Several Shows Coming Up

I am in the process of getting my work into some local shows.  Each year I exhibit at the Addison Art Guild shows and all of the Midwest Collage Society Shows.  I currently have 2 collage paintings at Orchard Church on display.  Next month I hope to  participate in the  Earth Day Artifacts Show at the Culturestock book store in Aurora, Illinois.  It takes quite a bit of coordinating, documenting and photographing to be ready when the opportunity presents itself.  My collage painting, Mystery Mandala won an award last fall and is currently at the Orchard Community Church.

Working with scraps.

Shades of Green

I have been sorting through my large stash of papers in search of some good greens.  I am also staining some papers to create unique shades of green.  I will be putting together some art cards for St Patricks Day.  It is always a challenge to come up with a new design.  Yet, it is a meditation.  I focus on the task of combining, sorting  and forget everything else.
