My Unusual Truth



This was the small little mixed media piece I did in my journal of the red pears (just in case you're a non-fruit person like non-Sweet Farmer :) who had never seen a red pear) that preceded this strange piece I showed you in the earlier post. Only those with great imaginations could see how I got from these pears to those Egon faces. I regretted that I did this piece in my journal after I spent way too much time on it to be tucked away in my journal library in days to come but I never would have attempted the Egon piece without it- and I really like that little canvas. I really like this too but I've seen a million of this type of thing and I like the unusual I must admit. I want my art to reflect my unusual truth and my passion and energy - and to do that I have to step out of even my not-so-comfort zones and let my imagination play. I tell you it's spooking Sweet Farmer a little bit because he's more comfortable with the familiar. You should have seen him when I talked him into staying at some bed and breakfasts' instead of nice motels when we took our last trip. He got very nervous. But then after I got him there and into the experience, he loved it. Things must grow on him. Like a fungus. I know the fact that he loves me means he enjoys a little unpredictability now and then - or .........I'm his favorite fungus.

I really like the semi-opaque thing you have going on over the magazine pages .... it sort of invites the Ergon faces. The Madison Ave. thing is just lurking behind those beautiful pears.

I have to chuckle about the fungus thing - maybe you're one of those truffles in France that are worth more than gold :)

I agree with Kimmie - I'm loving seeing the textures of print through the painting. You take the traditional still life to a new place, and my mouth is watering for your yummy looking pears :) They are beautiful.

I can really relate to how you and your husband interact - I know I *spook* my husband, too, and take him way outside his comfort zone again and again, but once there, he never seems to regret it! They chose us for a reason, and we them. Our safe harbor to return to, right? :)

Those pears looks juicy and ripe for the pickin'! I love the contrast between them and the mixed media background. They compliment each other beautifully!

I'm with Kimmie too... here's to truffles :)

Great blog and very pretty collage.

You know, I think it's inherit that people are uncomfortable with change or as you say the unusual. But it's good for us all and I'm sure your good for hubby.

Wow - the pears are nice, but the Egon painting (previous post) is more creative, and I LOVE that those faces were inspired by the pears. The one on the right is VERY Schiele - could see that immediately, even without the hint in your title. I can feel the fun you had with that one.
