Wings to Soar and Glide

Heather Powers of Humblebeads is the main editor on the Art Bead Scene blog, a wonderful source of information about jewelry and fantastic art beads. I'm one of the other editors, posting from time to time.

This week the editors are posting about originality, finding one's own clear expression and voice, and the questions around copyright and not using someone's ideas.

My post ran on Monday, April 20, I titled it "Water Skimming Wings" - you can follow the link to read it if you haven't seen it yet.

I realized in doing the post that I've been using wings a lot lately in my designs, so it was easy to use that imagery as a way to talk about icons and ideas - pop over to the Art Bead Scene blog and take a look at all the great feedback and ideas being shared there - and if you are inspired to do it, add your comments to the conversation.

I'd love to read your thoughts about the topic.

Lynn, I thought your post over at ABS was very considered, very thoughtful. I very much appreciated it. Certain images are iconic and you will see them repeated over and again. It's finding your own meaning, your own voice which makes for originality. My humble little opinion.

Similar to LeAnn's thoughts, all art has been done before,it's our own interpretation that makes it ours, or different. Your posts are always thought provoking! Only each person knows if they are true or honest!

Sarah, That's very cool - the more people who understand about finding their own special voice the better the creative art world becomes, thanks for doing that!
