Tis the Season

New work is beginning to happen in the studio…thoughts of how this year has gone by much too fast have been on my mind as of late. There have been things to attend to  other than the making of art,that have kept me out of the studio for almost a week, with the exception of  a sprinkling stolen  of moments; in which I just abandoned the important tasks and had to get some paint on my hands.  I feel a terrible disconnect from my life, if I am out of my studio for more than a day or two. I can literally feel the cords of depression wrapping around me and tightening their hold.  Today found me in the studio all afternoon and into the night.  I feel like a weight has lifted, and the bonds have loosened and I am free again….at least for a while.

I love the beginnings of paintings, they are at their most possible stage and the ideas are endless and flow with ease.  Here is  a detail shot of one that is on the easel this month.

thinking Scarlet Gloves…of course that could change tomorrow!

Detail of Scarlet Gloves by Cathy Hegman

This  detail shows a bit of the texture I  have achieved so far .  I know at this point the gloves are rather orange but they are at their earliest stage at this point, and I think with layers and veils of hues on top of this orange hue they will have a really vibrant scarlet effect.

A couple of layers more….at this point it is too soft and fragile I will let it cure tonight and hit it again in the morning…

Beginning stage working on the layers of texture and the layers of color and pigment

More to come later …..

Have a blessed and very Merry Christmas!

As always thank you for reading and I hope you find a sliver of inspiration in my work and words.

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.
