These photos are almost a year over due, but I’m trying to get back on the blogging wagon and this post was actually already started, I just never added any text!
I had the pleasure of working under the teaching of Jennifer Mercede at the Makerie last spring and to learn the joy of doodling. We spent the morning losening up with lots of blind contour drawings outside. As well as just some free doodle exercises.
This painting now hangs in my dining room as a reminder of what I can create when I get out of my own head and just play.
One of my hopes in attending the Makerie was to meet a creative friend. Below, Cara Harjes and I pose the final evening, thrilled to have made our connection. Cara has proved to be an inspiration to me and I couldn’t be more happy to have her in my creative circle.
