I Had Good Intentions!

I had great intentions after Artful Journey. I really did. I wanted to share the weekend with all its goodness and inspiration. But instead I fell into the dark hole that I sometimes fall into. I am working on crawling out but this has been a tough one. But the sun is shining, spring is here and there is always a new day.

I don't really have a lot of words right now so I w
ill just share some pictures of my art that I worked on during my amazing Artful Journey.

My work from Stephanie Lee's plaster class.
Plaster on burlap glued to a board.

Plaster gauze wrapped around cardboard.
More plaster applied over a stencil.

Pieces in progress

I had so much fun playing with the plaster. Taking such simple materials like plaster and cardboard and creating art. They were painted with inexpensive craft acrylics. I had not played with plaster since grade school when we poured it into milk cartons and then carved it. There is nothing like getting messy and making art.

There is also the magical place and the awesome ladies from this adventure. I will share those soon.

Happy Spring!
