Welcome to the New Site!

Hello Blog Subscribers and visitors! Welcome to the new BarbSkoog.com ~ a fresh website design to go with my new logo! Many thanks to those of you who had to re-subscribe to my blog. I'm thrilled to have you along for the ride ~ again!

My friend, Liz, was in the studio with me last week as we continued to work on our collaboration, New Ground, and I wanted to share a few work-in-progress pictures. This session focused mostly on working with the masks we have been creating that are inspired by cultural patterns and designs. These masks are then applied to paper or fabric and marbled. The resulting white space is yet another area for us to work in.

The pieces below are all on paper (Arches or Texoprint) and measure 20" x 25."
