Inspiration

I love being inspired.  That is why I attend art galleries, art shows, craft sales, and why I read books, magazines and blogs.  It is so fun to see what is happening out there.  Awhile back I came across the piblication CLOTH, PAPER, SCISSORS and I fell in love.  The mixed media, creative, anything goes nature of the art in this magazine are liberating. 

One of my favourite subjects in art is women, so I came across an article by Kelli Rae Roberts in the Nov/Dec 07 issue in which she shares how to make one-of-a-kind patchwork collage paintings.  This inspiration led to creating.  Here are some of the results, some finished, some not.

My favourite new technique I learned with these paintings is how much fun it is to paint with a Breyer!!
