I sold a drawing the other day (this is the one). And completed a commissioned piece. I also finished a painting that was long on the list of not-quite-finisheds. And prepped a board I plan to use for a big collage. Maybe I'll start that today. Yes, I've had a thirty-mile bike ride this morning, and now that it's raining out, it's the perfect thing.

Next, I'd like to report that I sent out several proposals for shows, but I haven't. (Well, I sent out one - it was in a drawer for six months, not quite finished.) I'm not sure what holds me back on that one, I think it has to do with familiarizing myself with the ropes. If I've learned anything from David Allen, it's this: identifying the next action step is often the hardest part of any project. Here's an action I can take: I'll call an artist friend to ask if she could please just point me in the right direction. Give me a hint. An assignment. A suggestion. Just one baby step.

One step at a time, right? Right.

Recipe For the Beach

Eventually I will upload the last three collages in the Daily Collage series - sixty in all. (Next, I plan to make bigger collages, and also a 60-day series of drawings.)

For now, I want to share with you a little from another series I began shortly after the collage series got underway. I'm a bit addicted to making these found-object assemblage pieces. I compulsively collect junk and chastised myself for it. Now I know why. I've made about fifteen of these so far. Here are three. The first two are 6.5 x 6.5 x 2", the third is 10 x 10 x 2", approximately.

More Dailies

Someday I'll label these properly and make the for-sale links, but for now, there are so many things I'd rather do. Suffice it to say: I made some more collages. I wanted to share them with you. If you want one, email me. Happy spring!
