Wilson, Charlene

Charlene is originally from Southern California & now resides in Gig Harbor.  I’m learning to take a chance and explore art once again.  My 30 year career of working in surgery left me so stressed & afraid of making an error.  So now, that is why art is so liberating.  It’s ok to make a mistake, in fact sometimes it’s a benefit!  I enjoy crocheting, mosaic, painting & refinishing furniture and gardening.  I love living in a small community that helps its neighbors and finding that it is an honor to serve one another.

You’re built like a car, you’ve got a hub cap diamond star halo
You’re built like a car, oh yeah
You’re an untamed youth that’s the truth with your cloak full of eagles
You’re dirty sweet and you’re my girl…
(T.Rex, and then Power Station) depending on your generation

She has a prickly personality – a little dainty, but also seductive, curvaceous – think Corvette Stingray circa 1969. When I look at the curve of her back I expect something will burst out - like antlers; as in mule deer, or mechanical and H.R. Giger – like Alien, or angel wings – like Victoria’s Secret and definitely not cherub wings like Leonardo. One thing is for certain; she just needed hands

 

 “Alice Doesn’t Sit Here Anymore”

 “Alice, be free!”  Exploring different expressions with the aid of artwork is liberating for me.  Accepting imperfections in the design work is difficult, as I wanted to straighten every line and perfect all flaws, but my greatest life lessons were often the result of errors.  Mid-way through this project I was nearly ready to quit. It wasn’t until I made a mistake with a brush, having two different colors of paint on the bristles, that I found a turning point in the creative process. A happy accident.  Suddenly I was in the creative flow.  I was reminded of “Alice in Wonderland” colorful imagery, and if ever had a moving sale, a chair such as this might be available.
