Studio Series: 8 Stripe 3

8 Stripe 3 © Karen Thiessen, 2013
As I reimmerse myself back into my regular studio space and practice, I'm thinking about what is next in my designing and making. I have a ritual of washing my studio floor and dusting and clearing surfaces to prepare me and the studio for new work. The studio looks great, I feel energized and ready for a new season of work. Each year we are gifted with two new years: one in January, and another in September. Both are ripe with new possibilities.

The above 8 Stripe 3 collage on canvas is 8" square and about 1.5" deep. I used found and self-generated papers, acrylic medium, and thread. I see more collage and stitching in my practice.
