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 pendulent 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!!  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?”  Facebook asks”  “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 To My Art About Myself & My Approach To My Art I can't remember a time in life, that art didn't play a role, in one form or another. But my primary focus as an artist, has been painting. Close to 20 years ago, I was introduced to quilting & quickly became passionate about it. However to create a quilt there are some necessary steps that have to be followed, this obviously restricts some of the creative choices. I began to miss the creative freedom possible with painting. Since there are only so many hours in a day and I had other important things going on in my life, I had to focus my interests. When I discovered mixed media art quilting, it was a great fit. The combination of quilting techniques with painting and other art skills opened new creative directions to explore. I was home! It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges. Then I follow where it leads. My approach is more of an instinctual one. I usually don't do much pre-planning. My creative choices are made as they present themselves, based on my gut feeling. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think that this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I 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. Personal Links
