Outside of Portland Pottery, at 118 Washington Avenue, this very colorful collage, even on this drab morning, salutes the city. Sculpture has always been something I've struggled to understand. Pottery, I like but have no real desire in taking on. Now painting, on the other hand, is something I have a great interest in pursuing some day soon. I see objects to photograph; I see objects to paint... everywhere I seem to look these days. In conversation once, an artist friend (no, not her) once told me that as long as you don't lose the 'eye' to be able 'to see' images to photograph, it's ok to pass them up. Lately, I've been 'seeing' objects I'd like to tackle with a brush. Over these last 13 weeks (sometimes in solitary), I've had time to myself to do a lot of soul searching, wondering and 'seeing'. This creative piece of me too will surface someday soon!
