always exploring....

With every new year comes resolutions for change, and  my art practice is always smack bang in the middle of those thoughts...explore new materials and methods, follow new artists, change things up and just play! On one hand that it is good, but on the other the art that came from these explorations seems to have been created by more than one person...almost no commonalities, other than I know that I did all of them!!

I've played with oils for the first time on a course with local artist Hermine Coleman, and  signed up for a figure painting course in oils with Michael Carsons, a charcoal course with Kara Bullock to learn how to use charcoal in portraits, and a short course with Stan Kurth using gouache and watercolours. I took a deep dive into gel plate printing that took me on another tangent, where I played some more. And for the mental and emotional challenge, which is the most important, I have followed the teachings of the inspirational Louise Fletcher. I feel that I have only scratched the surface with all these mediums and I have enough inspiration to see me through many more years of exploring.  Have I found my style yet? Nope, and I hope to never find myself static in one place in this journey through life and art.
