Most of you know that I do mixed-media folk art as a hobby. I usually post a video at the end of the year. So here that is.
2016 was a weird, scattered year for me, art-wise. I signed up for too many long workshops and ended up downloading and saving most of the lessons. I worked on loose sheets instead of in a journal, so everything is disconnected. Different sizes. I experimented with a bunch of different styles and media, so things never quite fit together into a body of work. I guess the closest was the fairy tale series from Tamara Laporte’s “Ever After” workshop.
So for 2017, I signed up for only three workshops. I’m working in an 11×14 journal. I think it’s going to be a better, more coherent year. One can only hope!
