Spring Is Here – Right Here in the Studio
When it’s seed starting time, my studio has to make room for my seeds. In the past, I’ve had them spread out on a table, not leaving much room for art. But now I have this really cute little greenhouse, which sits in the morning sun in the window, and then on days that are warm enough I take it out to the screened porch for some more direct, though filtered sun.
Looking around the studio, it’s easy to see I still have a lot of tables up from when we had classes. I may just leave them, if I can discipline myself not to clutter them all. It is nice to have plenty of room to lay out whatever I’m working on.
One More New Collage
When I want a collage that spills over the edges of the picture plane, I always have to consider the backing on which it’s mounted. Or the other way around. In this case I had a sample piece of very nice Strathmore paper and began with the collage rather spontaneously and randomly. The color of the backing becomes part of the design when done this way.
