My two favorite things

My two favorite things in life, you guessed it, are buttons and birds.  So when i stumbled onto the artist Ran Hwang who combines my two loves, it made my day. 

She creates large icons using items from the fashion industry mounting buttons, beads, and pins to the walls.  Her installations are beautiful and powerful, and have inspired me to get back into making fine art.  I love 'crafting' and repainting everything in sight, but i miss my studio classes that caused me to be completely out of my creative comfort zone. 

Her installations are bold, beautiful, and i can only imagine how time consuming it would be to hammer each pin, bead and button into the wall... i applaud her patience, skill and determination to complete her ultimate vision.

 I need to get back to a place where i am pushed to make things that are not my first idea or instinct.  And i thank you Ran for reminding me of that.
