After what seems like a long absence from my last post, I decided to take on a big project to make up for it. Yes that's right, I signed up for the 2011 Sketchbook Project and got my sketchbook in the mail today. Excited!!! All boxes have been unpacked, furniture has been re-arranged a billion times in the new house and now I am ready to get back into my creative routine.
So what is this Sketchbook Project you ask? It is described to be like a concert tour but with sketchbooks. My little sketchbook along with thousands of others, will make it's way around the country for all to see. It will have a barcode on the back so I can track how many times it has been viewed. After the tour, it will arrive to it's permanent home at the Brooklyn Art Library in NY. Which makes me happy, because I have a good friend in Brooklyn who can check it out whenever the mood strikes. Keep an eye on her for me Bridgette!
Each sketchbook has a theme, and I chose "Adhere to Me". I'm not quite sure exactly how I will execute the theme, but you can count on things being adhered with adhesives. Maybe a cut and paste is in order of all of my archived sketch books throughout the years. Maybe some collages. Maybe a little of both. Will it tell a story? I don't know. We shall see how it evolves!
Hello! Welcome to my art blog. I'm planning to paint every day in 2015 to improve, learn and see where it leads. Not a painting a day, just painting a little every day for now. Please post a comment or feel free to ask questions. And of course I would love any inquiries about purchasing a painting.
