Staying Fresh

Coming from a theatre background, I learned a lot about a variety of artistic endeavors. Theatre people have to be a "jack-of-all-trades". Prop making, costume design and construction, set design and construction, makeup design and application are just a few of the artistic challenges that give theatre professionals a rounded, all inclusive training bananza. This has been fundamental in my post retirement career. I bounce around enjoying all kinds of art from jewelry making (my first love) to mixed media, flower arranging and about anything you can imagine. Somehow I always come back to jewelry and mixed media. Between focusing on these two genres here are just a few pictures of what I do to clean my artistic palette.

My advice is step out of your comfort zone! Play with others by taking classes or just try something new and different. The growth that you will achieve will inspire fresh new ideas that you will apply to your first and forever art genre. Come on and make the leap! I dare you!
