New Beginnings

Hi – Well as you can see I am a bit sporadic with this blogging thing. Yesterday, I added it to my daily schedule, so maybe things will improve. I think something else that will improve things would be a theme.

When I dusted off the blog and brought it back to life it was because I opened an online store. http://www.zazzle.com/chinaberriesemporium

I needed more of a web presence for my store so that, at some point I might actually get a customer! I had 3 sales actually. 2 to my Mother (do those count?) and one to someone in Australia! They bought a postcard and my royalty is 2 cents! Yay! I’m serious “Yay”. It was a thrill. I guess I’m a cheap date.

But, I don’t want to have a blog that’s all sales pitches. So what shall my blog be about? It started out to be about our move across country from San Diego to Greenville.

I will have to come up with something good.

About sharonpassmore

Hi. I am an artist living in Greenville, South Carolina. I am the Art moderator at Eratosphere, a forum of Ablemuse Review. I play with all sorts of art-forms, including digital design and fabric design, but nearest to my heart, at the moment, is collage. I like it best if the collage materials are not recognized from a distance and reveal themselves at close up, the way a painting can look realistic from a distance but on closer inspection, the freedom of brushstrokes becomes apparent. My materials are my brushstrokes. ​ I use anything I find in my collage that suits the purpose, beads, broken jewelry, wallpaper scraps etc... I always try to incorporate recycled packaging too. This is important to me, partly because of the environment, and partly because I get a little thrill out of recognizing the value of materials most people would discard as trash. Think of this next time you peel that wonderful foil seal off a new can of coffee. ​ I am inspired by many kinds of traditional arts and crafts. The cultural history of the world is just loaded with fabulous treasure, isn't it? I view the world of art and art history as a giant buffet and I want to sample a taste of everything. "Mmmmm that Wabi Sabi looks delicious! Gimme a little of that Horror Vacui! Check out those fantastic Molas!" I completely reject the idea that one artform is superior to another due to what is in fashion at the moment. Art is timeless. ​ If there's something I don't like too much, I try to keep in mind that I probably don't understand it, and that's a signal to me that I have something more to learn. There is always something more to learn. Thanks for visitng <3 Sharon Passmore
