when janis says jump...(or 'art' and my studio begins to take shape)

When Janis says jump, I of course say, 'not a prob Janis...how high?'
Remember this mess...you can read about it here.
The very lovely and exceedingly clever (not the least because she had the good sense to marry an Aussie) Janis, said that I should frame it.
So I did. It has even more 'mess' now, although I do believe it's slightly crooked. Oh well. Never mind.
It's now in my reclaimed studio inspiring me (a little) and reminding me that anything can be made into 'art' (*snort*) and that I really need to get cracking again on that Cert IV after two weekends away.
The studio is slowly (very slowly) turning into what it's meant to be. I'll keep you posted...as they say in the classics :)
Head over here for much creativity.

  2. I think that's the key to art, you have to be open to chance and think ouside the square. This is a lovely example of that. I always have to remind myself to let go a little and let artwork go wherever it needs to go.
    This looks great Kerry, as does your space - much neater than mine!

  5. It is art, and it's interesting, striking, and looks good. All I could possibly say against it is that it's not a Kitchenaid.

  6. Looks fantastic, wondered how you made the pattern. You were very tidy in your original painting and it made great "art"

  9. Very nice. And more importantly you can talk about the 'process'when people comment on the artwork.

  14. To quote a wise lady (Faux Fuchia) I luff it 11/10. I am also seriously coveting that wonderful red lamp.
    I took your post about cutting back rather seriously and have been minimizing my blog time. I had no idea how much time I had been spending in blogland. It has really opened my eyes. It has been amazing to see the amount I things I have been able to achieve around home. So thanks for the virtual kick up the butt. I am enjoying my short blogland visits and taken heaps of pressure off myself. Thanks Kerry

  23. Ha, ha! Kerry I'm glad you "jumped" when I suggested your frame your accidental piece of art. I really do love it, and I love the vignette of your studio. Well done!
