This blind contour drawing of a lily and some yellow flowers with added water color
& suminagashi on top was my favorite piece from a work shop I attended in April.
The Pendragons is a calligraphy guild I belong to based in Kalamazoo Michigan. Every spring they bring in a well known artist to do a 2-3 day work shop for us. This year is was Sharon Zeugin.
So many ways to write or "create" a word. Lots of exercises where we stretched,
bounced, or somehow manipulated words & phrases.
A favorite tid bit from the work shop for me was what Sharon referred to as her
A small rectangle of stamp material, about 2 X 4 inches. Paint water color in lines accross the surface. Place on your paper. You never know what result you will get
which is the fun & magic of it.
Fun to break out lots of tools & colors to play with.
Off to my favorite framing store this week. Arnie's in Houghton Lake. There is a stash of art work I've had set aside to frame for quite some time. My two art pals & I are making a pilgrimage to get our stuff done. Then will come the fun of where to put it in the walls.
