One of my most cherished things to do in this world is to appreciate everything art. I always think that it's a privilege to be able to see and experience the beautiful creations of other artists. An artist with well-honed talent is a gift like no other, no matter the medium, I am so humbled by the talent I saw this past weekend. I can only hope that one day, I can create equally as exquisite artworks. I believe that creativity in using new mediums, experimenting and thinking out of the box are the characteristics of a true artist, those are the things I appreciate about art because that's what I find exciting about evolving art. For a small spattering of a few of my pieces, take a look at my gallery at CharisOnArt. Who knows, perhaps in the future I can be a visiting artist and showcase some home-grown Canadian art. I know I will be sourcing out artists from all my travels for my new project.
September has been a great month to visit Sacramento with all of the events that they have going on. The last two weekends has been the SacOpenStudios extravaganza, that let's you peek into the studios of the artist community, and it's a wonder to see the spaces that they have created to showcase their works. As a designer and in love with all things artistic, I couldn't help but appreciate some of these spaces, it showcased the art, in the beauty of their homes and outdoor spaces, many of which were like art all on their own.
I endeavour to say that my artistic bug has been revived and it's time to start creating again. In fact, Rhonda Egan is giving me art classes today in her particular technique of painting. I think I'm going to get my butt moving on the pottery front as well, and my jewelry design. I'm literally SOOOOOOOO inspired. The sun helps, this California sun is like food for my soul.
I spent a fair amount of time with these gals, enjoying the banter and the enthusiasm, only in a way that artists can exude that zest for life and all things beautiful. They pegged me as an artist the minute I walked on to the driveway, my flowered shoes by BLOWFISH, my flower purse from Chapters (much to the chagrin of all the Americans that want it) and my Rifle and Paper Co. phone case, and my self-designed pendant I had custom made several years ago.
This yard display made me want to just stay for the afternoon and have a few cocktails or a glass of wine with whoever may come along. It seriously was so inviting, it truly was an art gallery outdoors, each and every corner uncovered a new exciting experience. Sheila Jacobs, David Peterson and Carol Wittich did a remarkable job and I would love to see more of their creations in the future.
