MY BREAK-THROUGH IN THE ARTS. Besides writing up my YEAR END IN REVIEW (which is now over 9500 words in the making), I have been creating the
SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature™
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009 – Holiday Card
for this year & everything was going NO WHERE FAST. I have extremely particular taste when it comes to how they MUST BE PRESENTED. That’s all there is to it & them. Special Toys that are eliminating RACISM, deserve a Special Treatment.
Then, I did something quite unexpected of moi– that would be called in clinical circles as letting the LEFT SIDE OF YOUR BRAIN take over. I merely took the Collaged Photo of the 10 TOYS & placed them in a horizontal vs. vertical format & not only did they all fit in, they appeared all the better!
IN OTHER WORDS: When was the last time U tried squeezing 10 TOYS’ Pix into a 2 X 4 inch square? That vantage point gives the card an entirely different feel. That made my day! One step closer to the finished product(ion).
Last year, THE TOYS’ Holiday Card was a Calendar in which they ‘only celebrated’ the Weekends of 2011 – a spin-off of the hit song WORKIN FOR THE WEEKENDS by the incomparable Huey Lewis, but this year – like all years had to be unusual & different. Huey is online at: http://www.hueylewis.com/
Therefore, Art Lesson #1 is: If the graphic duzent fit one way, try the other! U just never know when U’ll find that perfect match-up!
