On the Road Again

Well, it’s that time of year again… time to start packing for Art & Soul.

Step 1 is unpacking from last year’s Art & Soul. Check. That was today’s activity.The gathering of art supplies begins in earnest tomorrow.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Oh! And I should really be getting my trades together as well…

So much art, so little time!


Loving the art thing!

The workshop I was taking with Misty Mawn is officially over, but I’m still working through all of the assignments. So much content to process!

Over the course of the last 5 weeks, I’ve learned spiffy new ways to play with my photos, made & inked my first sculpture, written poems – even a sonnet – baked a divine flourless chocolate cake, created my own handmade artist journal, practiced portrait drawing, and finally finished a mixed media painting that I really like… and I’ve really only scratched the surface. Not too shabby to start off the year. Yay me… and a giant thank you to Misty!
