As you know I’ve been working on a lot of new things this fall. It all began with “the wall” but I also ended up experimenting with some new themes in my work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a fan of maps. But – I inherited about 40 years worth of magazines that have really great pictures. My intention is to play around with them, and alter them to see how I can use them in my artwork as another collage material.

In these past few weeks, though, I’ve started filming my progress on the wall painting. I actually completed the collage and am working on the writing. The painting part is still in progress. I actually ran out of the colors I was using, and I have to re-order them — local stores don’t carry my strange mix of colors.
