My schedule has been so free recently I’ve actually had time to post my monthly newsletter to WordPress in advance. Enjoy the fun I had with this scammer!
Every day you get a chance to start over….
I just wondered whether I’ve now written more haiku than sonnets….
This is on one of the panels I cut when at my friend John Weidenhamer’s place (he has a great workshop) from some upcycled kitchen panels.
This painting was done in a different way than the majority of my mixed media pieces. Although I had the two (yes, just two) pieces leftover from a cut, it was enough. Then I cut the panel specifically to fit the art I was going to make (usually the panel is a separate inspiration), and then I painted the underlying acrylic first – to work with the clouds cut-out before I put the watercolor part on. Then the poetry.
It’s easier to figure out what it looks like when you can see it on a wall.
This is the last of a series of collages available in mats.
Yes, it is possible to sell art during the pandemic. A major collector saw one of my ‘Newer Work’ posts and decided to treat herself. I’m not only blessed with the sale, but also the pic of the painting in its new Forever Home. Although she says she might move things around.
Sometimes you just gotta love something….enough to let it show.
Seeing as we’re all sitting around these days, we might as well see what shapes the clouds make.
Pretty apropos of the current situation.
Here’s April’s monthly newsletter. Despite the fact that all shows and classes are cancelled there’s always something to do around the studio! More spider tomorrow!!!
