ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Lest you think

Lest you think I'm doing nothing every single day, leading me down the slippery slope to (clearly) no blogging, the digital abstract above is a piece I could only have made after receiving an excellent tutorial on the manipulation and use of brushes from the lovely, good-humored and patient, Roben-Marie Smith, of Paperbag Studios. She not only stepped me through the nitty-gritty, she also created the fabulously grungy brushes used in my piece. It does include another sneak peek, (or should I get jazzy, and manipulate the word pique?) of a swell project for which more details will be forthcoming. . . so Stay Tuned!
And up next on Ragtags Studio Central, a not-to-be-missed new book on the Business of Art ---
