Forward thinking, incubating....and creating

Yesterday I took a road trip out to the Starline Gallery...from me with traffic it could be about 1 1/2 hours to get there.  I brought an artist friend that had not see the place before and that was just delightful to show her around.   I've been invited to exhibit on a wall space there next year.  I like to physical see the space and I also like to talk to the people I'm going to be working with face to face if at all possible.   
I was asked to show my process of creativity...How Awesome is that?   I'm so pumped up and excited.  I have tons of other stuff going on or about to go on my life (new classes and workshop etc this late summer and early fall.)  I'm just so happy that I started now with this process of getting prepared for an exhibit.  I want to create new works and this is so dang exciting...I can hardly contain here's my notes still need some details work out and there is time.. I left out the names of the people I'm working with now...just because.

Idea's....first popped into my head...

These images I've shard are form morning collage mediation...where I set and create with magazine paper for about half an hour and let it be what ever comes out in relationship to the papers I pick from the start and the relationship that evolves from how the papers are next to each other. 


make small thumb nail size piece and bring them larger....


Create a piece and use a view finder and break that puppy down and recreate new piece for the views I find...

I am so pumped...I've not felt this way in along time.  So Grateful for the invite from Nancy Merkling at Starline Gallery.
