Working at Last

Finally, Lexa & I have started our project. Based on Text and Texture by Ann Baldwin, we are trying a chapter each session. Managed to make one text collage on black paper today and create a background for the next collage. We will add layer by layer until we have masterpieces! Lots of fun and experimentation.

Long Slow Summer

Well, I don't think we are really having summer here, but it's not raining at the moment. Have had the opportunity to visit a young Picasso Museum and a Gaudi Museum and the Park Guell in Barcelona. I think I now understand so much more about these 2 geniuses. Must continue the research. Now back at home and just saw the Current Threads II fibre arts show at the Waterfront Gallery in Ladysmith. It's well worth the 1.5 hours from Victoria, with many interesting pieces. Last week in Vancouver, I saw the Color of my Dreams, surrealism exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery. I went to see the connection between the Surrealists and the Pacific Northwest Aboriginals, who would have thought of that?
