Spirit Soul Sweetness (sold)
Spirit, Soul & Sweetness, ©2011. KmBerggren ~ Message from the Artist: All of my life, I have been writing, and collecting my writings, poems, stories and blurbs, painting titles, phrases and tag lines. I have been wanting, for a couple years now, to find a way to incorporate the words into the paintings ~ to give a glimmer of my thoughts behind the work ~ a glimmer brighter than the title can provide ~ and to be present when the painting's statement was not around. With Spirit, Soul & Sweetness, I really felt a need to include words. I was able to clip paper directly from my journal, write in my own handwriting with my trusty drawing pen ~ and adhere the text, scumbling paint around and layering transparent tones over the paper ~ welcoming that little slip of paper right into the world of the image, making it feel necessary, making it appear natural. I have done this just once now, but I can already tell that a new door has opened to me, and conquering this fear will lead to additional fears to be conquered. How fun. The Expanded Visions Collection ~ paintings inspired by the notion of a simple word or phrase taken from my Vision Board. The word or statement then becomes the title of the piece.
