What Will This Be?



Today is Dec 1, and I am working on a large commissioned piece of artwork for a local Bed and Breakfast Inn. Here is a picture of a portion of it in progress. Can you guess what it will be? Add your guesses to the comment section? Who will be right? Stay tuned to this BLOG to see how it progresses, and to see the final piece. Watch my collage artwork painting develop before your very eyes. Have a great day.

Today is Wed November 29th, and I have been working in my studio all day. It is a great art day, lighting from outside is wonderful, and I'm working on a new commissioned collage piece. It was necessary, however, to clean up my studio a bit first. You can see a photo of my working studio here. Hope you all have a great day.

Today is a good art day! I'm working on gestural scketches for a large commissioned piece of artwork of an angel. I am excited about producing this artwork for a local Bed and Breakfast Inn. I have taken photos of the victorian home, furnishings, and garden from which to help me create. I have these photos pinned up all over the walls of my studio, classical music is on, and I'm in the creative mood. Blessings to all.

It's early Saturday morning and I'm looking forward to working a lot in my studio today. I am going to edge-bind the large California Society of Layerists and Multi Media Cooperative Art Project that I started in April 2005. This is a 36" x 245" rolled canvas that traveled to 28 artists all over California for a year and a half, each artist adding to the cooperative painting themed "California". It was really a fun artistic endeavor. I have included a photo of my part of the artwork for you to see. When I'm done binding it I will photograph the completed project to show you to. You can learn more about the Society of Layerists in Multi Media here: www.slmm.org. Best wishes to you until next time.

Today is Thurs. November 2, and this is the very first time I have ever done a blog. I'm not sure really what to do, so here goes my best attempt at it. I get to deliver my collage paintings to the gallery (www.20art.net) today, for the November showing of my work Stepping-Up Series. I have attached a photo for you to see. My work is all made from torn magazine papers, not paint. I hope you like them. Best wishes until next time.
