Taking a Fun Break

February 19, 2013

The studio has been very busy, shifting gears between a working art studio and a classroom. Most of the time when I need to work out there, I just use one of the class tables and clean up once a week when my students are due to arrive. That is the case this afternoon, as I get ready for tonight’s class. A couple of the students have warned me that I am not going to be able to stop classes after 8 weeks. It’s their clear intention to keep going.

Today I was in a silly mood, so I downloaded a nifty program that I saw on Cath Sheard’s blog, called ShapeCollage. It’s free and easy to download and use. You can add as many photos as you like to create a collage/montage, and then choose the shape you want it to be. Great fun — and the perfect diversion for someone who’s avoiding work at the moment, Cath!

Here’s my collage from some of my small works, and I chose a circle.

Still enjoying my new ACEOs/Art Cards. Today I sent out one that has already sold. You can see them all here.

What’s happening in your world? Are you taking some time out for fun?

      Brenda, I get such a shot of energy when I’m in the studio. It’s wonderful just to hang out there.

    Having fun for sure….in the Mayan,….sunning, painting, producing crap and some quality work but on a holiday and that is the main focus….everything else is gravy.

    There’ s something quite magical about seeing art grouped – love it. And thanks for the mention. Hugs cross the oceans….
