Today I am setting off on a new online journey - sharing a little of myself, my art and my passions. I feel blessed over the past year to "meet" many artist friends through classes and online groups and having a website and journalling here seems like the next step on this creative voyage of discovery.
"THE REAL VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY IS NOT IN SEEKING NEW LANDSCAPES BUT IN HAVING NEW EYES."
- MARCEL PROUST
This quote by Marcel Proust is truly one of my all time favourites. I came across it soon after I came back to art making and the first piece of art I ever sold, titled "new eyes", was inspired by these words.
...for me, creating art and appreciating art is so much about our eyes
- ...what we see and how we put it onto paper or canvas,
- ...the art we view and the connection it creates in us.
The artistic life is a journey. It's not always easy. Inspiration comes and goes. Sometimes it's fulfilling and sometimes it fills you with despair - but it is constantly moving forward and there is always something new for our eyes to contemplate.
...so today I welcome you to my own small corner of the internet. I look forward to sharing my art and thoughts with you...
I would love for you to join me... ♥ Ce xo
