Okay... so my last post is about moving in the next couple days to Oregon and we DID actually make it here. Huzzah! And it's been an interesting and very busy 6 months since we got here. Life seems to just be getting busier... but I'm in the process of seeing what I can do about that. Busy with a purpose is good, but just to fill up time is not and I have been doing far too little art, lately.
I'm still without a proper art desk, but I've finally started making use of my easel, canvas, and acryllics. So that's good! I'll get some new pics posted here shortly with the new work.
I've also created a Facebook page for my art in case anyone happens to be interested. I'll probably be a bit more active over there... but we'll see. The page is: www.facebook.com/ABChapin --- Artist Becky Chapin. The play on the letters with 'ABC' is also a reference to me getting back to basics. I'm trying to unlearn a lot of what I picked up in art school. Some of what they had to teach me was helpful... and much of it was counter to my own creative process. So, my art right now reflects a bit of that. It's looser, it takes more risks, and well... it's fun.
Art for Art's sake is the goal. If folks happen to like it and perchance even Want some, then that can happen. The start is just Art for itself (and myself), though.
If you're still watching me despite my extended radio silence... Hello again! And thank you kindly.
