Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.Andy Warhol
The sun was shining and the city streets were calling my name so I grabbed my camera and set off.
I found shadows,
patches of sunlight,
an interesting window grid,
and a yellow pipe and board that all made interesting compositions.

I love to create my own decorated papers to use in my designs and collages. One method I like to use also has the advantage of recycling magazine pages. You could also use junk mail or catalog pages.
I start by covering the magazine pages with gesso, using haphazard brush strokes to create texture.
Then I brush on acrylic ink, again using haphazard brush strokes.
Next, I bring out my gel plate, acrylic paint and tools, including brayers, texture plates, and graining tools.
The final step is to pull the print and let it dry.
Live your life by a compass, not a clock.Stephen Covey
Wednesday was a grey overcast day and the woods were mostly brown, but I was feeling the need for a day in nature so I took myself to Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. It felt good to be out in the fresh air and listen to the sound of rushing water. And my leg muscles appreciated the workout, especially on that long hill.
