Hi.

I'm Cait Sherwood, a mixed-media painter who works into art journals.

I make art from the trash of the art I made before.

Week 49

Week 49

  • So much socializing this week!  Hung out with my family.
  • Watched the Gilmore Girls revival.  I wanted closure and I got none!  That is all I have to say.
  • Got to visit with Stephanie, Sage & Savi in Virginia.  Sage and I used crayons to create the drawings below, which I then colored in with white watery-gouache.
  • The Get Messy Season of Gifts begins this week, so I have been using lots of old tissue paper in my art journals.
  • Anyway, here is my work for the week!
  • I simply want to make a dark flowery thing!  I preach A L L O W I N G so I am trying to let myself do whatever I want and ignore the thoughts that come up like "that isn't enough."  Ha.
  • Discovery: gouache on tissue paper looks great, and once dried you can paint it down flat onto paper with matte medium.
  • I have been working into the book pictured above for 5 years!  I took a break in there and didn't touch it for a few years, but it looks like I may actually finish it soon.
