Zen Collage
We had a lovely weekend in Maine over the fourth of July. It was really windy on the lake but we did eat lots of our favorite foods including lobster, lobster and lobster......

I came home inspired as I usually do when I go away. I have been painting a lot using a printing brayer. I love how you never know what you are going to get but you can pretty much guarantee an interesting mark making session. I think the pieces on either side of this collage look like mountains. I could not paint that if I tried but the brayer gives it to you and then some!

I have also been binge watching Jane Davies videos! I swear that woman is the most generous artist with her art tutorials. I always learn something new no matter how many times I watch them. I found one I hadn't seen before on making a batch of celadon. These two below are samples of my celadon experiments:

Just wanted to join in with all the above comments. Your sense of design and color are stupendous! Very Zen-like.
