Tuesday's Tidbits 
Abstract Mixed Media Collage 
December 4th 2018
Newsletter header
Tuesday's Tidbits is a Newsletter sharing available classes, workshops, events and collage art to help build your collection.  I've been working in the medium of collage and mixed media 23 years, can't believe it. And sharing my paper nuggets and crumpled wisdom through gatherings, instructional settings, retreats and circles of friends now for 21 years. A long time some would say. All I know is that I'm grateful that I've been able to work at what I love to do. 

The art medium of "collage" has its beginnings from the French word, "coller" which means to glue.  Paper was and still is readily available to us all, it's a great source of material to glue to many surfaces. 

Making collage papers from found paper is called, re-purposing  and it's ever changing in it's process and enjoyment for most collage artists. As you might have witness in my own artwork over the years. From a torn edge or cut edge,  I've always been at the papers mercy.   Being a creative maker all my life has been a combination of inner and outer understandings expressed in hopes of the compassion of others feelings, the wordless visual drama around us all.  I've been very fortunate to have had parents, teachers, loved one to encourage this continual crazy combination of self-expression. When people ask what is your "Goal or Dream," I only have this one, to be a elder and preparing to drop off a piece of artwork somewhere for a up coming exhibition.

Sporting a different Hair style, down and like a "Wild Woman." (feels so good)
From the Studio
Switching things up a bit, took my walk this morning and then the dogs...I know crazy...I have an senior Great Dane, arthritis but still need exercise. And young girl, Lab/bloodhound that hurt her knee, walking restriction/therapy. I like to walk longer, grab my yellow safety vest and flash light for the neighborhood walk about. This morning I felt blessed to see two Great Horned Owls. What site and feeling to be out before the dawn of light happens an see this pair.
After every one is watered and feed, I now sit down at the keyboard of my laptop and write this out. 
They-researcher share that going the blue screen will have you depressed by noon.  Can't have that happening. No blue screen for the first hour you wake up.
There's a new year musing idea for us all.
I have a collections of classes lined up for the new year and one of my favorites is the Vision Board...I'm getting excited about it already, thinking about my word for the year and areas of grow and change. 

Let us remember as we are out and about, the season is patience and acceptance, and though in a smile for good measures.

From myheart Heart  and with gratitude in single feather - Copy Spirit 
  thank you for all your support through the years.


Tack Down Tuesday 
           Risky side          Riskysm

#120318-A, "Risky " 6 x 12 piece of collage art on wood panel, ready to hang on your wall or makes a perfect gift. 

Materials Used: Wood panel, gloss medium, gesso and acrylic painted grocery bags, painted drawing paper, image transfers, carpet tacks, black book thread, acrylic glazing, wax pastel crayons, sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: In discussion today with my artist way class, the subject of risk and accomplishments came up along with a few other topics, like fear and what’s the payoff when one stays a victim? A great story was told about Mrs. Cicero, which…was a great reminder to keep moving in your life and forward at that…much like a shark does or it dies.  I also saw a picture of Richard Diebenkorns work on social media and just had to share that influence in my work today.
