Funky and Proud

Just wanted to say a big thanks to all who responded to the last post. You are all so smart and insightful. I think after much thought and several good conversations with my friends, I feel better about this whole idea. My conclusion, I do many different things that fall under the "mixed media" category...even the jewelry. I have this never ending curiosity and desire to learn new techniques. Whatever I am working on at the moment is satisfying my creative cravings...if not, I don't do it. If I don't enjoy something....I don't do it. It is that simple.

The "Funky Art Queen" thing? It occured to me that the people that would be put off by my d.b.a. would be those that most likely would not be drawn to my art in the first place. Thanks again. I just love every one of you. Next blog......not all about me I promise. HUGS

Continue to do "you"! Your dba is just an extention of your creativity. You are so right in that those that are put off by your name probably wouldn't buy from you anyway. Stay true!:)

Well here I am a day late and always a dollar short but I do have two cents worth...
First, I came a knockin because of your name. I thought it sounded interesting and it didn't disappoint. As you know I love your work. Now for the should I focas....having heard that about a million times from my ever so thoughtful friends that hang out on their left side of the brain it probably makes sense to them. Don't confuse the audience mentality. Those of us that are mostly in the right. The more diverse the better...we have to find our ever evolving artistic voice. I guess that's why most of us stay starving but alive! OK, I had high expectations...it's only one cent worth! :)

There is only ONE Lesley Noreen, and no point whatsoever in being plain ol' Jane Doe. Back from Abilene, and know where you are right now. You should be so proud, FAQ, and I know you are. Much love to my loving little friend from your Prairie Fairy.

girl_gone_thread_wild said...

Hey I love your dba name! It suits you sew well and who cares what those other peop's think!
Try using "girl gone thread wild" and seeing some folks type just girl gone wild...LOL makes me laugh, I am soooo not the gal who flips up her shirt at rock concerts or to get free beads. !!!!

Art on! Live life beautifully! And don't worry so much about what they think, they aren't the ones paying your bills or named "Funky Art Queen" you are! YOU ARE the funky art queen. Live it.

XO, Monica :)
