In the past couple of months, things changed very quickly. I kid you not. We moved states. Literally.
I have not had much time for painting which is most rare regardless the circumstances but I have a designated space set up to work with art journaling and related concepts and exploring how that, now, is translated in the way I see my work.
I am changing, my work is changing.
My journaling time leans toward my studies with Erin Faith Allen's, courses Metamorph and Inner Space, (Love these year long workshops...you have time to dive deep)
I have learnt so much.
I've grown my disciplines, adding collage and multi media to my tool kit and my journals are becoming, it is time to start translating this expression on to canvas.
It has been some months since I have written a post.
Life has been so busy with personal things, there hasn't been much to tell with painting. I had packed it all to move with the exception of my main journaling supplies which we kept with us when moving. It became my staple.
I am yet to begin a new series of paintings in earnest.
We have just settled our family and begun a new adventure. My painting is reflecting that and it is mostly journal oriented.
I have decided to share the process 'of becoming' as this expression finds it's way out.
So in essence , instead of cataloguing work at the time of release with a series, I will share the journal pages as they are created, the artworks that come out of this time will be my next body of work.
I'm surprised by this evolution in mixed media but am deeply involved with the process of daily journaling, and excited at the prospect of broadening some more.
Sculpture is in my sights, as is installation pieces but first, we have some more settling in to do. Foundations are important for a long term vision. The forest is still informing me.
