Fish Head Press

I've finished for the most part my new printmaking studio at Art Mundo.  



A tiny closet under the stairs, way in the back of The Underground near the back door.


The location includes 5 other studios, big and small.
We call the space "The Studios Back Under".
It's a new space with good energy.  Grand opening on the December 11 Art Walk.

Bowls!

My first firing in my kiln!  Still and forever, probably, working on my 
knowledge of glazes.  There were some great surprises, some not so great.
It's all about the learning, though and I'll do my best to remember what I did
on the ones I like so I can perhaps revisit them in new form!

Painted Paper, The Addiction!

I've discovered that besides being fun, painting paper
is an emotional release.  It doesn't require a "subject".

THE PRESSURE IS OFF!  Ha!

It's just a play between, patterns, color and style.
When at this play, worrisome thoughts melt away and the sheer joy
of making marks, picking pleasing color combinations
& "aha-ing" to the next bit of paper and paint take center stage.


Painted paper on the studio table.  


The drama.



The shapes and colors.


Aha! The beginning of inspiration. 

FUN.

Spinners


It's sometimes the simplest things that delight the most.  
A bit of wood, a circle of cardboard.



Paints, colored pencils, markers . . .


The magic of simple kinetics.






Join me at Art Mundo for a couple of hours of simple fun
creating and playing with spinners.

Check here for the schedule to this and other fun, creative classs.  
If it isn't quite there yet, check again later.  It will be.
