And Buried under Some Papers..............

I found another unfinished collage painting.............

So I finished it.

I'm kinda frustrated. I create ...."CUTE" not EDGY. I don't want SCARY, but maybe just a little DARK.
I want to create something "HAUNTING" or "MYSTICAL". Maybe a little "TWISTED" without being GOREY.  
Hmmmm, now Edward Gorey.........love HIS work.



I want "R" and I keep coming up with "GP-13".............
I want to paint something I'd actually want to hang in my ECLECTIC home.
Stay tuned.....It might get a little bit BIZARRE! (But that would be a GOOD thing! LOL!)

Good luck! I love dark and twisted but can't seem to create that way! All my stuff is cute and happy when I don't really feel that way.

I really like your cute art. I've learned that sometimes you have to let the art be what it wants to be and not what you want it to be. But I do eagerly await your delving into the realm of dark and slightly twisted. Hopefully you can share how you went about it so I can do it too! Best wishes!

All you have to do is get in touch with your sinister side, Cindi - lol!! I adore Edward Gorey's drawings, too. Why can't you do both? I have pretty much given up trying to make sense of what I do. One minute I am painting skellys, and then I am painting a cute little owl, and then I am drawing a very scary girl. It's all me. And your art is all you, too. Your love of animals is so obvious in these pieces. Maybe you need to make your sinister work with people. Come up with an evil girl - lol!! Ok, enough from me. xox!!

Oh my ... your blog is a blast. I love it's bizarre quirkiness. It's creative, it's fun and I can't stop laughing after Edward Gorey's book. I now know why you and Sandy are good friends. I have quite a few of Sandy's wonderfully strange little girls. You both should do a show together.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and introducing yourself to me.
