Last weekend I hosted a group of friends for a workshop, painting on crinkled Masa paper. I remembered that the precursor to my teaching Muse Group workshops was a birthday party I had years ago. I invited my girlfriends to come and play art with me. I filled the dining room table with papers and brushes and glue. A couple of them were artists and the others knew how to be playful with art stuff. We had a blast, and when they left I had a pile of art gems from them which I hung in my studio for months after. Doing art with friends is simultaneously soothing and energizing.
So I enjoyed the day with Sandie and friends and this was a piece I worked on, using the crinkled Masa for collage. The dream catcher theme presented itself in the initial dripping of watercolor pigment over and around some thick gouache.
