Sometimes I Just Go For It

There's this great song I ran into many years ago named "Sometimes I Just Go For It" by The Used. The passion behind the strokes of the piano make me stop and breathe. It doesn't have any words, nor does it need any. The amazing thing is that it's not a composed or written piece, just a man who sat at the piano and hit record.

    That is the exact way I feel about all the art I make. I don't always have a plan in place or pattern in mind. I don't read through magazines and blogs to see what's in style or the color palette of the year. For me, it's not about making something to sell, though I love it when you do purchase them because without you, I wouldn't be able to make more. So, please, keep those orders coming!

    This is my art. This is my hand and imagination at work. This glimpse of my interpretation of the world around me culminates into these pieces of art.  I paint my collections with wool and a hook (or knitting needle in some cases). 

So when you see one of my creations, feel the passion and intent I put into each piece. They take lots of inspiration, hours of concentration, and days of hard work to create and bring to you.

Sometimes I just go for it. Maybe you should too.
