Okay, I'm still working on my "quilts", but I thought I should spend some time on my classes, since I was so excited about them. So in Suzi's new class, I'm feeling a little more confident with the 3/4 view, and I think I'm ready to put some color in this Elizabeth--
I think she seems a little more regal than my other one that I posted. I'm just tired of sketching and I want some color now.
And I also signed up for Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen's Complex Collage class just last week, so I'm just getting started in that one. Right now they're going over the principals of collage, and they're covering everything right down to the different mediums that you can use. They're going to teach us how to make interesting collages with layers and color and also texture as opposed to just gluing an image to a surface. This is what I want to learn. I want to make a collage that will be interpreted differently from each person that views it---one with depth and meaning. I hope I can achieve this.
And I also want to thank Bobbi for giving me this--
I love her blog Bobbi's Art. She is a multi-talented artist, and she also likes to go thrift store shopping--my kind of girl. And I love her humor too and check out the beautiful way she photographs what she's posting. So--thank you Bobbi--it's so nice to get these awards--I will always appreciate them!! And she really did send me some sunshine--it's actually sunny here today! It's been raining since Tuesday, and hey, we even had a little snow yesterday : )
