Spring is Here!

Things have been pretty quiet, since our last trip to Montreal.

For the most part, free time was consumed by doing our taxes.

It sucks when we have to be adults.

So glad that’s behind us.

We did take some time one weekend to go to Jersey for the big fossils, gems, and minerals show! As nerdy as we are, we thought this was going to be really cool, and while I am glad we went, it did not meet my expectations.

Most of you probably saw this coming.

In the studio, I have been working on finishing up my series.  I am closer to finishing Sloth which was a sin that I decided to do a second time.

So far, I am much happier with this version, than the previous one.

I also submitted LustGreed, and Gluttony, to a member show at Trestle gallery.  I hope they get accepted and sell.  But one step at a time.

In addition to the series, I have started playing around with different materials.

The purpose of this exercise was to not to overthink it and just have fun.  I did exactly that.

I created this collage inside an old hardcover book.

I found the book at a thrift store and am now using it as a sketch book.

I’m going to call this collage, “I’ve got a bad feeling.”

I got the idea to use an old book as a sketchbook, from artists, Martha Rich and Lisa Congdon.

Spring took a while getting here, but its finally warming up.  Jeff and I have a long list of summer adventures planned, so stay tuned for that.

Thanks for reading!
