I’ve just completed my third art piece around the saying ‘This is impossible to read but it was fun to make.’ My inspiration came from watching Lesson two for the 2020: Pictures and Words year long class hosted by Carla Sonheim. The teacher for this class has us doing something very different but I was mesmerized by her glasses and decided to use her as my subject for this drawing. Thanks Martha.
Today I finally got around to starting my first assignment for the year long on-line course called 2020: Words and Pictures. Carla Sonheim’s first lesson was taking a phrase and creating at least three different art pieces using any medium we wanted. The phrase is:
‘This might be impossible to read but it was fun to make.’
I kept writing the phrase from the centre of a circle and just kept going and going, around and around. In the end I decided to add some collage detail and write the phrase one more time.

My trip to London allowed me to take in numerous museums and art galleries. One of the things that I saw numerous examples of was abstract art. Here are just a few. Maybe you’ll recognize some of them.
Most of these paintings came from the Tate Modern. The first sculpture was outside the Museum of Modern Design.
