"Contemplation" - found my own style

Hello dear friends,

Welcome back to a new post! How are you all doing? Hope all is fine and you got in the mood for Christmas and feel creative and cozy :).
This is a post about looking for your own style in art and being happy with what you find. Since i started with mixed media, i tried to realise what my style would be. And that is the case with all of us, no matter what we create. I watched many tutorials and demos and what not trying to find the courage to create. And i started with a journal and i started showing it around to obtain some reactions. It was very diverse from the style point of view: all grungy and childish and romantic and anything else you can think about. 
But then people started saying i should start creating on a bigger scale. So i went up to A3. Then i found the courage to paint on canvas, first a 12x12 inch and then a 5 x 24 inch. Can't show much more right now, because all the others are still exhibited at 12 Doispe, and i really did not manage to take pictures of them. Actually, due to translation work i got 2 weeks before the exhibition started, i did not have the time to finish everything i wanted to exhibit. Which turned out to be fine, because the space was just enough for the 3 of us. 
But this did not stop me from continuing with my list and so i got to do this A3 piece of work that i called "Contemplation" and which i find it represents me a lot. I am happy with what i found to be my style and i hope i will be inspired to create some more in this style.
Until next timw, when i hope to present with some of the exhibited work, i wish you all a lovely time!


Salutare, prieteni!

Bine ati revenit pe blog! Sper ca sunteti bine cu totii si ca ati intrat in starea de spirit specifica Craciunului :). 
Acesta este un post despre cautarea stilului propriu, in calitate de artist. O sa va spun pe scurt experienta si concluzia la care am ajuns eu. Cred ca sunt foarte putini norocosii care sa isi gaseasca stilul de la primele creatii. De fapt, nici nu stiu daca sa ii numesc norocosi, pentru ca eu admir si artistii cu stiluri multiple, sincera sa fiu. Insa, cu toate acestea, eu am incercat sa imi gasesc un stil al meu inca de la inceput, cand inca ma instruiam privind tutoriale pe net :). Si chiar daca gasisem deja ceea ce stiam ca as vrea sa fac, imi lipsea curajul sa trec la treaba, in mare parte din cauza lipsei de materiale/fonduri pentru a mi le procura. Stiti cum e cand esti foarte exigent cu tine insuti :). 
In orice caz, am inceput cu un jurnal mixed media in care am creat in toate stilurile posibile cu care m-am simtit eu confortabil: grunge, steam-punk, copilaros, romantic etc. Dupa care am inceput sa-l arat prietenilor ca sa obtin ceva reactii. Si prima reactie a fost ca trebuie sa trec la scara mai mare. 
Am facut pasul spre A3 si 2 panze de 35 x 30 si 60 x 20 cm. Nu va pot arata mare lucru acum, pentru ca nu am avut timp sa fotografiez creatiile inainte de a le expune la 12 Doispe. Dar promit sa o fac dupa ce se termina.
In orice caz, aveam o lista cu niste idei pentru creatiile pe care voiam sa le expun, lista pe care nu am apucat sa o pun in practica 100% pentru ca am primit de lucru. Insa asta nu m-a oprit sa continui dupa ce am expus lucrarile. Asa am ajuns sa realizez creatia A3 de mai sus, care simt ca ma reprezinta foarte bine. Sunt foarte multumita cu rezultatul cautarii mele si sper ca voi fi inspirata de acest stil.
Pana data viitoare, sa avem zile calme si frumoase!
