Daily Paintings

Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 1.18.16 PMI’ve mentioned here before that I try to do daily drawings or paintings. Sometimes, well let’s be honest, most of the time it does not happen. If I have more than one job on my desk I don’t want to spend any time on other things. Above are a few recent explorations where I am playing with collage. I stole some of my son Henry’s tissue paper (he’s not that into collage anyway).  To be completely honest with you, I’m in the midst of something. I’m not sure how to label it, but I’m feeling a bit stuck creatively. So I think it’s good to simply play around with materials that are not my usual go-tos. We’ll see if playing around can help me out of my rut. Follow my daily work and play on Instagram if you like and have a stellar weekend.

    These are gorgeous! I have been experimenting with collage in painting lately and it feels exciting. Lately, I am finding that just sitting down and making a mess eventually brings exciting results. Selfishly, I must say, it is a bit comforting to know that someone at your level gets in ruts too:) Can’t wait for your books next year! I already know which moms I will be giving them too.

    Hey Frances,

    Glad you are experimenting too. Such a good idea to stretch yourself. I think all artists feel this way, even the ones who appear to be doing incredible things. It’s really hard to put yourself and your work out there all of the time and as much as I love commercial projects I think it’s important to test new waters. So glad you like the look of my upcoming books. I hope in person they resonate with you. They’re up for pre-order soon! Stay tuned.
