January & February

OK, so Laurie inspired me to go out into the FREEZING cold this AM & photograph these!

I finished January & February because Karen from Indie Arts came over the other day to interview me for her DVD magazine. I really wanted to plug our little group & have something to show her. As it turned out, I talked about our group, but not as much as I wanted to & I didn't mention any of your names. I had an incredibly difficult time remembering my OWN name & I was afraid that I would leave someone out, so I said nothing! I'm so sorry about that, I need to ask her if we can have some kind of link to this blog at least, since the issue will be coming out in July & that would be a perfect time to get people excited about our show.
That's if she even uses the footage, it was a terrifying experience for me & I pretty much froze once she got the camera out. She says that she can edit it to make me look "brilliant", I guess I trust her, even though I really can't imagine how anyone could possibly make anything work out of that interview! I was a little bit nervous, but I had no idea that I would freeze up & go completely blank! She was really wonderful to work with though, she has the patience of a saint & once the interview was over, we had the BEST time running around town & trying on hats in the freezing cold! It made it all worth it in the end.

Anyway, this image keeps coming up for me, of a single female figure holding circles or balls, with circles all around her, so I decided to milk it & work with only that image for this project, but incorporating the different themes. I'm going to call my body of work "the 8 faces of joy" since the theme of joy is something that I want to explore more in depth.
I'm also working with this image/figure in my other group, only I'm using clay & carving the figure into it.

Wow! I am impressed...January and February in one fell swoop! Both are equally wonderful in totally different ways. Have to say I love the fragment of the clock, very inventive...and your Red piece just sings! (so who is the guy in the ball! hehe)
Will post my March theme next time!
Gotta run...Laurie

These are very interesting and beautifully colorful. I like the little face over the clock.

I am almost finished with mine. Will post it in a couple of days.

Nice to hear about the interview. I"m being good and trying not to call you!

I just spent some minutes reading your great interview at marlymor. You had me laughing out loud more than once! So honest and funny. I cannot wait to meet you in person. And kudos to you on getting these 2 pieces completed so quickly. I too thought the clock fragment was very inventive. Wonderful work.
