Finally I am back in my studio! Hooray! It has been many, many, months. I am still sharing my studio with the workmen as they need someplace to park all their tools but at least I have my new closet and a corner to work in and set up my scanner.

I decided to take a couple of classes in order to get me moving in a direction again. When I am away from my art for such a long period of time I have trouble getting going again. The only thing I can be sure of is that I will be going in a different direction than the one I last ended on. It is just the way I am.

The first class I am taking is a collage class with Randal Plowman. He has a great following and I already have his book so I feel like this will be a good start for me. And I love collage and I still have a ton of old gelatin prints I can use as collage fodder.

I have also signed up for a painting class with Este Macleod which will begin in October. So I think that between the two classes I will have the opportunity to gather new ideas and get moving again.

The second lesson of the class with Randall was to make a series of collages using just one color.  The two pieces above are from that lesson.

Have a lovely long weekend everyone!

Glad you have some space to at least do a little art work! Must be class time!! I decided to take a class from Val Webb again...I took her lettering class back in 2013 but this time it's to learn to draw...well, at least to learn what it is I need to see to be able to draw! I want to have my own work in my art quilts vs copying a picture or tracing something I saw in a Dover book. I actually drawn 2 moths and a butterfly! woo hoo! I envy folks who can draw..I'm always amazed at an artist's work...your work has always drawn me's mom doing????
