I've been invited by Sue Bleiweiss to join a sketchbook challenge group starting in January 2011. I've never been particularly good at joining groups or making art according to someone else's direction, but I checked out the other artists in the group, and they look absolutely inspiring! I'll post a reminder early in the year so you won't forget to join in the challenge. I've got to choose which kind of sketchbook I will use. Shall I make one by hand? Get a spiral bound one?
Meanwhile, I am still working in collage painting, and would like to incorporate subject matter into my work. I have found Katherine Dunn's book, Creative Illustration Workshop for Mixed Media Artists, a real inspiration. Her style is SO different from mine, yet I feel a real connection to her work. Above are a couple of pieces I've done recently that are directly inspired by Katherine. I hope to evolve this into something more my own.
