From the Doodler:

I finished work today, and was ready to do my daily doodle, when I realized that I'd left most of my doodle supplies at my Open Art Studio yesterday.  At my apartment, I had a file of scrap paper, an exacto knife, and some glue; I didn't want to go out again, so I made do.  You could say, I was saved by the Scrap Angel.  

The scraps forming Scrap Angel came from an afternoon in Tucson over a year ago, when I took my friend, Tara, to the art store to get her some watercolors.  We messed around with them on a sheet of paper, using a relief, some iridescent colors, and some glazing, and I ended up with the sheet of paper we used.

The energy forming Scrap Angel is pure Open Art Studio energy -that fearless, creative freedom born inside a space filled with people of all ages making daring leaps of art.

Before every studio day, I slightly question my sanity, and yet, with Scrap Angel watching over the day, it always seems to work out. Yesterday, we had eight people, age 10-67, painting, collaging, sewing, drawing, designing, doing calligraphy, and making stained glass art! Thank you, Scrap Angel, and thank you yesterday's fearless artists. I hope to see you all again soon!

I can't resist sharing some photos of my inspiration for this one:
