Art has always been a constant companion. Though I do not know how it first began, I cannot remember a time when art was not a part of my life. If I was not scribbling or doodling along the margins of a notebook or on a scrap of paper, I was getting lost in the colorful pages of art books or dreaming about future art projects.
Nowadays, instead of just doodling, I also enjoy painting. I love watercolors in particular, but sometimes wander off to play with collage or acrylics for their texture and depth. Writing and creating wearable pieces with beads and fabric also fuels my imagination and I enjoy spending time with them as well.
While these are all mostly solitary pursuits, it is nice to get together with friends and share our different art projects, talk about the process or exchange constructive ideas. I would like to recreate that here, like visiting a friend, relaxed, maybe pulling up a chair and just hanging out for a bit.
In the middle of the Pacific, coconut trees sway to the song of trade winds while an island Moon rises in the night sky. The sound of voices can be heard as if carried on the breeze, voices talking about art, inspiration and following a creative life.
