Summer has flown and winter is just around the corner. I have continued playing with paint, pouring, tilting the board, letting colors flow. It is freeing and lots of fun.
We recently returned home after attending the Society of Layerists in Multi media,(SLMM), conference in Hays, Kansas. It was a wonderfully inspiring experience of visiting artists' studios, exploring the outsider art in Russell, Kansas, taking workshops, and most of all enjoying the camaraderie of like- minded artists , spouses, and guests. I am honored to serve as a board member for SLMM and promote our premise of cooperation, sharing, helping each other, rather than the completion so prevalent in art and life. On our return home I continued working on collages and find this process great for developing design skills. Sometimes it is one step forward and two back but the results are gratifying. Ahh, the joys of intuitive painting!
