April Workshop with Pendragons Take Aways





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
  Rorschach rectangles.


 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.

  1. I used to go to every art show around here. Now I have 'stuff' and children who are not interested in it. I do still enjoy looking and may visit the Orchard Lake show next weekend. Love your first pic.

  2. Pigmentation
    Pigmentation refers to the discoloration of skin. Which occurs due to the presence of melanin, the pigmenting agent responsible for the dark black-brown tones existing

    in concentrated areas within the skin.
