An oversized card, this drawing is still probably bigger than the early ones. The scraps from a book had the words suddenly and feathers, but the feathers didn't survive the glue stick, but it's still the name. Really liked doing a color background with acrylic paint and a liquid gesso.

Well, I'm back. The beginning of March was fabulous! I had a piece in a members' exhibit that opened the night of March 6 and that was exciting. Then I attended a two-day workshop in mixed-media collage over the weekend. This was wonderful and very stimulating. I did several pieces during the class and one small one I really like just after. And then the pandemic started shutting everything down. Somehow I've only managed to do drawings as birthday cards, one in May and one in June, since. Until now.
The new drawing continues the previous numbering without counting anything from the time of the workshop. The beginning lines were from my memory of drawing drooping daffodils in the spring but quickly took their own direction. The collage uses parts of a page from my mother's accounting textbook, some from her elementary reader and a little from a nature magazine. The title is in the reader text but it could also have been "fear of trouble." The base is 14" x 11" Bristol paper that is sturdy and bright. I used ink, acrylic paint, colored pencil, and watercolor.

I did start another drawing this time using a sheet of 14 x 11" Bristol paper from the classroom. I've now bought a pad of this type as it seems really good. Here's a peek at the beginning of the new one.

After finishing two pieces the same day I started a new one in class that just grew seemingly on its own ideas. It is so far a narrow horizontal image. I don't know where it will go from here as it seems almost complete.
