Ive been hard at work - trying to keep up - with #the100DayProject. I hope i can make it to 100. Only 91 more days to go! Ive been expiring collages. My idea was to do 1 8"x8" collage (digital or analog) per day. And while I started putting pressure on myself to make amazing pieces, now I am just trying to have some fun.

My (now) 4 year old daughter loves to shout "LOVE IT" whenever she's excited about something. Well, I'm excited about a few things and made this little diddy to share. I feel like my art is going in exciting directions and its just one of those days when i love my job.
The plan is to create a collection for each letter of the alphabet... Starting with A is for Arctic...
Here are my two pieces I created (last week) for the Lilla Rogers art course I have been taking. Once again I started with a few hours of monoprinting cut shapes and then added line drawings and a few random scanned objects. The assignment was to create "wall" decor for a canvas. There needed to be collage elements, a flower, a bit of text and my assigned colors were orange and blue. (yay - to Syracuse (my alma matter) and to the Mets (my original home team!) The target demographic happened to fall within my age range - so that was a help. I'm pretty pleased with the way they turned out. I think i've found a new way of working! I think i may even get the first one printed on canvas and hang it in my daughters room. (She wants the top one. She even carried a printout of it around the house this weekend.
