Fall is here in New Mexico- cooler temps in fact we have had some down right cold weather for here- a couple of nights in the teens. The cottonwood trees along the Rio Grande are turning yellow and the cranes have returned.
I have been taking more online classes. Sometimes they are hard for me to keep up with as we have been dealing with some health issues here- so there have been a lot of appointments. But I do find time to be in the studio. Making art grounds me- it helps me cope with stress and it feeds my soul.
One of the online classes I am taking is called 2019 Year of the Collage. It is a year long class and I have enjoyed the three teachers for this class- very different approaches to collage- the lessons have stretched me in good ways and I have met some wonderful people in the class.
I will share the first of two Accordion books I have made for this class.
This is the inside of the first one- it is 35" long and 6" tall
