January is a month for catching up . . . and branching out! This year I’m experimenting with new media as well as textiles, but of course can’t resist integrating some of my previous artwork in new ways. I’m a member of The Sketchbook Challenge, where January’s theme was “highly prized.” Here I’ve collaged a digital image of my puppy (which I’ve also used in the past as a photo emulsion silk-screen) over a background of gesso and acrylic paints and highlighted with wax crayon, art pens, & markers. As you can tell from the journal text, he was a bit of a wild child!
