I feel like a pendulent 4 year old. I want a Oompa Loompa!

Not long ago I posted this, I feel it is worth repeating, to explain my next post concerning my current status.

I feel like a pendulentΒ 4 year old. I want a Oompa Loompa!

Remember Willy Wonka, the “real” original Willy Wonka? Don’t get your panties in a ruffle J.D. fans. I love Johnny Depp too, who wouldn’t? But I think we all know that there was only one Willy Wonka, and we all know who he is. don’t we?

In the movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory there was one particularity lovely child, you might recall, the adored Varuca Salt.To refresh your memory here are a few classic Vurcua quotes.

Veruca Salt: Hey, Daddy, “I want a Oompa Loompa! I want you to get me a Oompa Loompa right away!

Mr. Salt: All right, Veruca, all right. I’ll get you one before the day is out.

Veruca Salt: [whining] “I want an Oompa Loompa now!”

Veruca Salt: [singing] I want a party with roomfuls of laughter, Ten thousand tons of ice cream. And if I don’t get the things I am after, I’m going to screeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEAM.

Veruca Salt: I want it now! What’s the matter with those twerps down there?

Veruca knew what she wanted and she wanted it NOW!!Β  I have to tell you I’ve felt a little Veruca-ish lately.

I’ve talked about that doggone website for so long, have worked on it using the simplest of methods, a template website builder. The advert says that anyone can build their own website in a single afternoon, they are not referring to just knowledgeable people, they say anyone.
I ‘m a anyone, l’m so positive that I have my goal within my sights. I announce it will launch any day, as I’ve done for the last zillionth times.

I’ve been working on mine for at least 3 months.

This is embarrassing, It has now escalated to humiliating.If I just kept my mouth shut, no one would remember my confident statement that crashed and burned. They’ll forget.

What catches me every time is that familiar question asked when you open your Face Book page, Update Status-What’s On Your Mind?”

“What’s on my mind?”Β  Facebook asks”Β  “What’s on my mind?” One seemingly unreachable thing. Being the unrestrained blabber mouth it seems that I am, naturally I mention it once again, for the zillionth and 1st time. Shove over Varuca, I want it and I want it NOW!!!!

Will it ever happen?

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. by my teens I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was completely out of place, I tried to go unnoticed, a mute fly on the wall, with a big smile pasted on my face. I've continued to paint most of my life. After a move to Oregon years later, I was introduced to quilting and fell in love. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. There are often many changes and adjustments along the way. The result can often be surprizing. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction. I love that element of surprize! Sometimes I have one that I especially like, I can't wait to show someone. At that moment l feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had some of my work published in several magazines. which is exciting. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.
