Do you find yourself inspired with the most glorious ideas when you don’t have a fig’s worth of time to pursue your idea? I have been heaped in the mire of overlapping businesses and sorting out the past possessions which have lost their pull by date in my world of art.
I am sorting, cleaning and putting together my studio in between work, gardens, shows, guilds, life, obligations and family.
I became inspired to write after I ran across these pictures I took this August in Downtown Seattle on an Architectural Tour of Lions, Griffins, and creatures OH MY.
It was a beautiful Sunny day in Seattle,[not a term used to describe this town very often.] our PMC guild arrived early to gather for the tour we were treated to a delightful look at the stunning details of buildings which have graced the skyline for many decades. Driving thru the city streets would never revel the beauty we encountered that day. We learned many of the buildings looking like marble or stone walls were actually terra cotta cleverly created to resemble other materials.
I got lost in the details and could have spent hours gazing at the vintage delights just hanging out waiting to be discovered.
I wonder do they come alive at night. What would a gargoyle say to an Indian chief? Do the faces wiggle to relieve the stiffness of the solemn look they were given at creation? Do the walruses wiggle their tusks?
All I know is they send my artsy-fartsy side off on a delightful daydream that has the possibility of becoming a wee bit of my art
