Happy New Year (if a little late)

Posted on: January 9th, 2011 by jmbroekman


Here’s hoping that 2011 is full of all kinds of color and joy!

I really did mean to post something sooner than January 9th to wish everyone well. So much for good intentions – like getting holiday cards out on time. Ha! Same goes for New Years resolutions, so I say fuggedaboudit. No, in all honesty, at least in terms of my studio routine, 2011 has gotten off to a good start. In December, I toyed with challenging myself to do a drawing a day for the month of January. Does that count as a resolution? I’m not sure why, but somehow, the idea has gained a certain amount of traction. Nine days down and nine pieces of paper 22 x 30 inches are covered with some kind of marks or other. As the days roll by the drawings are definitely getting a little bit more interesting – though I do still question the wisdom of this plan. At some point, I promise, I’ll post some of those. In the meantime, though, you can see that I’m still picking up pieces and making collages out of them. The pieces above were all completed within the last month. Each one is about 5″ x 5″.
