But, I did find time to take all four classes by Seth Apter at Roadhouse Arts this past weekend. Holy Moley! I have been a fan of his his artwork for several years, and when it was my turn to pick a national instructor for Roadhouse Arts, he was my first (and only) choice. I was not disappointed! Not only is his artwork fantastic, he is a fabulous instructor full of techniques and encouragement. I ended the weekend rejuvenated and inspired.
Above is my project from the Brick by Brick workshop. We built a wall with a mosaic of handmade papers and "incised" a word. My word was inspired by why we build walls, either physically or psychologically, and that is to keep ourselves safe. My colors were a bit happy for such a somber sentiment. I could say that I was trying to make a statement about the dichotomy. But, it is more likely that I just like blues and greens :).
