Turmeric

I remember cooking with turmeric in my first apartment and it dying the white linoleum in the kitchen and I thought, "Well, there goes a piece of my deposit". However, the beauty of this vibrant, golden root is that it does not last forever. Turmeric is temporary. I love knowing that making art from the earth is time based. I don't feel a nagging at my heart for painting with plastics anymore. I can play the way I've always hoped I could. 

Created to Create

This is the first piece of paper that I kept as a success. It has texture and is soft to the touch. Just like a moth. And like the moth is drawn to light I am drawn to the making process. I have to make. It isn't something I can suppress for long. All you makers out there know what I'm saying, right? We couldn't stop if we tried. Some of us are dancers, some of us are sculptors, some of us share with prose and some of us share and share and share our multi talents because we are inspiration personified! The fact is that we are the makers and we create because we must. We create because there is nothing more we'd rather do. We create because we were created to create.
