Many Art Forms

July 23, 2010

Art takes many wonderful forms from the beautiful handmade items from paper...
To assemblage....

To soldering and jewelry making...

To fabric art...
Each uses my hands, eyes, heart and imagination that God has graciously given me. I love to feel all the different textures and to really work each element I add to my artwork with my hands. To feel the softness of vintage lace, to feel the slick textures of beautiful paper, to feel the hardness of solder and metals. It all is creative therapy for my soul.
Lately I am enjoying another art form more... taking and editing pictures. Stepping behind a camera and using angles and lighting to tell a story. Then anxiously waiting to get them to my computer where I add and adjust colors and add textures to achieve the look I going for. I have started a photo and quote blog, Rise-N-Shine, that is for this new art form that I am truly enjoying... Come on over and visit sometime.
What art forms do you love? I would sure love to see them.

Beautiful! Love your new blog too. Wishing I had more time to explore all that I love to do...altered books, sewing...but I always carve out time for writing and blogging has given me a new interest in photos, although I have no idea really what I'm doing!
