I've been doing my dailies; now I'm aiming for 100. Here are a few I've recently finished...
And I started an on-line black and white workshop with Jane Davies. Here are a few collages from the first lesson...
Making art and enjoying the water … that's our week. This year I'm only enjoying looking at it. Good swims the first couple days but then I injured my big toe and have to stay our of the water. That's what I get for not paying attention. Slipped on a slippery step coming out of the lake. Oh well, lesson learned and I can still enjoy looking at the water, listening to it lapping on the shore and hearing the loons that come to our bay to visit. Life is good.

I have managed to take 6 huge bags of trash to the curb in the past few weeks. That's progress!
For this first lesson we painted several sheets of drawing paper black, then more sheets painted varying shades of grey. I did all right with the black, fairly simple. But the varying shades of grey were suppose to be solid grey, not variations within each grey. That is not as easy as one would think. Practice. My reading this morning from Julia Cameron basically said if you want to be good at something you have to be willing to be bad at it first. So.... here are my greys and three black and white collages made with the black painted paper collaged on to printmaking paper.
