Take'n a left turn for the day

I know I had said I was going to post up the guidelines for the Artist Showcase today, but I need to push it back a bit so there isn't too much going on at once. I'll post it up soon, after people have had a chance to spread the word and marinate on the Artist Exchange.

I wrote my artist statement today. *grumble* I just wasn't in the right frame of mind to do so. I can talk about my art, my pieces, my likes, dislikes and all those wonderful little tangible things; but when it comes to writing about me -

*insert crickets*

I know they are important, especially for the direction I want to go so I won't stop here, I will expand on it - a little. I have a bio and I think a lot of my information can be found there, so I need to keep it simple and to the point, like a cover letter.

This is as far as I got -

My art is a exploration of shapes, sounds and textures from the world around me. It is fun and challenging to take wire, beads and crystals and form it into the vision in my head.

I thrive daily on chaos and random schedules. I am not tuned into symmetry, and my work often reflects this. As I work on a piece, my thought patterns often change and I have to follow those left and right turns off the beaten path of a planned process and see where the road takes me.
