Here is a pic of what i put on yesterdays canvas. She isnt completely done yet but its getting about there.
The trick for me is knowing when to stop. I am about to the yellow light but dont see the red yet!! Have a good day and make time to make art.
Sorry haven’t posted before today this week. I am getting ready for a upcoming show as well as a trip or two and painting my barn and it is Mr. Inky’s last week at his job here….. you get the idea.
So here is a look at a project I am working on.
I will add things to the collage like faces and words and thoughts.
Speaking of thoughts — here is one. It doesn’t have to be perfect to make us perfectly happy. I am far from a great artist but I enjoy the process of creating and what it fixes inside of me and what it allows me to feel and try. Maybe you will too.

Okay so now that I am obsessed with Collage and Mermaids I am learning several interesting things — and knowing that you are sitting on the edge of your couches munching away on your graham crackers and reading this — here is the tip:
Glossy pics from a magazine work wayyyyyyyy better than the flat/matte surface pages when you are cutting out elements to use in collage. The matte/flat pages of some of the most popular art magazines right now just soak up the adhesive or the medium that I use but the glossy covered pics are much better at letting me fuss with them.
I was surprised that I can buy some of the fashion model magazines that are about and inch thick for about $6. I have been hacking away at this thing and am quickly getting a big pile of faces and textures and lettering that I can use.
Check in later this week to see another mermaid.
Be art-venturous today and embrace something new!
