Just wanted to take a minute to show some new artwork I have been making.

I bought this cute tiny Chinese calendar at the Harvard Library book sale last year.

It has beautiful botanical illustrations on each page that I thought would look good on the face of one of my drawings. I also have some asian text books in my stash to help fill in the area for the face.

Here is the beginning of one of the drawings. I use pencil and Caran d’ ache crayons to color and shade the face.

After the drawing is complete I start the auditioning process for what items will populate the rest of the collage.

As you can see I tried several different elements.

I finally settled on this bird on a branch and the beautiful green leaf. This drawing and collage was finished in 2 days, that is incredibly fast for me!

    I really enjoy the features on the women’s face with the butterfly. She looks like a determined women who knows her own mind. Can’t wait for open studios.
