10/18/2017 - Back To Work

Time to cut up the printed papers and create fun Cityscapes! Lots of squares, rectangles & triangles.  Amazing art all around the table.  Next week they will build up the compositions with other layers. I will take photos of their incredible creations and post next week!


10/14/2017 - Arrive home at 7:00PM from "Vacation"

Wonderful scenery, fishing villages, pumpkin patches, creative scarecrows adorned one of the villages.  I felt as though we were back in time, the 50’s , with a simpler way of life! Collected lots of colored maple leaves to press for other art projects.

My husband is a photographer so we ended up driving a total of 1900 plus miles 8 days, to find the perfect shot!  I’ll have him upload a photo or two!

Next trip, a CRUISE SHIP, thank you very much!!!

Began my PAPERBILITIES 5 week session at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, CT.


Today was devoted to create a personal paper inventory. A palette of 3-4 fluid acrylic colors. using gel plates, brayers, marking tools, stencils so each student could let loose their child-like imagination.

Great to see everyone smiling & sharing their “Happy Accident” techniques!

The theme will be a multi-layered CITYSCAPE, so they will go online & google cityscape art in collage & PINTEREST to give them visual ideas.

Next week they will continue embellishing their paper inventory with stamping, gesso raised stencils, resist techniques.

We will discuss the composition of CITYSCAPE, horizontal, vertical, and prepare substrate with gesso. I have given them choices of Arches rough 300lb. paper, wood panel, stretched canvas & size no larger in height & width of 24 inches.

Yours in Art,
