Making Art

This past weekend I spent an evening with 13 people doing what I like to do best...making art. 


I taught my Text Tiles workshop at Little Bird Creation Studio in NYC. Michele Luxenberg has recently opened this new art space and is working hard to bring heavy hitters from the mixed media world to New York. Ingrid Dijkers was recently here and both Dawn Devries Sokol and Sue Pelletier are on the schedule too. 

The workshop was all about working small but with a big impact. Using wood cradled panels as the substrate, layer upon layer of texture and color was created...





Text was used as the primary foreground component for these pieces...



The final pieces were all tremendous and a good time was definitely had by all...


Follow these links to blog posts from people in the workshop to see some additional photos and a lot of wonderful art...
