Quick Painted Sketch Paper - Collage #21

You know the feeling when the piece is created quickly and you're happy with it? Collage #21 fits this description. It could be that I'm getting comfortable with the process of adding multiple pattern papers together into one collage. Also, I'm giving myself a break on making these collages. I'm delighted that I create a collage a week with all that I have on my plate right now. Some days I just can't work on a collage. Even for 15 minutes, which was my initial intent with these collages. I'm okay with that...now. Enjoying the process!

"Infinite Connections" at Quiltfest Oasis

"Infinite Possibilities"
My piece called "Infinite Possibilities" is traveling to Palm Springs in October to be shown at Quiltfest Oasis with the Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists exhibit "Infinite Connections".

Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists' exhibit statement:

This exhibit is dedicated to the infinite opportunities for connections and all they bring to our lives. It allows each artist to explore the meaning of the word "infinite" and how that meaning might relate to the people and world around us.

My artist statement for "Infinite Possibilities":

This artwork has 15 separate pieces. My idea is that each piece can be rearranged so the design can change depending on how the 15 pieces are attached. Infinite possibilities for infinite connections.  

If you're in the Palm Springs area, here is the information regarding the show:

Quiltfest Oasis - October 6  - 8, 2016
Palm Springs Convention Center
277 North Avenida Caballeros
Palm Springs, CA

Quick Painted Sketch Paper - Collage #20

While working on Collage #20, I kept changing the orientation from horizontal to vertical and back again. I still can't decide which is more pleasing. Either way, I'm happy with the way this collage turned out. On to the next one!

Quick Painted Sketch Paper - Collage #19

I'm continuing on with this series of collages. Collage #19 is going further into the multiple design collages. As mentioned previously, it's not my normal style. Definitely, outside my comfort zone. I do like the painterly style in the designs that are the white background with the black paint strokes.

Quick Painted Sketch Papers and Collage #18

It's been a few weeks since I painted. A couple of days ago I found a hour to paint more patterns for my stitched collage series.

 
I was able to finish Collage #18 today. I'm really into the swirly shape on the left. A similar shape was used for Collages #12, #8  and #7.
