I am enjoying working on collages. With some I have an idea in the beginning stages and others seem to create themselves. It's really a lot of fun! This piece is included in the show at the Fort Worth Library.
Still having fun with shapes. With this project I worked on a 12 x 8 sheet of paper and when complete I divided it into four 6 x 4 pieces to use as postcards. I would love to get art in the mail! Wouldn't you?
I've been playing with shapes with the help of Abstract Painting The Elements of Visual Language by Jane Davies. She offers information on line, shape, mass, pattern, texture and depth with exercises on each subject. I'm having a great time while learning.

This was really fun to paint using palette knives. I've been taking an online workshop from Mary Bentz Gilkerson and learning how to use knives and new ways to interpret the landscape. She is a wonderful teacher and I recommend her workshops.
