I received an email inquiring about what art classes I plan to teach, digital collage or watercolor? Both, if I can, but my current thinking, (subject to change), is not classes, but projects offered on CD’s or online PDF’s. The watercolor projects will be mixed water media, meaning watercolor, acrylic, watercolor crayon and pencil with collage. This is the technique I taught at the John Campbell Folk School a few years ago. The image I posted is one of the watercolor, acrylic and collage creations done on distressed watercolor board.

The wait has ended for the AAC awards to be posted on their site. I'm pleased to say that I won an Honorable Mention for my funny little abstract “Power Play”. I regret not entering one of my “far-out” drawings, but I waited too late as usual to do one. I have this desire to do something with a fish next time. In the meantime I’m still consumed with watercolor.

I learned yesterday that the upcoming traveling show of the Atlanta Artist’s Center’s entry deadline is Saturday at noon. I thought I had missed it and wasn’t prepared to enter this time. Now that I have a few more days I’m painting away. This is one is I started in a class I took last fall. It was much larger, but I felt it needed to be cropped and a few final bits of calligraphy added to tie the two larger areas together. The collage piece has the word Power printed on it so I decided to title the piece “Power Play”. I always struggle to name my work as I think it forces the viewer to see it my way. The other side of the coin is my title often speaks to the viewer as much as the work itself.
