Into the Soup!  Life and Art Without Recipe

into the soupLife is like a pot of soup: you need lots of good leftovers.  I began making soups during the four years I owned the Sage Cup Cafe.  My soups were good, people loved them and many times would ask for the name and recipe of the soup and I would be at a loss because I had neither.  My soups were made from leftovers, and so the soup analogy to life.   I keep looking for some sort of coherence to my life and art, a style, a plan, a purpose, a recipe and find I have none.   And after all these years of self chastising for not being a more together person, after therapy, self help books, and lectures from friends and family, it was art that finally taught me that how I am just might be OK.  And if you are one of those people who secretly wishes to do art, but simply cannot allow yourself because ‘I’m not an artist’, perhaps you will gain something from following my journey. A good soup starts out with some leftovers in the fridge.  And I’ve got plenty!

    Carolyn, What do you mean you are not an artist? My gosh your work is lovely. I am so impressed with both your digital art and colored pencil. I look forward to chatting more via email. Nice to hear from you my friend. Love, Sheilan
