Creative Find: Shiloh

So yes...........Gypsy is blogging again!!!!!!!!!!!

By pure chance, while searching for something, I saw Anahata`s blog and her introduction to Shiloh...wow...I had to explore..... and that inspired me enough to get rid of the winter blues........ did some art and here I am...blogging again...thanks Shiloh and thanks Anahata!!!!!

Have a look at these....the colours just got to me ....like I said...no more winter blues.......




This is some of Shiloh`s words.....
“I am rebel. And a woman in process. So all of my projects, from my books and paintings to my resume are rebellious works of love and outrageousness in process. One of my gifts is that I am not a perfectionist. I don't try to get it right. I just share what I have and I hope it reaches someone in a way that they need to be met. I don't fit into fill in the blank spaces, and most folks don't. When we try, we end up looking and feeling crunched. I did not have traditional art training and I had to leave art college to save my own creativity from the depths of conformity. So when folks ask where I got my training, I just say, my family. Because I did. My mom taught me, encouraged me, to be as different and unique as I felt like being. I stopped trying to fit in at about age 14, and not a moment too soon. I was done with all that. I became a punk rocker without the anger. And I was proud of it. But how can you put punk rock princess on your resume? Where is the space for writing, 'I have been drawing all my life' on a resume? Or, 'I am the one my friends turn to when they are in need' or 'I am inventing my own legend' or 'I have written 100 poems".

Go and have a look...there`s plenty more....

OMG!!!!!! I was at her gallery in Mendocino just last month. Stumbled over it quite by accident. Had no idea she was in Mendocino. I have one of her madonnas. Came home from that visit with another artpiece and lots of milagros. Hey, sooooooo happy to see you BACK. Wheeee.
