BLOGTOBERFEST - Day 6 - The Shape Of Things To Come

Some more collages to make their debut at Northside Makers Market on Saturday. These two measure around 12 x 24 inches.

I go through phases with my canvas shapes and sizes. I've been into rectangles and small pieces for a while now, but just last Friday went and bought some square canvases for some new ideas. Sometimes I go big with my work and sometimes I go small. It's funny how it chops and changes and I love just rolling with it. I love how the size and shape of the work is part of the creative expression of it.

I got a phone call yesterday to say that an order of large canvases I've been waiting on have arrived in store. I'm very excited. I haven't done much large scale work. It's both liberating and intimidating all at once. I have special plans for some big works that I've been dreaming about for a long time.

You know despite having some days filled with self-doubt and overwhelm, overall I feel really good about what I've achieved and where I'm heading in my creative life.


  1. Those are lovely! I can't wait to see more from you!

  2. do you want anymore wallpaper? I saw a few rools of textured stuff at Savers the other day, i'm happy to get it for you.

    They look fab, by the way.

  3. Delightful artwork, I look forward to not working on Saturdays in the near future, so I am able to go to Saturday markets again and see/purchase work such as yours...

  4. They are so cute. There is something appealing about small things. I really like those.

  5. So nice to hear your art is working out for you! Can't wait for Saturday to check it all out.

  6. I can't wait to see these on Saturday ... I love Collage.

  7. Great collages Cathy!!
    we all have days where we feel overwhelmed or uncertain about the direction to take - i know I doubt myself all the time - its human nature
    guess we just have to overcome that doubt somehow and enjoy the moment!!

    looking forward to see what you'll create with the large scale canvas!!

  8. i like the rectangle shape and I do love a letterbox.

    Very sweet- is tha a bit od curlypops in there too??

  9. I love EVERYTHING about your art work. So vibrant and always something new to see. What art should be.
