Not every piece of art deserves interpretation or analysis. First, it's boring to blah,blah,blah it to death. Secondly, the best work is sometimes visceral. It has no intellectual component which you can discern.
So I laugh when some buyer insists on a story. I have none for this piece. It is a sculptural, whimsical non-functioning version of a teapot.(Which by the way, is the most complicated pot a ceramist can construct (or create if you are being snobbish).
So that's it for this piece... it's gone to a lovely home- the most spiritual woman (Pilates Instructor) bought to display and enjoy. Sorry for the lack of blah, blah, blah today. Hope you enjoyed looking at the piece.

STAIN PAINTING- "DESIGNING WOMEN"
Whenever I choose to create a piece of art, I have to ask myself a number of impossible questions. Like-"Should I paint any representational detail?""Can I defy the image?" " Will I bow to the pressure of reality?"
"Will I allow the viewer to see something of the image I am painting?" Inevitably, the questions are answered in my subconscious as I let the brush and the paint overtake my rational mind.So, although I consider myself to be a pure abstractionist, I often succumb to the need to allow the viewer to "see" with my eyes.
There is always a part of my psyche which leads me down the path of perceptual acceptance. Yes, I will let the viewer in on my little secret.
I have studied the formal principals of art. Foundation- that's the name given to the earliest part of art education. Then the artist has years to unlearn everything. Oh, it's been a struggle not to paint landscapes, portraits and flowers. Those are the paintings which sell easily. I compromise. Somewhat and sometimes.
One day I will resist the urge to show any recognizable image. But for now I walk the tightrope of style. The style which lies between intuition and cognition.
My viewers usually comment on the wide range of styles and media in which I work. Yes, I am erratic, catch me on any particular day and you will see the yin and yang of the artist. I am not all things to all people, just to me.
