Dream Time

Sandra and I have started our second book (on surfaces) with the assistance of Bonnie Teitlebaum and we are in Dream Time. It is like being in an creative think tank. Its not just creating different surfaces but pushing the techniques to new levels. It has been a series of OH WOWs. It is amazing how one forgets how much work it is to write a book. The first book we had so much more time but we have a much faster turn around on this one. Whew.

This piece, After Raphael, was just for fun, painting on plexiglas and texturing an old book page.

Fall is in the Air

Fall means that winter, my least favorite season, is nearby. So as the days get shorter, my life has gotten busier with teaching (and its prep time), the book which requires a lot of studio time, painting for myself, doing my web work and time for dogs and husband. Makes me want to go back to sleep.

Periodically I like to do a mixed media sculpture. I used to do more. It's fun to switch back and forth from 2D to 3D.

Scrapbooking, kind of

Using part of the same old scrapbook that I had used as the base for the art in the previous post, I used this page as a more visible piece of the art. I like the idea of having a very flat area on the bottom and the highly painted top region.

Not much to say, would rather paint today.
