It was the perfect Birthday present. Amazing art in a beautiful new building with my husband and kiddos. It was glorious. The work there for the inaugural show "America is Hard to See" is outstanding and more inclusive of women and minorities than ever before. So much good work to see.
This piece by Mark Bradford is so exciting to me. It's paper he found on the street and collaged into this intricate map of colors and textures. I aspire to create something this great and I'm very interested in the endless layering of paper and the sanding down of it to reveal interesting combinations and relationships. Read More

I'm in a collage state of mind lately. All of a sudden, it seems to be everywhere! Collage is my go-to method for creating quick compositions and keeping the creativity fresh. It's the way I have fun and play and it's something I often do in my sketchbook. This week though, I've been working a bit bigger in anticipation of a local collage workshop I'll be doing soon.
