Lesson 3 in Pam’s class has been all about Cubism…not as easy as one would think! I’ve always loved looking at cubist paintings – some of my old faves are of this genre: George Braque’s, Musical Instruments which you can see at

and Marc Chagall’s,  I And The Village which can be seen here:

Now, here’s mine, a work in progress, not yet sewn together, compositionally flawed as it is (it’s a lesson, not a masterpiece!

Janis. Final Lesson 3 Cubist Comp

I think I’ll go back to this piece to make a few changes after this class is over.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
