What is happiness? The Chinese character says it all. It is made from 4 words, God, one, man and garden. When we are one with God, in our garden, we can find happiness. This one is a little smaller than all the others, its a 12 x 12. Now its time to work big again and with some new figures!

After looking at this one for a while I decided it needed to change a little. I like it better and it is ready to go!

I really like how colorful these are and working with the abstract shapes. I am going to do some experimental collage work in the next ones, getting ready for the show this Friday!

After working on this piece for months, and changing it over and over, I decided to let it rest. I am calling it Transformation, not just because of where it has been, but it seemed like a good representation of the past months in my life!

Book workshop

Posted in Uncategorized on June 12, 2012 by karenwilliams

I went to a really cool workshop over the weekend, it was on book making. Roberta Lavadour taught it and I really want to make more books now! She was a great teacher. You can see some of her work at http://www.missioncreekpress.com

Here is what I came home with

She taught us different bindings, so this is a sample book. After taking the class I knew I would forget everything I learned, so I made a small book yesterday to review the steps, and as I did that I wrote then in the book I made at the workshop. I think I will make this a workshop notebook! I will be doing a clay workshop in July!
