Clean up, Clear out

Art, art collecting, Events
Time to clean up and clear out!

Over the past few years, I’ve gotten fairly prolific between Pink Buddha memes, books, advice columns, video making and my visual arts practice. You have cheered me on through the process of navigating between traditional media and digital media, between my right hand and my other hand, my failures and my wins. We’ve had an adventure, haven’t we?

Along the way something I made may have resonated with you. You made a note of it, thinking “Gosh, I really want that!” Only the timing wasn’t right and then, time got away from both of us. 

I get it. 

And now the amount of work sitting in my studio has gotten away from me. So much so, I can no longer get in to what was once my actual workspace. It’s embarrassing. 

To save face, I’m hosting a studio clean up and clear out event. 
It runs privately thru the end of September. (9/30/19)

Between 70 and 80% off.
Operative word: affordable. 

Some things I’m willing to ship.
Framed works are not eligible for shipping. 
Come get ‘em or make your own arrangements for shipping. 

Small and large digitals.
Abstract and figurative. (Yes, abstract.)
Other hand paintings. 

You in?

Painting With My Left Hand

Art, Painting With My Left Hand

I’m taking a break from my usual creative meanderings. Got inspired by a conversation with a mentor of mine. The original idea was to have a written conversation between my self as a child and my self as the parent I wish to have had.

The child would write to the parent using the less dominant hand and the parent would obviously respond writing with the dominant hand.

And in true Terri fashion, I grabbed the idea and made it visual. Maybe this changes the original intent of the exercise, I don’t know. What I do know is that I’m having a great time getting out of my way, not requiring artistic excellence, and processing the world both inside and outside of me.

The fun part is when my right hand wants to come in and make a correction. I have to tell it to trust that the child is doing it right, saying it right. By right, I mean authentically.

Below is what I have done to date. I’m sure there will be more since I am enjoying the process and work immensely. Not to mention that I really like being in the back yard under the tent. It’s as if I have an actual studio space.

The paintings featured here are all acrylic on paper, 18 x 24″
