Sharing Your Journey Your Way

We have to share our journey our way. That's honest and there's no real way around it. You can try to be someone else to please them, but that's all about their experience. Share what you have seen and where you have been. Share where you are. Share you.

When I created this piece of art, I did it my way. The lamp isn't really blue, but I paint it blue anyway. The wall wasn't orange either, but I can. Big Belly Vase is my business, not yours. Close your eyes if you don't like what you see.

I might sound brusque toward you, but that's not my intention. I am speaking to the voice inside of me that tries to make me be someone else. I have to shut that voice down, and I can't be nice about it or it will take over. I hope you can do the same. Don't we all struggle to be who we are? What voices speak inside you? How do you struggle to share your journey?

Big Belly Vase,

Take Apart 2,
Age 45

I am in the throes of taking apart my old art: the art that doesn't please me in its entirety. I love pieces of these pieces though, so I start to use them. I make some new work that is not entirely new. I make something better from something not quite right. It is satisfying.

Past Work!

Old Junk

I’m gonna pull that Old Junk out of my head. I’m not going to give it a chance to play its old song of doubt, fear and sadness. Instead, I’m going to believe something new, write a new song and let that new tape play. Old tape out, new tape in!
