What I thought I'd do turned into a collage with watercolor and crayon (primary grade school technique of choice). I was simply meandering with this on the back porch with a window open, listening to wind chimes. Perfection.
A page that was created in between decisions. I'm thinking about doing some work around the theme of money, this is the page used to explore some of the other concepts that money has infiltrated. I needed definitions for the words in green to make certain I knew (at least) what Webster knew. When I hit a bump in my progress, I did a little more work on this page. It was respite and allowed me to breathe between some of the ideas.
The common-place fascinates me, it's part of why I do collage, the bulk of materials in printed matter is nearly overwhelming. After I get done juggling all the ephemera, the photos and prints stand as a sign for something more important than they are seperately. Or, that's the intent.
In the journal. Posts will be light for a month or so as I'll be keeping cats in order with a new pup. Kima is her name (yes, from the character in "The Wire") and I'm hoping for a smooth transition. I may get a chance to do some small, quick work. If I do, it will be here, with pics of Kima, of course.
Postings have been sparse lately. Piles do pile up and life has to be taken care of. This is a journal entry from early September that just never made it over to the blog. I'm still playing here with negative space and really attracted to emptiness. Then theres Hypatia... I decided to go with 16 squares rather than 9 and there's barely a place in that to take a breath . When I take the photos I'll post them here.
