On the left hand side of this spread, I was experimenting with Dura-lar Wet Media Film which is a clear acetate that has been specially treated to accept wet work (like markers and paints) without beading. I will most definitely being doing more with this product/technique in the coming year!
What with all the holiday chaos, art has been progressing even slower than usual but I'm looking forward to a time (after Christmas itself is finally over) that I can spend day after day painting & pasting, cuttting & collaging, doodling & dawdling around in my studio with not a care in the world. The last week or so of the year tends to be some of my most productive and exciting as I plot and plan for the new beginning that presents itself on January 1st. To that end, Lost Coast Post will close up shop until January 3, 2014. Since I began this endeavor in May 2006, I wonder every year if I want to continue blogging. I must say I have received many wonderful comments and emails as of late that have firmly decided the issue for me in advance of my year-end hiatus: Lost Coast Post will definitely be moving forward into 2014, my eighth year of blogging. Taking a wee break, however, will help me recharge my batteries and give me time to ponder where I go next. At the very least, I'll have time to create lots of new work to show.
I wish all my readers, near and far, a wonderful holiday season, filled with friends, family, and course, art! Thank you for gracing this space with your presence, your kind words, and unfailing encouragement! I hope to see you once again when a new year dawns!
