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 36

The paintings I am working on deepened a bit this week.  

Fabric and quilting/patchwork imagery is seeping in more than ever--fabric prints and also the patterns of the patchwork, and also just intuitive stuff that comes up while I am drawing from those patterns.

Here are some paintings I have been working on.  I took photos along the way so you can see how certain paintings developed.  I often end up liking the "before" images but I am always learning when to stop a painting.

This is an old book I am using for collage scraps.  I also use it to receive extra paint, like a palette.

I am excited for the work coming out of me these days.  I am ready to make work for another art show.  Now, I just need to find one.
