In looking for my artistic voice and creative identity - I pondered what are symbols that resonate with me... Circles and clocks, and circular clocks - came to mind immediately.
collage 1 - with 14 clocks and over 30 circles
In the last 10 years I created an inspiration collage, and learned consciously that I like circles and clocks more than I realized. I did the collage as an exercise from the Artists Way. (create a collage of items that reflect your life or interests, with 10 magazines and 20 minutes to select images.)
I did the exercise again a couple years later - collage 2 . This time I covered the poster board completely, added in much more color, far fewer clocks and circles (but they are still present) and included many more words.
I think both collages are energetic and fun... So maybe fun and energy is part of my artistic voice.
Much like when I am scuba diving and scanning the watery environment for fish and other creatures, now I scan my day to day life for circles. I see more than just circles, it's training me to really look at the world around me and not just coast on auto pilot.
I leave you with the wise words of the great philosopher of baseball:
