Going back a ways …

24-25_Column_SB01

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.

  1. What fun. It is interesting to ‘review’ and see where we have been and where we are now. Oft times we forget that we are changing/growing unless we take time to reflect back. Five years goes by very quickly!
