MOVING ALONG



Bits and pieces

The cleaning and clearing has gone so well that, with trash cans and recycle bins all full to the brim, I thought to play with some ideas for the collage workshop I am teaching next Sunday.

First try

Not really happy with this first try, I moved on to the next possibility...

A little more sassy?

Not sure yet this is it, but will keep playing.  To see the finished product and to play with ideas yourself, why not come to the workshop, or as I call it the Playshop, on Sunday? It is from 11 to 4 and all materials are provided for $65.

I KNOW...WHAT??

Only the beginning
Yeah, yeah, I know...it's finally raining outside and it's the dead of winter and...why have I zealously begun spring cleaning? I can hardly move around my office at this point and it seems to be only the beginning as each move creates more moves and more mess. 
No resolution sparked this; it just showed up with this morning's rain. Why? Who knows. But now I am in full throttle on this.
Lots of art fodder will either go in the trash or, if you have need of specifics please let me know and I can set aside for you.
This is crazy, but back to it!!! Inspiration awaits at the bottom of all these piles I am sure.

STEPPING OUT OF THE BOX

Angel page and wishes
Sometimes it is good to step out of your own box and be a learner. So I said "yes" to a four-week mixed media journaling class with the wonderful, prolific artist Jacki Long.
Let me start by saying just how far outside my box this really is...I do not like to do my work in a journal where it becomes locked into the pages for all time. Just not my style. That said, I'm in for whatever shows up in this four weeks. So far I was able to stay focused and just play with it, which had been my hope. 
I did this for the fun and the freeing aspect and found that worked in the first session. Stay tuned. I will keep you posted on how this goes. There is nothing to lose...except "shoulds" and rules and the like :)
