I LOVE words! As a child I was called alternately both a book-worm and a chatter box. I come by it naturally, my grandfather was quite a wordsmith, and we would play the dictionary game after his sermons, racing to his office to look up the words whose meanings we didn’t know. I still love to play the dictionary game, sometimes spending hours skipping from one word to another in the dictionary, fascinated not only by the meaning but the etymology.
So when challenged recently to identify the thread running through all of my artwork in four words I was intrigued. And as I began to identify my four words I realized that the words I picked describe my creation process, not necessarily the experience of the viewer. Often we need the mirror of another to really understand our own artwork so I queried some friends. The words I received are fascinating and have lead to a great round of the dictionary game. (I am publishing the words as I received them from my friends, repeated words were on multiple lists.)
Which words on this list resonate with you or what words would you add?
