This is what I was working on before I left for Atlantic city. After viewing Pauline Hudel Smith's awesome sketchbook I was inspired to incorporate collage layers with the painting/stenciling I've been doing lately. I think I will keep going with it. Isn't her work amazing? She makes perfect sense out of what most others consider nothing, scraps, trash. I wish I was comfortable enough to leave such wide open space in my work.
Are you involved in the sketchbook project 2012? There is still time left to drop $25 on a sketchbook that will get to travel all over the US and Canada, as well as become part of the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library. I have had mine for about a month, and I am still nervous about starting and finishing. Story of my life. Only 2 more weeks left to this semester(yay!), so I don't have anymore excuses.
