An assortment of collage papers that were the beginning of a 'monoprint collage' workshop with Jane Davies.
It's a six week full-on course that I can highly recommend. I've found it challenging, frustrating, but ultimately satisfying.
We are only at week five, and I can't wait to see what the final week has in store. Here are a few of my images from this week.
There's always more to learn.
That said, I have again had a painting accepted as a finalist in the Lethbridge 10,000, and one in the online gallery for the duration. SIXTH year in a row. I certainly get a gold star for trying.

Seems like the blog is last on the to-do list when paint and paper are calling.
I certainly understand the "blog is last" attitude - I get caught up in life and sketching and time for blogging just gets away from me. I actually noticed a while ago that you hadn't posted anything in a while.....ReplyDelete
These are great! I just loved taking Jane's classes - you've certainly absorbed her layering and mark making lessons - they make excellent backdrops for your fun collages!
By the way, we've made plans to head to your neck of the woods (Australia!) next year. We'll be in Sydney for 5 days in February. Don't know if it's reasonable for you to come to town for a day (not sure exactly where you are), but it would be SO fun to meet you. Or, depending on where you are (it's a big country), maybe we rent a car and come to you?? Just thinkin' of possibilites......
Fabulous art Jo!! Glad to know it's the art that keeps you away so long but I do miss you. You have done such a marvelous job using what you learn from Jane's classes. And congrats on having your art selected again for the Lethbridge challenge!ReplyDelete
So THAT'S where you've been, exciting work as always, Jo. I'm taking Jane's mono print collage workshop this weekend here on Whidbey Island. Wish you were here!ReplyDelete
OH fabulous to see some of your artwork again!ReplyDelete
The third photo is so WOW...it looks like it has citra solv papers included.
What a great class with such fine results.
Congrats also on being selected as a finalist...no surprise there :-)
I have missed you here Jo!
I am SO glad you posted. I have missed you and your art. I understand it's hard to be online all the time when paper and paint are calling, but I was simply delighted to see these latest works.ReplyDelete
Your monoprints are out of this world. I can't seem to get them right, even though I keep trying. You have truly mastered not just the monoprints, but collaged monoprints.
Loved the entries you have included for the Lethbridge challenge. I can see why you are a finalist. Your art always impresses me.
BTW, please don't stay away too long. Your art friends miss you (me included).
Fab work Jo. Love the paintings. xoxReplyDelete
Oh wow! Congratulations, fabulous work. I'm really loving your monoprint collages, especially the middle one. The colors are really speaking to me. I'd like to take a class from you, actually. :)ReplyDelete
I totally get what you mean about the blog; I love doing it, but there are so many other things that must come first... Your monoprint collages are really quite beautiful - I especially love that second one! Congrats on getting in the show; looking at the two pieces here, it's no wonder that you got in!ReplyDelete
Gorgous as always! Love your paintings! Congrats on being selected again for the Lethbridge challenge. You deserve it, Jo!ReplyDelete
This way my friend Wesley Virgin's story begins in this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL VIDEO.ReplyDelete
You see, Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he unveiled hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to get whatever they want.
As it turns out, these are the exact same tactics many celebrities (especially those who "come out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become wealthy and famous.
You probably know that you use less than 10% of your brain.
Mostly, that's because most of your BRAINPOWER is UNTAPPED.
Maybe that conversation has even taken place INSIDE your very own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain around seven years back, while riding an unregistered, beat-up bucket of a vehicle without a license and with $3 on his banking card.
"I'm absolutely fed up with living paycheck to paycheck! Why can't I become successful?"
You've taken part in those conversations, ain't it right?
Your own success story is waiting to happen. You just need to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.

You should see how my colleague Wesley Virgin's story starts in this shocking and controversial VIDEO.ReplyDelete
You see, Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he found hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to get anything they want.
THESE are the exact same tactics lots of celebrities (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and the greatest business people used to become rich and successful.
You've heard that you use less than 10% of your brain.
That's mostly because most of your BRAINPOWER is UNCONSCIOUS.
Perhaps that expression has even occurred INSIDE your own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind about seven years back, while driving an unlicensed, garbage bucket of a vehicle with a suspended driver's license and with $3 in his bank account.
"I'm absolutely frustrated with going through life check to check! When will I finally succeed?"
You've taken part in those questions, right?
Your success story is going to start. You just have to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.

As reported by Stanford Medical, It is indeed the SINGLE reason women in this country get to live 10 years more and weigh an average of 19 KG lighter than we do.ReplyDelete
(And realistically, it has totally NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret diet and really, EVERYTHING about "HOW" they are eating.)
P.S, I said "HOW", not "WHAT"...
