A daily dose of collage creativity, in images, words and thoughts. Always remember, "Everything will be alright in the end...if it is not alright it must not be the End"

9th Outdoor Studio Exhibit-Studio Picks

Black and White....the beauty with Gray

This is number 5 of the sketches I'm in the process of creating for personal inspiration in other works,  8 more to go but who's counting...?  Me. 

Putting words and numbers in artwork can be fun to do for the artist but then it can be limiting to the amount of viewers.  Because art is so personal for the artist to created and for the collect to own, works like this with the word No many have a harder time finding a home.  

But why would I want to dis it before a larger piece would be created?   just thoughts that run through the head, other's words which when it comes down to the moment that these piece are created it truly is further from my mind.  More so it's about making peace and sense with the inner feelings and the outer circumstances.  The unity, the connections, the simply just making sense of it all. 

I try not to watch the news or listen to it....but it seep in from others opinions about it...What I hear and is it the truth? ....it's to thick to waste time with.   So as I ramble about making sense....I was preparing dinner and brought my sketching paper, magazine, glue stick, sand paper and scissors to the kitchen and pulled the papers of black and white plus others that would fit from my collections of magazine papers. After dinner I sat and did the collage sketch. 

I was thinking of Quads too and what to do differently in these sections, how to keep them separate but yet merge them together.

So Yesterday afternoon in the studio

This is Lilac Bend
It's a Mini Abstract Landscape I put together yesterday and shot a video while doing.  But the video's got to be load and will be saved for a on line class some day. 

This is another one of my 13 assignment sketches.  I put it together last night.  I do enjoy these ones when you can turn them around after you created them and they would look good upside down too. 

I call it Directional Journey.

Made a dud today

Been working with this one and just was not happy with the color salmon..though I like the color just not the color combo together..I was challenging myself to pick colors I don't use and put together and well it's a dud...going to live it in the assignment through so I can see what I don't like.  lol. 

A 8 x 8 in process...going to let it dry with the leave stamps on the surface I want to make sure it's dried well as I'll move into glazing next.

Collage Sketch #3

#3 Dance of Energy 

I have now 10 of these to do, because it's an assignment I'm giving myself...and who would have thought how purposeful they would become. A place to be with grace. There size is about 8 x 8 like my Tack Down Tuesday pieces.  Again and again I'll probably repeat myself but these piece are going to be my references...I'll create papers like what I see and assemble with intuitiveness in a larger surface.
