside an enigma.

It is what it is. I follow my own mind and make my own decisions. I admit to being high strung, nervous, lacking patience and mercurial. Anxiety attacks are my normal.

Temperamental and sometimes ill tempered. Blunt. Straight. No Chaser. I’m not the Replacement Bitch. I AM THE BITCH. B.I.T.C.H. Being in Total Control of Herself.

Basically I wanted to trash this blog totally but I realized I needed the archives being that I lost many of my MS Word documents.  Also I needed a break from this writing blog to focus on my Photography Blog Roaming Urban Gypsy.  However after increased demand and support from my Subscribers I will once again serve up offerings of poetry, prose and opinion.  On My Own Terms.

Bits and pieces of my Life were in the Pawn Shop. Set up life a Museum dedicated to my past. Slowly once located I went back whenever possible to redeem and rescue pieces of my past so I could reassemble it into the future. Remade and Renewed through my own efforts or at times lack of efforts.

When one world dies another is born. And most don’t care unless it affects them directly.

I’m the Pegasus Unicorn in the Room.

It’s a Cold Broken Hallelujah
