I have been out in my yard collecting bits and
pieces to make art.
I have a strong belief that we have an abundant
amount of materials in our homes
and environment to make art.
If you need inspiration, pick up a bag and
walk around your house or go outside and
start collecting things you see laying around.
Your bag will be full in no time!
My mom just got back from Alaska.
Some of the trash from her trip made it
into my collection bag.
Collage materials!
I hope to sit down and create something soon.
Picking up my camera right now fits my life
style but my hands are inching to hold a
a pair of scissors or a paint brush.
We are getting back into the swing of school and after school activites.
I'm also trying to get involved with the local
artist association. (Having time issues with that one)
The really big news is that I'm working on getting
myself studio space. I'm tired of my family living in the middle of
my work space -- anywhere and everywhere-- inside my small house.
As for my family.....they can't wait to box up my art supplies and
send me out the door!


  1. Gorgeous fall colors Jill! And ideas and spirit! I wish we lived closer, I'd love to come collage with you! Have fun.....jane

  2. Nice hive bits. There is a huge assortment of goodies in nature and the trash. YOu always seem to be able to whip them together beautifully. xox

  3. There is beauty every where, all you have to do is look for it.

  4. I agree that we need to look no further than outside our door but then it is great to add some other man/woman made materials.

  5. Congratulations on getting a dedicated studio space! It makes a huge difference.

  6. Love the pattern of the wasp nest! You're right - we have so much already around us! Having a space will be so inspirational for you!
