Revisiting the archives, charting Plein Air days, hoping to get outside again with my paints and document my new surroundings. My dear art friend Lynnette took this photo of me on Bainbridge Island, 2013…

In a couple more months I’ll be sharing the results of work on the big painting commission I mention in the recent WordPress Photo Challenge: PLACE IN THE WORLD
Last weekend I collaborated with my multi-talented friend, Annie – WordPress blog: CURIOUS MIND GARDEN
Annie recently took an online poetry class. The final project required collaboration with another artist. She wrote a poem from SUNDAY BRUNCH – a gouache painting in my website Gallery – and I made the following painting from one of her new poems: “Self Portrait as Plate Spinner”
It’s 8 x 10″, using gouache (“goowash”, an opaque watercolor) & Prismacolor pencils. I work things out in stages on tracing paper – first pencil, then committing to the lines by inking over them with a Micron pen – transferring images to the final paper using a light table, so I’m not having to sketch over and over and erase directly on the final paper.
Have a great weekend and week ahead…involving a collaboration?! ~ Pierr
