Expressive Flowers

Favorite Paper Collage of 2022

Paper collage has really become one of my techniques. My inspiration comes from Eric Carle. Paper Collage has taught me to trust my process and learn about color.

That’s right I started my wild thoughts paper collage flowers project. I am almost done. I should create a video of all of them. The book will be out spring of 2023.

These pink roses are included in my list of colors too. I’ve been working on creating different shades of pink. These pinks made me realize how much I love pink. Blue is my favorite color but pink we are going places. The print is here.

Colorful letters spelling Alma Libre on a blue background

Alma Libre means free soul in Spanish. A free soul, a free spirit is what I strive to be.

Smile is my favorite because the swatch of pink in all the orange makes me smile. I can’t wait to put all of these blooms in a book. Oh right, that’s on my list for 2023 too.

How did I get the color so right? I did.

All I have to say is napkins, watercolor ink, and water. Oh and this reminds me of the summer art class I got to teach. I should have taken pictures of what my students created.

I do certainly feel love when I am creating.

Oh my, this mat is new. I have painted a lot this year. I’m excited about the ideas to come. This one is also in my shop.

I want to do more trees.

This butterfly was for #createwithcaqcoq. Going through my work today makes me want to flutter from idea to idea. Why not! If you’re interested in purchasing any prints please click here.

Thanks for reading and hope my lists are inspiring you to look and think about all the work you did this year.
