Description Christmas day 2004 I spent with my two daughters and my husband It was peacful and as happy a Christmas as I have ever had. The traditional pressure and angst accumulated over the years and through several traumatic Chirstmases seemed to finally been liftedEarly in the morning as we opened presents I began to draw . I was just putting together lines and colors with no particular idea in mind when this leaping figure grew.'My daughter turns the picture upside down and calls it dispair when she isn't feeling so jubilant.'Original is not for sale.
Luci Kelly, Salt Lake City, Utah Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement Really I just like to put pretty colors together.
My husband says that I see naked people everyway but the truth is I see everything in everything else. The earth is a living interconnected entity.
I‘ve come to this a little late in life but right now I find that I can't sit without drawing, (I've done some of my favorite sketches in the ‘margins of agendas and on restaurant placemats),
I want my pictures to engage people.
My influences, Rodin bodies, Weston’s simplicity of form, luscious renaissance painting like Rafael and Brueghel, Michelangelo’s sensuality and the interactive Hidden Pictures in Boy’s Life Magazine.
Really I believe I can find influence and inspiration where ever I am. I could draw and color until the moment I die and would not be able to get everything I want to see on paper.
I have had other lives as Lucie Seymour, Luci Seymour and Luci O'Neal.
Words to describe my work.. I don't know maybe
