Welcome to the worldly adventures of SEVEN

SEVEN is a collective of multi-disciplined artists from rural Nova Scotia. Collaboration is the foundation for creativity, where each artist responds artistically in her own medium to a selected theme. Through collective discourse, various elements combine to form a much richer body of thought - adding new and perhaps unforeseen levels of creativity and interpretation.

Rurally routed to their tidal landscape, SEVEN knows, what goes out, does come in.

and Tracy makes SEVEN...

Sometimes life can really throw a curve ball at us and when one really whops us in the side of the head, the simple pleasure of pointless creative fun with a group of like-minded individuals can be all that can be done to ease the goose-egg.  There's a comfort in keeping a commitment to meet and connect month after month, even though we all lead quite diverse lives and may not even communicate with one another all the days in between.

Thursday evening at Pam's house with our brand new member, Tracy Horsmen was one of those meetings that could sooth boo-boos and simply feel good to just be together with no purpose intended other than creative play. Like musical chairs (with laughter and chit chat instead of music) we each rotated around seven old windows, spending 10 minutes at abstract mark and colour making before moving on to the next.  Of course, some paintings worked out better than others, but so what, that wasn't the point.

I like how this one's coming along

A little dab here...

...a little flick here...

 ... brush strokes...

...and dribbles

So Tracy, tell us about yourself!

In our next post, Tracy will answer a few questions for us so we can get to know her.  Mine first - Tracy, your medium is clay and I want to know why clay?  How did you discover it and what does it do for you?

Sending Sunday sunshine happiness to one and all,
