June 7, the opening for the "Pleased To Meet You" show at TAG Art Gallery, is right around the corner! As I wrap up my pieces, I thought I'd throw out a couple of sneak peeks here n' there. This first one, entitled Doodledots 01, was a lot of fun to do. I just love organizing circles! I started off by collecting all sorts of paper bits and then went through them, deciding which ones to include. Then, I start arranging them. Once I've got 'em where I want 'em, I glue them down and let them set overnight. Once they're dry, I start doodling & drawing on the circles. Although this piece is pretty small (10X10 inches), I'm also working on a much larger doodledot piece that's 48X48 inches (which won't be in the show at TAG). The circles that make up the larger piece are each 2.5 inches. When I start applying the circles onto the larger piece, I'll take pics along the way and will show the piece in progress. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks soon!
