I-F: Plain


It's plain to see that love is in the air!

This is going to be a wedding present for a friend of mine.

I'm really enjoying the combination of acrylics and collage. This has collaged bits of an old book and also Japanese washi paper. I'm pretty happy with it - I just hope the newlyweds are too!

I've started doing little colour sketches for my paintings in my moleskine before i do the real thing - it helps me think about how i want to use colour in the piece and i find it really helpful... thought you might like to see..


This piece is also going to be the last addition for my folio for the NY SCWBI conference. (I leave in exactly a week! and still so much to do!)

I'm sure your friend will love the present, this is very beautiful. You do wonderful things with color and design. And I really liked seeing your sketch, it is always fun seeing how artists get to the finish piece.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in NYC. I have to send you my cell phone number by email so we can make sure we'll meet at the conference. :-)

Hi Kim, do you want to share a picture so we can recognize each other at the conference? I'm really bad reading those little name tags. If you want to, you can email it to me. That is if you want to.. no problem if you don't :o)
