In these weeks of not feeling quite like myself, my attention span is scattered and my energy sporadic. But I haven't completely stopped making art. I'm just a lot less organized about it.
So here's a bunch of random stuff I haven't posted yet:
Six bookmarks for a swap with the FreakWerx group
Two postcards for the Parabolic Muse bookmark swap:
cutouts layered over my own marbled paper
Here's a bunch of index cards. I came to a grinding halt after July 5th. stressed over it for a while, then gave myself permission to be done if I wanted.
|ICAD 6/28/12 - messing about with a cosmetic sponge and the cap to my lipbalm|
|ICAD 6/29/12 - repeated the above motif and added more stamps and circles|
|ICAD 6/30/12 - this was the color scheme for summer of color that week. (another project I gave myself permission to let go of) washi tape and paint and magazine clipping|
|ICAD 7/2/12 - excellent advice on a very tired night. created with portfolio pastels and water and ink|
|ICAD 7/3/12 - continuing to play with image transfers after my RISD class, embellished with gel pens and something else|
|ICAD 7/4/12 - my take on fireworks. metallic ink over black gesso|
|ICAD 7/5/12 - cards stamped with gesso, rubbed with pan pastels, torn and glued together and covered with patterned tape|
That's where I stopped. But if I count the big pile of aborted and never finished backgrounds, I've got a whopping 24 more cards for the collection. Maybe I'll do something with them yet. Or maybe I'll just stamp retroactive dates on them and call it done.
This next painting was another swap for FreakWerx.
The object was to find a thrift store painting and add a monster, inspired by this link
I found this poorly cut canvas smooshed into a cheap wooden frame at a church rummage sale for a quarter. I added the three spidery looking things.
Next up: some postcards for Gina's resident mail call
this is a really worthy ongoing project and I strongly encourage you to participate
good heavens. this is already much longer than I expected, and there's more I haven't shown.
I'll spare you and try to keep my mojo going for another post tomorrow.
