From the Studio
Here in Northern IL, we have had an abundance of rain and now the effects of that, is green, green and more green.  The Garden is amazing and lush.  

I have to admit coming back from WI after the Workshop at Dillman's was awesome but it didn't hit me physical till yesterday afternoon. Time to replenish the Well, with rest and a bit of solitude. Everything is good it's just knowing the body and listening with self care. 

Next Class this Summer is Abstract Mini Landscapes...scroll down for more info.

Quote for the Week
Remember, it is the job of the artist to create new culture, not simply to regurgitate what exists.


Red Roof Village

#061118-A, "Red Roof Village" 8 x 8 piece of collage art with a 2” white mat to the final size of 12 x 12 ready for you to slide into a nice 12 x 12 frame.  


Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, gloss medium, acrylics, painted drawing paper, gesso and painted Kraft paper, graphite crayon and a layer of UV satin varnish.


Meaning behind the art: This week after getting back from my workshop, I had to get back into the home life and well one of the ways is to create in the studio. But when I got up there….my creative juices had fizzled. I wanted to create a piece despite my low energy and what happened is so very basic I thought…well I did something and this will get me to the next one.  Sometimes creating something isn’t what you might have wanted but its still important to do it as it could be the half step you need to make it the full step.  Still exploring the house/ home theme as much as I can.
