Paint on Paper

I've been doing some freeform painting with black gesso and watercolor. I learned this particular technique at a workshop I too with Laura Wait at Penland. We used all kinds of twigs, rocks and other found brushes to make marks on paper. It was one of the most freeing classes I have ever done.

I made some papers last night and then folded them into signature and made a little artist book. I still need to sew it together but wanted to show you my process.

I used to do a lot of collage. I've been doing more jewelry making and have gotten away from paper and glue. With the new year I am going to make one thing a day... nothing fancy and using whatever is around. I've made two new collages and I'm excited to get back into this medium.

Take a look .
