DescriptionMost of us are driven by one passion or another. Many of us are dedicated and committed to that same passion. But making a study of Tamara de Lempicka, one discovers that surprisingly she was not. She had an astronomical talent, and a devoted clientele, she was acutely attuned to both technical skill as well as style. She was not one to let herself be driven to and fro by her passions. Instead she took the driver seat and furnished the road map and maneuvered into the future. This is my take on her 'Self Portrait in a Green Bulgatti' and of course right off it is not green because it is my painting, and if I owned a Bulgatti it most certainly would not be green. You see Tamara has taught me to be driven is the forfeiting of one own power, but to get behind the wheel with the proper road map passion is steered into destiny. Powerful lesson. If I could truly learn and apply that alone, my life could be in my hands instead of on my shoulders.
Alma Lee, GREEN BAY, WI Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I am an artist and a poet, living in a small community in Wisconsin with the love of my life, my husband Steve and the always-joyous presence of my two beloved dogs Dixson and Tripper.
I have loved art longer than life and failed and succeeded in both often. Leonardo da Vinci said; "Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art." Concerning my work I have found no truer statement. What I create is a direct expression of the governing spirit within in me. Be it light, I pour out its overflow, be it darkness, I wrestle to relinquish it to the light. Christ has shown me the beauty in both.
Recently color pencil and markers have become my weapon of choice, but in the not so distant past I have drawn and created my art digitally. Now more than not, I choose to employ them both. You can buy my originals on Boundless Gallery, Ebay, Redbubble and www.Esty.com
