the answer is yes!
i am still painting teabags and
finding them a source of
inspiration and just plain fun.
here this week's collage
selection in my little journal.
when i say little, i mean
it fits in my palm. i added a
few lines with a micron pen.
i experimented with a different
brush stroke in my painting workshop.
it took focus to try a new technique for a whole painting.
this is acrylic over collage. i plan to do a series
using this brush stroke to get more familiar with its nature.
i am not sure that i can explain it but i will try. several colors of
acrylic paint is put on a palette. swipe one side of a brush and
then the other. apply the paint to the canvas in the same swipe technique
using both sides of the brush.
when i walked outside to the large patio of the art center
for a break from my workshop i happened upon
the end of a marvelous demo. the artist, Peter Adams,
was commissioned to paint the stations of the cross for the
University of Southern California.
here is are some example of
the studies he did for the commission.
i thought them to be exceptional.
also this weeki attend the stamp convention
held three times a year in carson.
kat skamoto is the organizer.
she was so thrilled that she found new
kuretake markers with brilliant colors
and that layer easily. she had pages
of beautiful drawings in her journal.
among the vendors i saw the
creative drawings by tracy moore.
and colorful collages by
there was a time when i would always be seen
carrying a camera on my shoulder or on my wrist.
i took soccer and football photos for the team members when my son
was in high s cool. but i have gotten lazy. my iPhone has replaced
the camera. sometimes i am surprise
by what i capture. this week it was the supermoon
with an enormous whale mural in the foreground
at the redondo beach marina.
and of course, my daily sunset snap.
have a lovely weekend wherever you are.
hugs to all.
