I spent yesterday collaging images of flesh. I also drew for hours and played with surface on paper using a conte stick. Not enough time has been spent plonking images on paper. Everytime is a reminder that there are ways of working that require less.

There are about 30 little drawings that can be played with in another way today. The tiny collages opened up another way to see colour and palette. Not all are useful but some are.

Today is going to be a busy day in the studio. I have to meet a guy from a local foundry and my photographer. The Surface Design meeting is tonight and preparation needs to be made for the
Vancouver Guild of Fabric Arts on Thursday.

But an hour or two will be spent with gouache, torn paper, threads, scraps, stolen images, my images, cardboard and the glue bottle. Another hour will be spent burning my small globes and experimenting with colour and the emulsions.

It is back on the horse to see where whe takes me!
