Every so often I like to go back to the beginnings … show you (and remind me) where I’ve been. This would be day 5 of Mari Le Glatin Keis’ Travelling Sketchbook workshop (2008). On the right – where I came from: pencil drawings. And on the left, a little bit of everything she taught us: collage with a map background and stickers; stamped logos; a compass rose, one of my favorite devices; and especially color! Turning myself on to color was probably the single best break-through in my artistic life. Who knew I could be colorful? In fact, there was a time I was scared of color. Just shows to go ya, we can effect change in ourselves.
