Assemblages




I took an Assemblage Workshop today. WOW!! I have not done this before.........it was
A-maaaaaaaazzzzzzing! I have really needed something to spark my muse. In the past couple months I have felt it has really taken the "high road." It was fun to learn something new.
The guy who did the workshop has taken multiple workshops with Michael DeMeng, so it was REALLY a great workshop. I even was able to pick up a small piece of his original art (Richard Freund's) which I was pleased about because he is popular in this area.


Pictured are the 2 assemblages I completed today. It is so hard to get a good picture of these.
I have been really excited about this workshop the past several months. I can feel a style change coming. Its part of growing as an artist, and trying new things. Not that I will change completely-I am just ready to do some more experimenting. I LOVE to play. This workshop was JUST what I needed!

Kristy, Thanks for the exuberant comments and the link to my website. You were certainly one of the most enthusiastic and fastest participants in the workshop. And you had two of the best pieces made that day (and that is saying something as almost all twelve attendees made pretty good works of art).
