Another couple of weeks of being sick, tired, and stressed. I am sick and tired and stressed about being sick and tired and stressed so much!   I gotta build up my immune system so that I am not the pathetic victim of every virus and stressful event! I so have better things to do!

Here is my latest doodle.  It is related to what I am producing in my print class-- lines.
Here is the beginning of my Artist Statement for this print series. 

"Art History (http://arthistory.about.com/cs/glossaries/g/l_line.htm) defines line as “a basic element of art, referring to a continuous mark, made on a surface, by a moving point."  A line can “define a space, create an outline or pattern, imply movement or texture, and allude to mass or volume” I am interested in using a simple straight line to see what I can say." 

We'll see if I have anything worth saying.

Are you familiar with the Brooklyn Art Library? They  have many art projects including The Sketchbook Project.  I have just signed up for the 4 X 6 Exhange for the The Sunday Swap.  I will mail off some unique 4x6 inch art work to the Brooklyn Art Library and they will send me back one from someone somewhere in the world who participated. Pretty cool.  Deadline March 8.

Sujata Shah at the Root  Connection is a quilter after my own heart. She tried to throw away her scraps and just couldn't so she is making ...something...with them.  How about you?  I have more scraps in my stash than I have yardage.  I have about finished my quilt-as-you-go quilt and everything, front.back and middle, was in my scrap bins.

I have printing on my brain these day and look for it everywhere for inspiration in my own work.   Jane posted a beginning session of printing on cloth that was inspired by Jenny's day of printing on rice paper. Don't you love it when your friends share?
