The crayon resist is nudging me lately. So are these compositions that have a little of everything so they're showing up more often in my art journal. Photo is from Charlie Beckwith's collection but shows my mother in an honor society photo. Collage: marker, crayon, watercolor, papers, photo.
Triangles appeal to me this month so they ended up as a page in my journal/sketchbook. The Red Poet is a fellow I met at an art reception and he seemed to need a flag. Collage: papers, acrylic, tissue, text and marker. On the back of this I wrote a message for the journal part:
For a journal exchange. The theme for this one is "call and response". Papers, color pencil, acrylic, marker, watercolor and crayon. Words provided were "the secret of art" and I responded with, "is doing". But after spending a bit of time thinking about it, the whole thing should read, " the secret of art is doing art". And there you have it, those of you who are seeking that particular secret!
A small bit of play. The papers collect and sometimes mingle and then I pull out the glue. Most of this was floating around my table and needed to be put together. Sometimes the paper will tell you what it wants to do and I just follow their directions.
My journal work is creeping slowly into my art work. This page works in the margins and saves the interior for text. I've since painted over the some of the hatching, it was too tight and didn't fit in the over-all composition.
