About This Blog

My name is Michéle P. Owens and I am a Visual Artist. My studio is based in Olympia Fields, IL (Chicago born and raised--South Side). I love to create in various mediums. Most recently I have been painting with acrylics. I love to create! To start with something so vague and distorted and then to end up with something that explains the vagueness or distortion is more than intriguing to me (more about me and my art later). I started this Blog as an extension of my website (www.michelepowens.com). It serves many purposes: a means of 'exhaling' while I work--to release the crowded thoughts that might interfere with the process of creating art; and as an online avenue for creative and expressive writing.
Let's see what will come from this..

Canvas Project 2 - Art House Co-op

July 31 - September 4, 2009
Atlanta, GA

Atlanta Airport Atrium Gallery

To visually create definitions on five 3" x 3" canvases using any desired medium (I chose paint markers), focusing on a list of 5 randomly selected, Art House Co-op community generated words - each word on its respected canvas. I also purposed to try and keep with including some form of abstraction in the project.

In working on this project I was reminded of my dislike for working small...I definitely prefer something much larger for working on. Not only is it easier on the eyes, but I feel freer and more fluid when I work larger. This was a reminder to appreciate those artists who feel opposite of what I do - those who prefer this small expression of creativity. Still, I have seen some wonderfully impressive works in a small format. To each his own...just keep arting!

In addition to the exhibition at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport's Atrium Gallery in Atlanta, Ga, one or more of the canvases will be included in a book entitled "The Art House Encyclopedia VOL. 1".

This was my first experience with traveling work and with Art House. It was fun and inspirational, especially when reviewing some of the other work that was created for the project.
