art delivery : 05/08/21
This collage is part of a series I did featuring female artists who inspire me. The woman in this piece was the first artist I ever met... on the day I was born! From the time I was little, my mom, aka watercolor artist Judi Cumming, was cold hard proof that being an artist was possible. Throughout my childhood, she painted and showed her work a lot - then she stopped, and I was never really sure why. Well, we get into all of that and more. Our family always jokes that my mom is operating on a different cosmic plane than most of us, and after you hear her insightful thoughts today, I'm pretty sure you'll agree.
Not only is my mom on the podcast, but in order to keep the "Mother's Day" theme going, the boy who made me a mom is showing up for the Not-So-Speedy Speed Round! Yep, I convinced 14 year old Charlie to come on for a few minutes. Look/listen on my site, or subscribe on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify.
Now, how ‘bout some more flowers…
I can almost smell these beauties from here! Mmmm, peonies. Today’s society spotlight is shining on Colorado based photographer Natalie Pigliacampo. She photographs lots of other subjects - like families and food - but oh my goodness, her ‘floral sculptures’ make me wanna take a quiet moment just to breathe. Innnnnnhale, exhaaaaaaaale. Ahhhh, that was good. Follow her on Instagram at @nataliepigliacampo.
Have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you back in your inbox on Monday with more creative prompts, peeks into studios, art movies and more! ~ Danielle
