The medium size journal is from 2003. The large one is from 2005. The small one is 2009. A history of paint, collage, journaling, and just simple self expression. I used more paint back then and I liked to stick three dimensional stuff on the pages in the early 2000's.
I wrote in my journal the other day that I'm right where I need to be. I have never felt more fulfilled with my art making than I have since I took up collage (my passion has grown even deeper over the years.) I have often said that while I am an experienced teacher, at the same time I am still a student. There is always something new to learn. I'm still finding my place with collage (as well as myself) and I am eager to see how far I can push it.
I'm teaching my "Telling Your Truth" workshop this Sunday at the Art Bar in Santa Ana. Next Saturday I'll be back in L.A. at Word is Art teaching Luscious Layers. More workshop info can be found here.
