collage paintings

I've created two collage paintings with my
jester & pin wheel
drawings. I'm not in love with the paintings, but the process is interesting
and needs to be explored further.

Just filling my sketchbook . . .

Still drawing,
but I've moved
on to another subject.
Or, rather back to
one of my favorite
subjects -

the Jester.



 



I've decided to
add more of my own drawing to
the collage.

Pin Wheels.

collages . . .

I'm still making
collages with
my own art.
But I'm moving
on from
ACEO/ATC's
to something larger.
I made a collection
of colored pencil
drawings
~ a few vases
~ a decoy
~ even a background
I used quality
color copies
and
collaged them
to a
painted
watercolor
paper.

Artland - Art in Progress - ArtStar

So - I'm watching
ARTLAND on TV
and I wonder what
other ART shows
am I missing.
I search on my DVR and I
find ART in PROGESS
on the Halogen channel 

Love it too!
and

ARTSTAR
ARTSTAR from 2006
where have I been?
Wait - I've watched almost 2 episodes
Dissapointing - it's more about manipulating a group of artists - forcing them into group projects when they were under the impression they each would have a gallery show. I know it was shot in NYC and "shock" value is their idea of entertainment - but nakedness & bubble wrap, etc - is that the best they can come up with?

ArtLand TV Show

I just discovered
ArtLand on TV.
Normally I berate TV
for sucking up all my time
and inspiration -
but ARTLAND is fabulous.
So inspirational.
Art in America
hosted by BBC -
go figure.
But I love it.
I just want to paint
or draw
or collage . . .

I'm waiting for that
"Ah Ha" moment when
I know exactly what I want to work on.
The perfect subject to inspire me
to take up the brushes and paint.
Until that happens,
I'll fill my time with drawing.
And maybe a little collage.
Maybe use my own drawings
in the collage.
See where I'm going with this!

I need a new project. A DEADLINE.
Something Tangible.
A note on my Calendar.
A PROMISE.
It's so easy to just PAINT PAINT PAINT.
The hard part is coming up with the ideas.
 Right now I'm just filling my sketchbook with random drawings.
