Today’s Studio Update
This is a new collage using random pieces from my huge pile of collage papers. I’m enjoying working this way. When I trim or tear a piece of paper to make it fit the composition I’m working on, I just toss the remainder back in the pile. You wouldn’t believe it if you could see how tiny many of my saved pieces are. But if you do that, you’ll find some really interesting snippets.
And the following two are just ones that I haven’t shown in this blog before. They are in my Etsy shop (I think!)
I’m still working/playing very hard at learning not just Corel Painter, but have finally decided to teach myself a whole bunch more about Adobe Illustrator. Things are going well with both. If you have any inclination to learn a new art form, I highly recommend both programs. There are so many free tutorials (some good and others not so good.) If I ever decide I can afford it, I’ll also subscribe to Lynda.com. Excellent digital art training.
In between all that excitement, I take garden breaks. The garden is still going crazy. We are loaded with tomatoes, some of them huge, and only a few are ripe yet. And I failed to mention before that we have a little melon patch. We have both watermelons and cantaloupes. It was just kind of an afterthought and I planted them in a back corner of the yard. I didn’t really expect to get much out of them, but looks like we are going to have success. Here is one of the watermelons, already about 3/4 of the way.
I hope you’re planning a great weekend. I’m hoping mine will be slow and uneventful.
