Spent a beautiful warm sunny day outside yesterday painting papers to restock my palette.
Living in New England I don't have the luxury of mild year round weather...and I would much rather paint outdoors to keep the art room clean. So, that means grabbing those great summer days as I can get them.
I took all of my rice papers, book pages, etc out with me along with watercolors, acrylics, and some twinkling H2O's for an afternoon of fun!!
Luckily I have a great glass top table that is perfect for this. I can get it wet and messy and simply clean it off with the hose. Can't do that in the art room..lol
As you can see...I got quite a bit done. Now.... I need to find more time to actually do some paper making next. I'm starting to run out of those nice hand made pieces. That too is a messy process, so I'd rather grab some outside time for that as well.
That's also fun because you end up with papers you never even dreamed of creating!! Pure inspiration!
I am a full time artist who loves to experiment and enjoy teaching what I've learned as well. I also LOVE to travel. I think my dream job would be to travel to places near & far just to do art!!!
I live with my husband in a lovely home on a pond in New England
