I wanted to take this time to let you know what I've been up to. Since I lost my job in January I have been spending more time in my studio. I have set my intention to learn as much as I can in order to feel more confident to teach others. I have been painting up a storm and learning many new techniques. Unfortunately, I can not show you those pieces because I have been submitting to magazines. When you do that they request that you do not post on the Internet. Show and tell will have to wait for another day. :-(
I have 2 new artsy friends that I met at an art class and I've been sharing painting time with them. Carol, and I have consistently been getting together at least once a week to create. My desire is to surround myself with like minded people. After working in an office all by myself for 14 years I am thirsty to be around uplifting and inspiring people. This leads me to my 2nd intention - I am developing an artist community to surround myself with. I want to strengthen my friendship with my artist friends I already have. When you ladies read this call me and let's create something fun together. Linda Kinnman let's learn about ice resin since we already have all the stuff. Linda Barutha wanna finish the joint compound piece you started? Kelly Hoernig I just love hanging out with you and always learn so much.
In December I showed you the 7x12 sheets I had completed. Each one begins as left over paint from my brushes, tray, or whatever. I just put the paint down on the art paper then finish it later. I create art with abandon~I just paint without concern about the outcome. I am gathering so many of these pages I decided to make a binder to put them in. The first photo is the front of my journal. Fun-Fun-Fun!
What have you been up to?
Thanks for stopping by.
