You could say and I well admit I am collector of things that are ART.Today I would like to share my newest Chair which actual is a dinning room set that I just acquired and am in love with.I have many Chairs mostly vintage they all have there place in our home and all inspire me when I see them.

The workshop facilitated on Cortes Island by Lisa Gibbon’s this past weekend was a very exciting new approach to creating art for me.She did an amazing job getting the juice flowing for our art projects and many artists came from off island so the room was filled with inspiration.I have to say that I learned so much and am very excited to incorporate some new skills to my art practice. I share today the definition of Archetypes and my art that I finished during the workshop that I dedicate to the man that holds my heart tight Chris Murdock.
In literature, an archetype is a typical character, an action or a situation that seems to represent such universal patterns of human nature.An archetype, also known as universal symbol, may be a character, a theme, a symbol or even a setting. Many literary critics are of the opinion that archetypes, which have a common and recurring representation in a particular human culture or entire human race, shape the structure and function of a literary work. The phrase “collective unconscious” refers to experiences shared by a race or culture. This includes love, religion, death, birth, life, struggle, survival etc. These experiences exist in the subconscious of every individual and are recreated in literary works or in other forms of art.
