Getting Back Into the Rhythm
“Peek” – Collage, 4×6″ on a 5×7″ backing.
I’ve been slowly getting back into the rhythm of the studio, and have begun to realize what a refuge and a retreat it is. How I’ve allowed myself to become so sidetracked is a bit of a mystery. Chalk it up to a long and seductive spring, with its incessant call to be outdoors. But I have to confess there’s nothing quite like art making for lifting the general mood.
Even though it’s very much a part of our house, the studio is off to itself and isolated. Once I’m there, and the cat and dogs are settled into their favorite resting places around the room, in our own little world with music playing in the background, the magic starts to happen.
After working on some new pieces for the gallery in Florida over the past few days, I took a little time to indulge in some collage play. I didn’t realize how much I missed my papers and glue.
