Working on New Stuff Recently

I've been painting up a storm recently and having a ball. I find my time spent in my studio so rewarding and I just get lost in time. I finished to two collages I was working on for Paulette Insalls' class~Organic Dimension. I had so much fun taking this class and learned so much. If you ever have the chance to take a class from her, don't hesitate. She has a wonderful way of teaching and as I said, I learned so much.
I am in the middle of taking her classs~All about Faces. We just finished Lesson two and already, I can see that I making HUGE gains in my drawing talents. Now, if I can just get the painting part down. But, as she says, practice, practice, practice!!!
I'll post my finished collages here today and I'm sure that there will be many more in the future. I just love this media and it has freed up my imagination beyond my wildest dreams!
Also, I have been reading "Taking Flight" by Kelly Rae Roberts. It is a very special book and I am so glad that I found out about it. It is about mixed media collage, but also so much more. She is so inspirational and reading her book makes you feel like it is written just for you. Amazon carries it and I highly recommend it.
Go to and check out her work. It is awesome!

Just posted my recent work

I've been taking some of Paulette Insalls' classes lately and it has been wonderful. I am in week four of her Organic Dimension class and just posted my work through week three. I will post more when I get done. Also, I just started her All about Faces class and we are in week one. I will be posting my work as I go along too.
I am also taking classes through Cindi Estes, learning the Jansen Art Traditions painting. It is an indepth class and will last for about another year. It is wonderful journey. I will be posting some of my work from that class as well.
