Hi.

I'm Cait Sherwood, a mixed-media painter who works into art journals.

I make art from the trash of the art I made before.

NYC - Get Messy Art Journal Meetup

I met some of my internet friends in real life and it was awesome!

Mike and I popped up to NYC for the weekend so I could meet up with my friends from Get Messy Art Journal.  It's surreal to meet internet friends because in a way you already know them pretty well yet you've never seen them in person.  It cracked me up because everyone was surprised with how tall I am (I am 5'10").  I look shorter in photos I guess.

We met up outside the public library and made art at a table, ate lunch, went to some stationery stores and then sat in another park for a few more hours.  

I definitely plan to do some more meet-ups!

While we were chatting and drawing/painting/gluing etc. I pretty much finished up the small journal I had begun for Minimalist Art Journal 2.0.  It's not very minimalist but that's fine, I am a natural maximalist.  I will have to make another small journal to complete the course.  Some pages are pictured below.

That's Sarah, Billie, me, Caylee and Julia in the back row.  Tiffany and Amy in the front row.

Amy and I exchanged our collaborative journals, which was exciting, but I will make another post devoted to that.
