I have been absent too long once again. The school year has gotten off to a good start and though I am exhausted already, I have not been idle. Yes, my post are not happening and I do, once again, apologize. My plan - pledge to you but also to myself is to get As The Art Flies back up and running again. My goal is to retool and build my art practice. With that said, what can you expect in the coming weeks? Well, I have set a challenge for myself to create something everyday. I have not been totally 100% successful but I have been working. Sorry no pics yet but I will get them up. I am also working out in my brain a reflective process to figure out where I need to point my creative compass. At this time the fog is clearing and I am sailing with favorable winds towards a more craft - mixed media approach that utilizes my skill set of drawing, assembling, constructing and sewing. Simply put I am not a painter - I tried as I come from a long line of painters but where my heart truly lies is using my hands to craft. So, to my readers who have come back and tried to find something new, I hope to be more active and engaged in my blogging on As the Art Flies.
