I am very excited to be taking a long, winding, scenic route from Colorado back to the midwest over the next few days. I’ll be traveling through areas of Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota before I finally jump on to an interstate on head east. I have my camera ready, spare memory cards, extra batteries charged and a big smile on my face thinking of all the beautiful & fun things I’ll discover along the way. I have been in Breckenridge, Colorado as the resident artist at “The Tin Shop” since the 2nd of September. This was my second visit here and it was, again, an awesome experience to be able to leave “normal life” behind for a while and focus on art and creativity. I’ve felt very “in balance” with myself and hope that it will continue when I return home. Life is always evolving and I feel like there are many positive changes happening! As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be offline for a few days but I wanted to keep some posts going while I am gone. These are some work-in-progress images, as well as some completed pieces that I worked on a few days ago. The rest will be in my next post so stay tuned!
These are more of the mixed media work on illustration board. This time I cut the board into smaller sizes to make several smaller pieces instead of the large 20×30″ ones. Here are the 8 pieces after I have them covered with contact paper and the designs marked out on them:
The next image is about 2/3 of the way through the cutting, peeling & painting of individual areas on each piece:
Now for some finished products!
These felt different to make after having spent many days working on very textural, organic art on wood. But it was a fun departure!
Till next time,
