Serena Barton's Blog

Welcome to my new blog! It's also my first ever blog, so bear with me. I'm excited to have a space to share information, ideas, and images.

The January 21st workshop at Art of Your Life was a lot of fun and participants produced amazing pieces! Watch this blog to see some of the lovely and innovative collages that grew out of the "Layers of Memory/Layers of Imagination" collage workshop. Many thanks to all those who participated for your enthusiasm and courage to try new things and work from your hearts!

Individual art coaching students and Art of Your Life Group members have also created wonderful work, from paintings to altered books, Dia de los Muertos Shrines, and clay figures
Today's featured artist is Mary Stillwell. Mary has been an inspiring and enjoyable companion as she has met with me for art coaching. She is developing her own style of icons and is a most passionate and exciting painter. She is moving out of state, but we are determined to continue to work together by email. Here is a sample of her work in progress:

Here are some pictures of the office/studio:

I had no idea blogging could be so much fun...
