Cutting and Pasting

The studio  has been cleaned and rearranged for maximum
creative output. I hope. It sure looks better and I can walk
around without getting bruised by something. More shelves
are up and it's easier to access all my collections (junk).
Pictures will be posted when it looks like I want it to look.
I did make great curtains out of old linens that I love.

My painting style is changing and making me uncomfortable.
I don't even want to talk about that until I can figure out where
 me, my paintbrushes, gel mediums and graphite are going.
Right now the combination just makes me unhappy.

The junk collections never fail to inspire me. I got a pile of new
frames from the ever-inventive Philip. They begged to
have some paper and pictures laid down on them to tell a story.
The stories pour out with no fuss. I love how they
pass thru me onto the surface.

This is " All You Need Is Love" - above and detail below.
 A yummy vintage lime green bookcover, map,
 printer's type and a picture to warm or break your heart.
 Not sure.

I'm signed up for two workshops this week. I am
so excited. I've wanted to learn about encaustic for
years. And a Golden Artists Colors Workshop on
using their different mediums. This will either open
the gates of painting again or make me crazy.
I'll let you know.
At the very least, I think the workshops will be perfect
for some inspiring Instagram moments.


  1. "walking around without getting bruised on something"... I can sure relate to those words. Right now my body is looking like I was in some sort of car accident.
    Your painting style changing sounds like a break through of sorts - exciting!
    I spent the weekend painting dresses! Yep... I don't know WHAT that means or where I am going... But I did have fun departing from cows an chickens.

    1. Will the dresses debut at Wesleyan? Can't wait to see them. My subject matter isn't changing but I think my style might be... we'll see!

  2. You are an artist I have always admired and stalked. I will continue to do both.
