Cloud’s illusions I recall….
(From Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell)
Small acrylic on paper from a wonderful class I took today at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Taking these classes is like meeting an old friend again from a very long time ago. Soon I’ll have time to be with “her” every day if I want to.
This beautiful postcard from Kat Sloma is the last one from the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap for 2015. What a lovely finale! The Postcard Swap (according to Kat’s blog) involved 1290 pieces of art liberated, from 214 artists, from 12 countries! Here’s a wonderful video from Kat’s blog that shows many of the incredible postcards.
I carved out a little time to work in my journal this weekend. With school drawing to a close and celebrations beginning for my retirement I’m finding it harder to focus. But it’s all good! This is a failed image transfer using my ink jet printer and hairspray (!) but I glued the failure in my journal and just kept going. I used gesso, some neocolors, a rubber stamp, and some bits of French ephemera. I’m learning to just work without judging the results–a very new concept for me. I’m finding it liberating, to say the least.
