Studio Time, Yipee.

I have a few precious weeks to myself now that the kids are back in school and I am not back to work just yet.  Our pre-school starts right after Labor Day.  I divided the time I set aside for productivity in two: two hours for computer work (yes still recovering from the crash), and three hours in the studio.  In the studio today I developed this rhythm that moved me along further than I thought I would get.  You know that feeling you get when you break through what I call the creative beginning block (of any given new work)?  I was even humming along with Beach Boys.  As I searched through some of my altered papers, I think I managed to find some nice textures and the right color scheme for this piece.  I coated a bunch of the papers with polymer media and then altered a few more National Geographic pages. The results from the National Geographics were just what I was looking for.  Now I can't wait to get them laid our on the masonite board.  Tomorrow maybe. 

I also found a small 4 by 4 inch canvas board with a very old work on it (from 2005).  It was really, really bad.  Usually I would throw something like that away but I decided that I would work with it some more.  I de-collaged the piece a bit using sandpaper and then redid the facial features of the person.  I left the message alone.  This will be my next found art piece.  It is done so I just need to figure out when and where I will leave it.  So those of you in the area, be watching my face book page.  Free Art soon!

Enjoy your creative time in your studio. You deserve it. You really went through hoops getting the kids settled with the drama camps. I think you are a great mom!
