PARTS OF ME



Well, the stagnancy didn't last long, because I didn't let it. This was purely an impulse piece I did tonight. I was proud of myself because it only took two hours...I usually drag things out way longer than that, so in that respect I did something different. I am happy with everything about it, but believe or not, this started out in my mind to be a whimsical piece...ha! Everytime I try to lighten up it just doesn't happen...this happens. I am happy about the fact that it is not vintagy looking, and more art than collage, but I can't get a hang of that whimsy, and I am beginning to think I shouldn't try. At least the thought got me this far, so I accept this as progress. Does this happen to anyone else?
In my mind, I see this as deep and dark. How do you see it, do you see it that way? I would really like to know what you see.....It may help me accept what I am.
I always appreciate your visits, and I love your friendship and comments....always...thank you.

You should definitely work on impulse - this is magnificent!!!! You are going through some difficult times - so your soul may not feel so whimsical at the moment. I don't feel this as being dark - it is deep, yes, there is some playfulness here and there is mystery - which is as it should be. The soul is full of mystery.
It is absolutely awesome, Sharito!

Stregata said just what I was thinking about your collage; I would not call it dark either, but deep it is! It also is mysterious, but there are lots of bright colours in it!
I love it very much!!!

Dearest Sharon,
This is a fantastic art piece.
I love the deepness in it, but find not much dark--I find maybe some confusion-and sees the dark slowly drifting away, to give place to brightness, and joy.
It is gorgeus.
Love, Dorthe

This is awesome. Not dark, layers and a peak.
Great art!

Not dark at all. The very somber looking girl has two points of view that she is weighing her options on before she chooses her path.

Diane said...

Yes, the results are always better when you don't think about it. I love the layers of this piece--it looks like you've been working on this for a long time (and that's a good thing)--very haunting, and I LOVE it!!

Have a wonderful day my friend.
Big hugs,
Marie

hey sharon,congratulations on bead trends mag. i just saw the digital issue..your work looks wonderful.

SummersStudio said...

I don't see this as dark at all. My first thought is that it seems introspective. And that makes sense to me given all of the things that you have going on in your life. Impulse is good and I think you should just go with it. Whimsey will come when and if you feel it. I like the depth of this piece. And yes, this happens to me frequently. I set out to create something with a particular feel and it comes back not at all what I envisioned. It's part of the process and it's all good!

umelecky said...

This is a beautiful work of art Sharon! I believe your art should reflect what you feel and that's what makes it good.

I wouldn't call it dark...more thoughtful and serious and maybe a little sad. But just beautiful!

roc said...

Dear Sharon,
I do not see this piece as deep and dark, no, not at all. The first thought that came to my mind was: exploratory! Also, layered and even FUN! Playing and discovering, that is what I see when I look at this collage!! xoxoxoxo

Mary Newton Designs said...

Nope, not dark. Contemplative-is that a word?

Barbara Lewis said...

Sharon, These are WONDERFUL! Try not to think at all ... the best comes from intuition and a little internal voice guiding the way! Keep it up!

In the Light of the Moon said...

Sharon,I just posted on Collage and how I feel when when I see a piece such as yours...a bit light headed..and woozy!!I'm loving this,and I think its her eye that catches my mind..Whats she thinking?..something captured her eye and she is intrigued..perhaps she can see the light at the end of a long tunnel..or perhaps a sweet bird has taken flight..Whatever it is she is lost in its beauty.Not dark..no way..more like Awake!!
Big Hugs,Cat

Pretty Things said...

This is utterly amazing -- and I can't believe it only took two hours! I love what you did with her eyes.

thekathrynwheel said...

Gorgeous! I love this! Very striking indeed :-)
Happy new year to you x

Laura said...

Niiiice! I was so surprised when you described this piece as dark- To me, it represents the inside of an artists mind- colors, images, shapes all swirling around. I guess I think the eye looks introspective so it appears to me that we are getting a glimpse of what is going on in her head. But that's just my take. I just love it.

Astrid Maclean said...

Like most other people I also do not see this piece as dark, just beautiful, and yes, deep certainly. I see it as you discovering who you really are, peeling away the many layers. What a fantastic way to start a new year, you are on a roll and I hope you keep rolling, I love this. Often when we work fast we do our best work I think!Something else takes over, I'm sure your muse was guiding you:o)
Happy, happy new year to you!!

Cathy said...

sharon, i LOVE this piece! you are such an inspiration to me.
i hope you have a happy, healthy and artful new year!

~*~Patty S said...

here is how your art piece makes me feel...there are many layers waiting to be revealed and investigated...depth and color and heart all wrapped in one...a most beautiful piece...keep doing exactly what you did...I just posted about letting go...I am convinced it is a process

Diana said...

Sharon this piece is very introspective to me as someone else commented. It took my breath away when I first saw it. I think it is truly a piece of art typifying the space and time your creative spirit is in. Sometimes we can try too hard to make something happen instead of letting go and giving our creative spirit the permission and freedom to come out and play. Enjoy your creation, it is wonderful!
Diana

Pilar said...

beautiful pages! I wish you the very best for this new year! xoxoxo

Тётя Трот said...

Wow! This is stunning

Roben-Marie said...

Wow! What terrific work! I am so intrigued by all the layers. There is so much goodness here!

mairedodd said...

this piece is beautiful sharon - after being on leann's page i see what you feel... within... it is a word that is very true to you because the message emerges without even you thinking about it...

Michelle Remy said...

Oh Sharon! This is a fantastic journal page! It is so cool to see your journaling evolve...I wouldn't think about a page's meaning too much because that analytical process can stymie future pages. Just go with what flows out and keep moving forward! In the end, all your pages - dark, light, whimsical, serious - will lift you up and carry your creative soul onward! x0 - Michelle
