Paper, Paper, Finally Paper

For about six months, I have been thinking I really wanted to try working on paper with mixed media and I finally got a chance to go for it. I am happy with the results, I feel like the work has a freshness and room to breath. I enjoyed physically layering cut paper onto the work also. I can't wait to try it again.

Looking Forward to 2015!

I have a number of classes proposed for the Winter session at The Arts Center In Orange. These classes are meant to explore the unpredictable and mysterious nature of the creative process. I hope to find some participants to embark on this artistic adventure with me.

I have one more month of full time elementary art teaching. This experience has been a great learning adventure. I am happy to report the individual spirit of our American youth is alive and well. These students could have tried to copy Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry, Starry Night" but I believe every one was inspired to follow their own artistic voice. The magic of children.
