This week's piece you may have already seen on Facebook or Instagram as I posted it and asked for suggestions of what it should be entitled. I have done this many times before - last week even - and always get names (at least three or four) that really resonate with me and always the artwork ends up entitled much better than if I would have named it on my own.
But, this time it was different. The suggestions were great and most of them I really liked - but none of them jumped out at me and felt "just right" - and I really want the names of my piece to feel right!
So, this time, I decided to not pick one of the ideas suggested and decided to name it myself.
This week's piece is entitled Whimsy and here is why:
There are many artists that inspire me time and time again. One such artist is Ray Rex. His artwork is bright, bold, and with abstract designs and lovely flow.
I am in awe of his ability to combine color, patterns, and shapes together in such a stunning way!
So this week I decided to create a Ray Rex inspired piece. It was a fun exercise.
When I started creating, I had no idea what the end result would look like. This is not usual for me. Typically I have an concept in mind - albeit a vague idea, like "flowers" or "sunshine". So to start, knowing that the artwork was not going to be a "thing" but instead a combination of bold colors, patterns and unique shapes was a different process for me.
So, I think Whimsy is a perfect name for this piece. I do hope you agree.
Make it a HAPPY day!
PS - As with all the pieces that I create this year for the One a Week Art Challenge, the original is not available for sale until February 8, 2019 when I host my celebratory art show.
PSS - I do have a print available of this whimsical, Ray Rex inspired piece.
