I haven't done anything "serious" in awhile - including this. My Thursday afternoon class wanted to play around with watercolor on gesso-ed paper (gesso is a canvas primer that resists water). The good news and the bad news is that the color can be lifted. It is so forgiving, it is really never finished - I just keep adding here, subtracting there, and each subsequent layer of color pushes around the previous layer.

Now I want to play around some more with clayboard. AND some monoprint. AND . . .

I really do have to get to WORK. Every once in awhile I have to get this experimenting out of my system. I guess that is the way we grow, isn't it. If we don't try something new - or at least something splashy, juicy, or messy, we'll just stay the same forever. Or at least our art will. That's what I'm telling myself, and that's what I'm telling my husband when he says "Haven't you received any checks lately?"
