Liminal Space Art Blog
"With dawn of the new year on the horizon, I resolved to exert my will on the world." -Holly Black
This blog is all about encouraging you and me to carve, for ourselves, a safe place: a place that allows us to experience the simple pleasures of the present moment. It’s true. We must wait. We also must deal with the anxieties of yesterday and tomorrow. However, “Right Now” can be mine and yours if we take time to explore through creative process. What do you make, or what will you make? Read this blog as an encouragement to seek a creative expression that can transform your present moment. Let it make you consider that everything happens in the “In-Between.”
Be a time traveler with me. With the sweep of a brush and a stroke of color, time can be explored, understood, and momentarily nailed down for examination. While others might hurry forward to “What’s Next,” rush from the past, and fight the present moment, art makers like us can travel more peacefully. Try “Coming and Going Right Now” with ease others might not enjoy. It’s all possible through our creative process. Read this blog, and then join me in making art on a journey from yesterday, into today, and through tomorrow.
It’s about two weeks till closing. My parent’s house is ready to go. I have pictures and videos of every nook and cranny. Now, I paint it all. At first, I was beside myself about the house becoming someone else’s. I felt like I was losing and old friend forever. Recently, I’ve thought, “I have a way to keep this old friend with me.” I can be between “What Was” and “What’s Next” through my paintings.
What can you do with your “Right Now?” Is there a way you can create your way to a better place? You don’t have to be stuck with that feeling of apprehension that others are carrying with them right now. Creating can be your escape. Do something that gets you thinking about what you can do. You can create a new “Right Now” with the choice to create something new.
