Talk about Textures!

Standard

So here we go… it’s my first college course in (cough, cough) FIVE years!  Better late than never, as they say… I am thrilled to be back in the virtual classroom studying the fundamentals of Digital Design! This is my debut as a blogger, and it will be my first time working in Photoshop, Illustrator and Premier Pro.  Just in this week of class, I am experiencing new revelations in design concepts through our discussion of Wassily Kandinsky’s “Composition VII”, and I love to see how one artist’s vision can provoke such varying impressions of his work.

Yesterday, I ventured out on a field trip to celebrate 100 artists who were honored by the Maryland State Arts Council.  The reception was held in Baltimore at the American Visionary Art Museum.  I have passed this building on the way to other museums and always wondered what dwelled within, so this was a terrific opportunity!  While  I was only able to survey the works within the walls of the Jim Rouse Visionary Center, I peeked into the main building which started my planning for a day trip with my kids once the school year ends.  I am posting some of the pictures I took last night for your viewing pleasure.  They are just too much fun to keep to myself!  This is my Fitztopia…  Enjoy!!!
