free fall in monotype design and blog update

"are you sure my hips don't look big?"
I am in a beautiful free fall with monotype. Like a happy kid, I am playing with design, using brayers to lay ink onto plates, scraping off ink, painting it back on, and doing all kinds of fun and uncomfortable things. "Free fall" sounds a little out of control, so that makes it the perfect phrase to describe my feelings.

Our assignment for tonight's class: create some design patterns with the figure to put the figure into a space. Above you see some of my sketched ideas. Of course, being the over achiever that I am, I have five pages of ideas!

I have just completed a little facelift for my blog and I hope you will enjoy some of the new things I've added. When you browse around, you'll see I've added a spot for sketchbook sketches, titles of art books I am currently reading, and a quote I read and wanted to think about. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Like the new "look" of your blog. The figures look like fun. It will be interesting to see how it goes.

Hi Katherine;

I like your updated blog. How do you like the Joan Mitchell book? I learned so much about her art and life and have been along time fan of her work.
