Snippet Philosophy, by Kim Blair

(close-up section of larger mixed media)

Have you ever tried wearing your hair a different way... changed the colour, style... tried on a wig?  I bet you received mixed reactions from friends and family... some loved your new direction and some questioned it.  But in the end it is only yourself that you need to please.

It's the same with art...

Another snippet, by Kim Blair

(close-up section from larger work on paper)

Creating this new body of work has been exhilarating... my painting style has changed in many ways.
Some aspects of the work are familiar, but my creative boundaries have started to dissolve and I am very excited about the new direction my work is taking.

Sometimes we need to take risks...

Snippets of things to come, by Kim Blair

(close-up section from larger work on paper)

I have been creating a new body of work for my upcoming show at the Faculty of Extension.

No date for the show at this time, but it should be sometime this year... and since I do not want to post any photos of the new work that will be in the show I thought it might be fun to post a snippet now and then of one of the pieces... mixed media on 300 lb. watercolour paper. 

More to come...
