Some colorful pages in my sketchbook. Sometimes you don’t want to think too hard about imagery and just want to go for color.
Taking a break from layout and using the computer. It’s good to just play around again with painting and drawing. A good time to get back to just holding a pencil.
Finally some time to put the pieces together. I love making each of the elements in a collage and then arranging them all for a final layout. These little squares will go on small birch panels.
Happy that I got to do some art today!! Here near Seattle, we have had some serious rain even by our standards. It’s been a rainy, drizzly spring. Today I made collage paintings inspired by the science of weather and the hope of sunny days to come.
I love the shape of a square. Compact, symmetrical and concise. No wonder so many of my final prints end up this way.
I’ve been working on some new imagery for some cedar plank plaques. Sometimes we visit the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery just to see the beautiful peacocks that live on the grounds. I have yet to hear their loud cry but from what I understand, they can make quite a racket.
