Eclecticism

Hey Outlier : So you’ve emereged from your creative closet. Now What?

OUTLIER/OUTSIDER ART & ARTIST  SEEM TO BE GAINING IN EXCEPTENCE & POPULARUTY AS OF RECENT .THO I HAVENT BEEN OUT OF MY  CREATIVE CLOSET, THAT LONG MYSELF .ONLY SINCE THE LATER OF 2015@52YO. AFTER MY FATHER PASSED AWAY. HAVING HAD A FEW PRIOR INSURMOUNTABLE LOSSES. GREIF REFUSED TO TAKE A HOLLIDAY.   FROM  MY DADS PASSING ,UNDER TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCES .SADLY AT THE HANDS OF OTHERS .I UNEXPECTLY LOSS MY HUSBAND TO SUICIDE 2012 AND MY FRIEND OF 35YEARS 2014 .TO SOMETHING AKIN TO FOUL PLAY. I RELAY THOSE ALWFUL TIMES IN MY LIFE TO YOU ,BECAUSE THATS WHAT PUSHED ME TO START EMERCING MYSELF INTO A ‘HOBBIE’ OF SORTS .TO KEEP MY MIND OFF THE GROUND SHAKING GREIF THAT BECAME MY CONSTANT COMPANION .CONSUMING ME ,WHILE IT SUCKED EVERY OUNCE OF MY LIFE FORCE FROM MY BEING. BUT AS I SAY IN ONE OF THE MANY ASSANINE  BIOS IVE WRITTEN ABOUT MYSELF. IN FIRST AND SECOND PERSON . “BUT FOR TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCES NEW BEGINNINGS PRESENT THEM SELVES”. I WAS ALWAYS CONSIDERED BY FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO BE ARTSY, OR  QUOTE  “A GOOD ARTIST’.BUT NEVER REALLY THOUGHT OF MYSELF AS  SUCH. I HAD ALWAYS BEEN GOOD AT DECORARING WITH MATERIALS ,THAT TO THE FURNITURE & HOME DECOR SHOWROOM GUY, WOULDNT STAND FOR BEING  PAIRED TOGEATHER.NOT IN A MILLION YEARS.BUT IVE ALWASYS BEEN ABLE TO FIND UNIQUE ITEMS &JOIN THEM WITH OTHER UNIQUE ITEMS.FOR A PRETTY SPECTACULAR OUTCOME. DABBLING IN FASHION FROM TIME TO TIME . DESIGNING CLOTHING ,MOSTLY FOR MYSELF .MANY PIECES WITHOUT PATTERNS. CUTTING SOMETHING UP & REARAGING IT INTO SOMETHING NEW. KINDA LIKE A TEXTILE DR.FRANKINSTEIN. I’VE ALSO BBEEN A BIT OF A  CLOSET WRITER . AFTER I MET MY LIFE PARTNER SCOTT ,HE BEGAN TO ENCOURAGE ME TO PURSUE, WHAT HE SAW AS TALET .SO I BEGAN. AT FIRST WRITTING ,THEN WITH DIGITAL ART & BACK TO TRADITIONAL ART.

DEVELOPING MY ADVANT GARDE STYLE . NEVER FORMALLY TRAINED,WELL AT LEAST ,NO FURTHER THAN A CRAPPY PUBLIC SHCOOL, ON AND OFF ARTS PROGRAM WOULD LEND. I HAVE FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO PENETRATE THE REINFORCED WALLS OF OF THE WORLD THAT SEEMS TO BELONG TO THE ELITELY PEDAGREED CHOSEN ONES . WHOM SEEM TO LOOK A ME SYMPATHECLY ,TILT THERE REALITY DISCONNECTED ART DEGREED HEADS ,& SMILE .ALL THE WHILE  GIVEING OFF AN ENERGY THAT SCREAMS, GO WAY OLD LADY. POLITELY GIVING ME AN EMAIL ADDRESS TO SUBITT MY WORK .TO SOMEONE IN CHARGE OF THAT SORTA THING.GENERLY NEVER RESPONDING. TO BE FAIR I HAVENT SUBMITED, TO THAT MANY POWERS THAT BE .AFTER A COUPLE NON RESPONDERS GREATING ME WITH A COLD FLIP RECEPTION ,USEING THE OVER USED PHASE “IF YOUR A GOOD FIT”WE WILL LET YOU KNOW .BLAH BLAH BLAH.I DECIDED TO DO SOME HOMEWORK .TO FIND OUT WHO I WAS AS AN ARTIST .I DIDNT EVEN HAVE A NAME FOR WHAT I DID. I GUESS BECAUSE I DIDNT COME OUT ,SO TO SPEAK ,UNTIL I WAS IN MY FIFTIES,I COULDNT AND STILL CANT EXPERAMENT WITH ENOUGH DIFFERENT KINDS OF MEDIUMS.I LOVE THEM ALL I WANT TO EXPERIENCE THEM ALL ,I WANT TO MIX THEM ALL TOGEATHER  HAVE MY WAY WITH THEM , AND LAY IN THE MIDDLE SMOKING A CIGGARETT IN THE AFTER GLOW . I AM STILL IN HOT PURSUTE OF MY SPOT ON A GALLERY WALL .ARMED WITH CONTINUING EDUCATION OF THE SELF TAUGHT KIND.THO I HAVE HAD A BIT OF MY WORK IN AN ONLINE GALLERY,MILENA OLINESKYS EXPOSITION BLOG ,SHE HERSELF A VERY TALENTED  ,KIND &CLASSY LADY.SHE IS ACTUALY THE ONE WHO CALLED MY ART ADVANT GARDE.IT WAS A “””PERFECT FIT””” FOR ME AS IVE NEVER BEEN A TEAM PLAYER.MARCHING ,SOMETIMES  AIMLESSLY, TO MY OWN TUNE .BUT NEVER THE LESS MARCHING. &REMEMBERING HOW  OFTEN MY ELEMENTRY SCHOOL REPORT CARDS TEACHERS NOTES ,STATED JEANNIE DOESNT PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS IN QUTATION MARKS . .ALL BEGAN TO COME TOGEATHER TO MAKE SENSE. POINTING ME THE RIGHT DIRECTION. NOW MARCHING TOWRD THE VANGARDIAN NEON WELCOME SIGN ,LOOKING FOR OTHER MISFITS AND OUT CAST PROUDLY WITH MY HEAD HEALD HIGH. TELLING ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN & TELLING EVEN THOS WHO DONT CARE .I AM AN ELITE ARTIST &WRITER  BELONING TO THE THE ELITEST OF THE ELITE …… I AM AN OUTLIER
