Reflecting Alice and the dark Rabbit Holes

Searching for the atmosphere of Wonderland, adding in a bit of mystery with lines and details. Somewhere in the mix of layers of medium the  personification of the end comes…….feeling like this is as much as I want to say with this piece, so I will stop for today and let it breathe on it’s own for  a week or so and if it still resonates life at that point  I will call it done!

About Cathy S. Hegman

Art, much like a road links people together both visually and mentally. One can attain a glimpse inside the artist’s soul by studying the artist’s work, and perhaps find something that links them to the artist and the art. A work of art has the ability to resonate and touch the emotions without regard to age, gender, race, or religion through the application of pigment to canvas or paper. Art can be the voice that cries out without limits, or sometimes whispers the thoughts of the creator. Art speaks silently, yet conjures up feelings and gives satisfaction that is undeniable, and yet intrinsic. It validates our need to learn about ourselves, and gives us freedom to search for our own identities. The road is long and often dusty, but always renewing the spirit with inspiration. It is my hope in this lifetime to give a part of what I have learned through and on my journey with others. The deepest form of us is revealed in our thoughts and my art is the translation of my thoughts to paper and canvas. I paint layers of color and line to create a history of marks that will guide the viewer into my world of thought and engage them in the process. I embed personal symbols throughout my art to give it deeper meaning. I encourage you to think about life in a visual way and to contemplate our connections with each other and the world we share.

    Love your new work!! I tried to log in as follower but they wanted my friends and all info. Don’t know whether I like that . Girl we need to get you down here as a w.s. instructor. I love your philosophy and content. Am teaching a w.s. in Sept. Will be emphasizing that artists need to put ‘themselves’ into their work. Paintings mean so much more to me when they have a personal thread. Sometimes this may only be evident to me and other times tell a story to the viewer. Your work has always had that quality that holds the viewer ‘s attention not just to view the work but to make you wonder and think about the artist’s intention.

    • Hey sorry they asked that, I think you can skip that part and just follow without giving your life’s secrets to them, if not then that is not good. Thanks for the nice words about my work and my thoughts etc. I would love to come and teach a workshop, I am just waiting for a good time for me. My dog is so iffy with his health and has a really hard time when I leave him etc, so I am planning to begin the teaching again maybe sometime in the next year or so if he gets on more sure footing or I find a good sitter for him. You will be the first place I contact to teach for sure! Meanwhile I will just paint and keep blogging to share. Thanks for all the support and, of course, you know I feel we are practically related by art. I have admired and continue to admire your work and your philosophy on art as well, we are gliding on the same wavelength for sure. This is what makes art so wonderful, the connections that occur with no relevance to distance, age, race, creed, religion etc. Art is a truly universal link in the human chain.
