Welcome to my art blog.
This is where you'll find some of the things I'm trying to accomplish... a little of this and that. Paintings, photography, collage and sewing...every artful endeavor helps me keep my sanity in this mixed up world.

Fresh Start 2010
Happy New Year to all! I love January 1. It's a time to reflect on what worked and what didn't work so well in the previous year. It's a day to plan new things. I get out my notebook of lined paper and a pen or two and start to map out a strategy for the new year. I'm careful not to make resolutions, because they seldom work for me. A series of collages using copies of my own work combined with vintage drawings has jump-started my creativity this month. It has been so fun to take familiar shapes and arrange them in new ways. I found that just the exercise of rearranging the shapes in different configurations helped get my creativity rolling again after a couple of weeks of "artlessness".
