Travel Dreams Again?


sprayed acrylics with leaf and screen stencils and collage, 10 X 11″

In the last Saturday workshop we diluted acrylic paints and sprayed them over leaves, grasses, string, tags, and other stencils. The spray bottles clogged up and the spray was sometimes more of a splatter, but somehow the spray always seems to liven up the paper surface for surprising effects we could not get otherwise.

When I wrote about the piece above, I made the connection to those tags you put on your baggage when you travel.  Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time planning my next big travel adventure this summer to Ireland and the International Urban Sketchers Symposium in Manchester, England.  Can you see a bit of Ireland in my choice of pattern and color?
