So! I do lots of different art type things. I’ve earned my living, miraculously, as an artist for as long as I can remember. So, this weekend was my hometown art festival in our pretty little downtown. Winter Park, Florida is a charming and lush, bricked street, lake in every square mile…..oak canopied, sun dappled type of town.
I remember my grandad showing his beautiful paintings on the sidewalk there when I was a child, and later my mom showing her paintings in the park across the street.. And now, for many years, I have had the pleasure of being one of the artists who get to “set up shop” with my work. It’s a happy legacy and one filled with friends, music, lifelong memories and wonderful Artists…. And a new tradition of “bowling night” that’s a whole other story…
Thank you Winter Park for your love of artists!! You are a wonderful hometown. XOXOXOOXXO

Just back from the Plein Air Convention in Monterey California. Wow! Fantastic! It was really enjoyable…. great demos, great artists…I will have lots more to say on that topic in the near future.
So, while I was there It occurred to me that my brain may work differently than most. (Insert joke here). I realized my way of working with collage all these years, may help me simplify composition and understand value better. I headed up to my favorite river, the Wekiva, and set about doing a torn paper collage first and a study in oil after.

All I had was a magazine and some glue. No scissors, no nuthin.
Here’s a few pics of what happened.

Torn paper collage in the basic shape of the river in front of me. It was a ton of fun. Then the little 5×5 painting on paper, was enjoyable too. I made a map for myself and kept it simple.

Outside and making stuff. That’s really all I need!!
XOXOXOX
