Gesso Book


Yesterday I was working in my gesso book...... an old Gregg Shorthand book.
These pages are mostly inspired by the Misty Mawn class... Full Circle Workshop.
But I find that I use this book for all my classes to a degree.



Need to do the cover....



So............. this is to say that I am doing a few things..... but mostly just my art journals.... which
is what I consider this book to be.

Spring is Arriving



The time change, the rain, the arrival of oak and pine pollen.....
it all adds up to the promise of spring around the corner!

Hope you are seeing the same!

Those round face waifs I love...



I'm taking "Permission to Play" by Mindy Lacefield.

You can visit her blog Tim's Sally.

This was a journal spread we did...
I need to add some words....
but that may not happen for a few days 
and my blog was feeling very abandoned!!!

A New Book


I don't know where I got this image. If you know, please tell me and I will give credit.

January is like a new book, isn't it!?
I've just disappeared and I think it's because (okay, I KNOW) I'm trying to
figure out what I'm doing art wise these days and if I really want to keep blogging.
I'm not blogging enough really to even consider it as something I do!

I always read in January. 

I started How to Breathe Underwater by Julie Orringer
(I look at college freshmen reading lists)

 A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith 
(I try to read the classics occasionally)

 and
 A Tide Too High by my QB5 friend Carole Brungar.

Those are JUST the fiction books I'm reading.

I'm also trying to decide what I want to do this year "art-wise".

I did an incredible class by Misty Mawn last year (Full Circle) that was my most favorite ever!

And I did some Mary Ann Moss classes and some Christy Tomlinson/Junelle Jacobson.

I've been obsessed with Mindy Lacefield's art for months now!!!

And I think I'm going to sign up for her new class...
it's a year long....
  Permission to Play.

It starts the first of February and it will be up online forever....
so you can take the rest of your life to do it! (me)

Are you taking any classes or reading any books?
