Learning Something New and Loving It!

I've been reading and madly taking notes (a 2 week library loan) from Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop by Serena Barton. It's kind of like bringing the feel of traditional haiku into mixed media artwork. I'm enjoying the idea of bringing together many layers, textures, and incising with an appreciation for both the very ordinary and the weathering of time. So looking forward to putting it to use.

What an interesting technique/style. Thank you for sharing your experience with Wabi-Sabi Art. I went to Serena Barton's website and was blown away by her work and inspired by her story. Her book looks like a very valuable resource. I think I'll go to the library and try to find it myself. Thanks again!

Here is a link to her website if anyone else would like to learn more about Wabi-Sabi Art:

I'm so glad I came across this book, Jeanmarie. Thank you for posting the link! I enjoy how she refers to her discoveries as "happy accidents".
