By The Wind by `Foxfires on deviantART
starting a new art series
we choose wind because it so represents our homeland (Flagstaff, Arizona) and is a huge part of Steve's career (sailing) and also reminds me of what San Diego, although we love it, lacks (weather)! I applaud artists who make something that cannot be seen, be seen :)
~*~THE INTERVIEW: ~*~
[a wispy interview with wind artist, FoxFires]
Q` what is the windiest place you've been
A` Cannon Beach, Oregon - in December. 90 mph winds! Raging ocean. No power. LOVED IT.
Q` how does wind influence your art?
A`Metaphorically, wind is in everything I do, because I literally go where the wind of inspiration takes me! Literally, it just sounds cool
Q`what's the most challenging & rewarding part of the art you create?
A` Bringing a client's idea to life. SO hard, since it is outside my natural flow of ideas. The reward is the astonishment in their eyes.
Q`what do you do in life when there doesn't seem to be enough wind (goodness?)
A`Seek it out. In my case, that means - go to the ocean. A never ending source of wind/inspiration/joy/muse/delight/daydream/nightwhisper
Q`Tell us about something you've loved, that has blown away.
A`Oh who hasn't been in love with a balloon as a child, only to have it plucked up and stolen into the sky? A gentle introduction to loss.
