Collage trio

I’ve been working on a collage mixed media painting on canvas this week. I like many elements of the painting, but it is not a resolved or cohesive piece. So, for now I’ve decided to take the parts that I like and play with them on smaller panels. Here are some 5 x 5 panels […]

Playing around

This week I’ve been playing around with an old drawing that I have. A couple of years ago I did a drawing of an African lady in pencil. I then made several photo copies of it. I pulled them out over the weekend and began to play—changing colors and patterns to see how the drawing […]

July business goals
