Collages

I don't spend as much time as I'd like in my art studio but snagged some time Saturday with one of my besties.

Played with a simple monotype abstract,



And started a mixed media piece,










and when stuck, started making small 5x7 collages with deli paper monotypes. I'm still trying to decide if I want to add a word to each. Hm...

Trying new things...

Last month I read an article on Artists Network by Tonia Jenny on making cool bowls with paper clay. About once a month I have an art play date with my friend Ann and last month we made the bowls but we had to let them are dry for over a week so today we finished painting them. Had a bit of trial and error with the colors but I like the end results.

Art play time...

So you know when you keep playing and making gel prints and start running out of places to stash them all? Means it's time to start collaging to use some up.

Here is one collage that also included some magazine paper and a bit of a cardboard coffee sleeve.



And here is one that is mostly gel prints on various papers including deli paper and then some snippets of paper I made with string and craft tissue.


Haven't figured out what to name them yet.

First art show of the year

So, this is my first blog post of the year and hopefully I will do much better than I did last year.

I'm super excited that I've been accepted to the Tannery Row juried art show.  This is only my second show and I'm going to try to put myself out there more this year.

I hope those of you who are local will join me at the opening ceremony on March 4th.  Details below.
