Y2 Art Resolutions is the second year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as a life’s philosophy.
Yes. Today is the 15th of December. At first blush, it would appear that I am rubbish at resolutions. I concede that 21 days of resolving to elevate 365 isn’t impressive. I could, of course, blow lots of smoke and inflate the importance of the 21 I’ve shared but smoking isn’t healthy (in any realm). I could parade a long list of excuses and distractions. (This year has been exceptional, in that regard.) Again, I will not. Because the truth is, I have probably made a healthy dent in the yearly percentage of creative acts/days–but I have not written about them. And so, though I’ve missed your comments and interactions, suffice it to say “it was just one of those years.”
In the interest of catching up , at least a bit, I have been working on some commission pieces. These decanters have been flow invoking and a bit imp-inspiring. This one is inspired by lilacs. Everything organically emerged and grew. I particularly like the chartreuse stems and pale aqua leaves. Among the predominantly lilac blossoms are pale pink and blue petals. I love the bit of whimsy and the tad of modern pattern. For your distraction, I present the Muchmore Studios “LaFox Lilac” decanter–part of the studio’s eco-arts and crafts. Like I said — a bit of whimsy.
