2015 was a weird year. I felt unfocused about my art, and distracted by too many other things to really concentrate on anything specific. I tried out a few new techniques: collage and watercolor combo, mono printing with a Gelli Plate; both fun and interesting. I did several collages with gelli printed textures and will be doing more this year.
|Elizabeth in Purple, watercolor plus painted paper collage, 8x10"|
|Flamingoes in Flight, collage with acrylic printed papers, 8x10"|
|Tree of Life, for my mom, ink 9x12"|
|Copper Rainbow Tree of Life|
But, I think I should probably get back to some watercoloring! I'm excited that my daughter and I are planning an art trip to Ireland in June, and there are endless inspirations from gardens to national parks to our own neighborhood. And I still have several picture book ideas floating around. Lots to do in 2016... wish me luck. Also, visit my Etsy store to order coloring books, custom wire trees, paintings and more to come.
Happy New Year to you!
