Doves of Peace

My Vision of Peace
In creating this piece, I had to stretch myself- both in the use of brighter, lighter colors and in feeling a lighter mood in my understanding of peace (than I usually do). I created this piece specifically with that goal in mind: to stretch myself through stretching my art. It was also partially the other way around: I stretched my art to stretch my understanding of peace. I think that is one of the gifts that artists have to give the world: they are willing to try and keep trying,all different styles and techniques, ideas and ways, and they are not afraid of making a mistake or if they are- they still continue stubbornly. Artists desire and willingness to keep stretching is something that the world needs in order to make peace. It takes stretching, reaching, getting past boundaries, forgetting old ways, looking in new places, and reaching where we do not know how to reach. These are things artists do well; we need to share this process with the world in helping the world know how to stretch towards peace as well.


Medium
This piece is oil pastel, pencil and pen on a board. I used a lot of smudging as I usually do.

Artists are at their most vulnerable when stepping out of their comfort zone. I applaud you for expanding your horizons, taking a walk on the wild side if you will~

There are new avenues to explore, new sights and sounds to take in and savor. I'm for that and more. Take a chance, without risk there is no reward. Cliche's for sure but then what is life? We are all in search of unequivocal individuality. A fingerprint or signature that proclaims who we are without saying a word. Something that goes beyond our physical form or sociological identity~

Artists are unique creative creatures who can't sit still and are always reaching for something~
