Have been hitting some bad creative blocks and not getting much done….oh well. I can only go with it. The more I fight the more I stand still, stuck. Here is my Crazy Amigo Challenge for this week.
The basis for the swirls are gum wrappers…see my earlier post in February. The background is grey gesso. I added Japanese paper tape and additional swirls with a Sharpie poster marker. The little people often pop up in my art work…little folk playing, working, hanging out. Thanks for looking!
My art journal entry for Red:
This is done with a photo I took printed as a transparency, fabric scrap, a painted mini-tag, and acrylic paints.
This week at CBH it’s a free challenge, and at Crazy Amigo it’s “Brand New Start.”
This page was initially done for 12/28/09 Mixed Media Monday challenge of “Your least favorite color”. I later decided it needed reworking….a brand new start, if you will. The original–here’s a thumbnail:
was from a photo years ago of an event I have mixed feelings about. I decided to alter the piece to be about an event I recall with true joy, my wedding. I first journaled about the old event on the left hand side–I wrote with permanent marker down the page, then horizontally, and then gessoed over it. The ghostly dancer is from a hand cut stencil I made. The actual color is a bit greener than it is here, but I am pleased with the outcome. Thanks for looking!
