make our mark…

…”none but ourselves can free our minds”—-Bob Marley

Another year is winding down, the season has changed, it makes for a time of reflection.  As I get older, I find that I live more in the NOW.  I hear some of the noise out there…just a little…but I refuse to watch the news.  I used to listen to some alternative radio talk shows, but now, I’m not even doing that.  For the rest of the time that God grants me, I’m going to make ART.  I’m going to make art and be at peace with myself and all others who come across my path.  That is my goal.

I’m taking another class.  This one has really inspired me to start painting on canvas (or wood).  The instructor is Kate Thompson over at “The Trodden Path.” Click on groups and classes to find her classes.  The one I’m taking is called Painting and Composition: Mixed Media and Fabric Collage.  For me, it’s been one of the best classes I’ve ever taken online.

Here are some pages from my little sketchbook:

    Your first sketches is really cool, kind of graphic with a blue ball point pen. Nice work!
