Trying to do better about posting

 Well the plan is to do better about posting.  The year is off to a busy start.  I'm taking a 6 week pottery class and doing some on-line classes.  Hopefully that keeps me out of trouble?!?  I'm currently working on a class with Carla Sonheim entitled "Year of the Rabbit".

I've been having fun sketching rabbits.

Yesterday I printed some colorful pages using my Gel Printing Plate.  I totally got lost in the process.  Many hours later, when my neck started to hurt I realized how long I had been at it.  All part of the process.

Another year gone by

This is something I've been working on for a while.  This is a "Year Long Class with Carla Sonheim".  I started late.  Middle of the year, I think?!?  The class has 12 lessons and zoom lessons.  

Take what you want from each lesson and put it on the map.  The map measure 30" X 22", the map was divided into 12 squared using water color and letting the water color run and determine the size and shape.  I have had so much fun with this.  

Working on one section at a time.  Plus you can fold it up.

I think I will do another for 2023.  It's a big or small project.  It's all in how you look at it.  I work on it whenever I have time.

Mixed Media Collage Fun

OMG!  I really had fun with this one.  And like anything, things always look easier then they really are.  I lost count on how many hours I spent trying to get this to my liking.  I'm my worst critic.  In the end I loved it so much that I framed it and hung it in my Studio.

Here's another mixed media piece.  Using Old art or scrap art, cutting the paper down to size and then adding my art.  This is a fun process, because you're not starting with a blank page.

Mixed Media Page

This is one of the pages in an old book.  I'm glueing pages together and then adding my own twist.  This page is a mixed media page. Using a magazine cut out, acrylic paint, black gesso and Gel Roller.

Next post about my summer

So this is a mixed media collage.  Instead of throwing away practice art bits, I cut them down and turn them into something else.  Here is an example of one.
