Fun mixed media project

A month ago I took up the challenge and participated in Amy Souza’s April Postcard Exchange.
I have wanted to work on some collages for a while and just be pure playful this was my chance ;P
Here are 4 cards that I finished and mailed this Saturday. Perhaps this is just the start.. ūüėČ

Friday lunch at Osha.

I just had a wonderful lunch together with my artist friend Jenny Wantuch at Osha’s on Second Street in San Francisco.
While eating spicy food & spring cleaning clogged brain cells.. constructed ideas came up about Open Studios and why we have them.. We also came up with many prosperous ideas of art projects that will come to bloom within a year or two.
Yes for pumpkin curry and curated, self portrait shows!

Fun Photograms!

Back into the darkroom and working digitally at the same time is kind of FUN!  I love it!

My new series that I have been working on for a while; ‘String of Life’ has been a playful game with intertwined threads of photographing digital images without a camera.. ¬† and I have a wish to rebuild cameras and scanners into new ‘pixel-capture-tool’.

This post by Photojojo is a great inspiration and I can’t wait to dive into this huge pool of possibilities!!
Just for fun you should check this out too ūüėÄ
