Return of the Centipede
The centipede returns, marching across the cover of this hand painted journal. I thought this little square book was finished and had set it aside, but the urge to add the critter to the cover kept nagging at me.
The pages of this book include a variety of interesting papers. This will be a fun journal for someone to fill! Available online at my Etsy store.
There are two things in my life that have been constant, no matter what: art and the need for unstructured time to play. I am a compulsive maker-of-things who believes that every day must have some time set aside to feed the creative spirit. This would include making art, looking at art, reading about art, experimenting/playing with materials, learning new skills, and general studio art-play. To support my habit and spread the joy, I was an art educator for 38 years. I'm now retired from public education, but still enjoy teaching occasional workshops locally. I will try to share some of my adventures in both art and play here in this space.
