|Finding My Way|
8x10" reused canvas board layered with venetian plaster,
acrylics and Gelli-pirnted papers with pen scribbles.
The next day I took another workshop with Sandra Duran Wilson, who is an amazing abstract collage artist from Santa Fe. I wish I could study with her all the time. Since these workshops, I have been enamored with the properties of plaster and continue to explore and play with ways to use it, combining it with other media.
I have started using my Gelli-printed papers to create some little collages. Since I am on an extremely tight budget, I am finding things I have around the house to work with. I cut up a Blick Art box and used it for my canvas, layering on venetian plaster. I like the rough edges of the cardboard, too. I especially like the scribbles that Jane Davies uses in her collages.
