Here you can see how I started blocking out the colors for the "Flamingos" collage.
Things have been going pretty well at the studio. I like being able to interact with the public on an almost daily basis - it's a nice change of pace from what I'm accustomed to (listening to radio shows while collaging by myself in my apartment). Although at the same time, I couldn't imagine having to run an open studio year round. There's quite a lot of responsibility involved, and quite a bit of work. I find that I like using the internet as a means to reach an audience and customers.
Today I was especially amused by a comment that one of the visitors made. He talked to me for a little bit, left the studio, then returned and asked me if I grew up on a farm.
"Oh - I was wondering because you do a lot of animals."
I was a bit puzzled and glanced over at the wall where my art is being exhibited. I saw a toucan, giraffe, and iguana. Where was he coming from? Then of course I remembered the print of the purple cow collage I've done that was perched at the top of an easel. Funny how we can hone in on one detail and ignore everything else.
Anyway, I hope all the fathers out there are having a grand Father's Day!
