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 30

This week I got to spend a week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina with my family.  

I love it way too much. I would love to spend a month or two out there to really go deep into painting.  The house we stayed in was oceanfront, so sitting on the bottom deck at a picnic table facing the ocean was the perfect painting environment.  You can hear the ocean and the wind keeps the bugs away.  I am thinking about going there in the off season.

Basically I just did some abstracted painting and drawing responding to the beach around me, mostly to shells and sand.  For some reason I was all about the unbleached titanium paint this week.  Every page has layers and layers of it.  I used a silicone spatula to spread it around and then I used pencils to draw/carve into it.

On the way home I managed to get to this annual bazaar and book sale that they have where I live.  Tables and tables of used books to look through.  I got some books to use for collaging.  The best was a book I found about making bobbin lace.  I have been gluing some of the pictures down into my sketchbook and then painting over top.
