Lesson Two - Wendy B.

When I was a kid, I never got in trouble because I was so afraid of "getting in trouble." I'm pretty much a rule-follower, I guess.  I will have to work doubly hard to find the REBEL inside me. I love some of the ideas I've learned in this class--cutting up unsuccessful projects to make new art is my favorite.  I made my fourth expanded square just today, (which I titled Circles & Clams), a couple weeks after the others. It didn't turn out as I'd envisioned because it was difficult to cut the shapes with an exacto knife, but it is leaning in the right direction, especially for just a few minutes work while I was also on the phone.
