  • Marbling paper

    I'm a firm believer that in order to be a happy and productive artist, I need to remain a student all my life.  The process of discovery using new materials is exhilirating and energizing, and it often jumpstarts me when I'm feeling sluggish in the studio.  This was one of those moments.  These sheets were marbled using diluted oil paint in a baking pan. They went on to be the backdrop for pieces (below) for a show with the Philadelphia Hand Lettering Society at Gibbs Connors' Studio.
