update on life

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 7, 2014, 9:49 AM

my shop: attic papers | my blog: ersimarina's workroom | my twitter | my facebook | my pinterest | my flickr

A year has gone by again, so many things happening, a stream of lives and events. Not easy to summarize, not an easy tale to tell.

How are you all?

I admit that I feel a bit strange writing this journal entry, all the time wondering whether I will stay in touch. Manage to stay in touch. Life has become very demanding and managing my time as an artist working at home can be as complicated as managing a company. Maybe? I have never managed a company, so I base my observation on hear-say.

I'm starting to think again that deviantART can be part of my life and that I can be part of deviantART. My work has changed a lot, everything about it has changed. No fractals, not any serious attempts at photography. I went back to traditional art and what best defines what I do is 'mixed media art'. These are three comfortable little words that contain an entire universe. I mainly use paper - many kinds of paper - to create my collages, assemblages and paintings. I also love using fabric and very simple, very humble embroidery stitches applied by hand.

You can get an idea of what my work generally looks like if you care to visit my online shop attic papers. And what will surely grab your attention is that I love 'white on white'. At the beginning I thought that it was a very risky decision but, as it turns out, many other people love it too! My previous journal entry - posted on 16 May 2013! - was about my 'paper homes' and they are a clear example of what I mean by 'white on white'.

Over the past year several 'homes' were relocated in kind collectors' houses and the remaining ones are those you can see in my shop.

As the links at the top of my journal indicate, you can find me in six different online venues aside from dA. That's a lot! I try to keep up with everything, as well as my art, and I often fail. I haven't written a blog entry for almost a month, for instance. My facebook account is quite new and it's absorbed be for a bit too long. Time management. Still learning.

I used to write journal entries in no time and this one has taken me forever. I hope at least some of you will read it and a big 'thank you' for that!

Thank you so much, Hanan! I keep renewing my premium membership, so I guess the desire to come back is always there somewhere. Your words are very sweet :love:
