I am getting back to work slowly...
summer it seems is immediately upon us..
the pool opened in perfect time to the soaring heat
and simply everything is in bloom..
so there are so many things calling my name
and so much to do...
|5 layers of Italian collage at the top and layers waiting to be pressed at the bottom|
wips.. and scraps
are all I have to show right now
gathering all the papers around me like a sea
of cellulose and choosing the scraps that resonate with me..
call out to me...
|decollage pieces of paper scraps to be pressed between tissue..|
gathering decollage scrap rolls
and bits of Italian script...
I never tire of playing with ephemera...
of bringing the unlikely pieces together to create new relationships on
paper... rough and unpolished against slick and beautiful
and delicate against cardboard...
on one of the pieces of paper... I had written:
Your whole idea about yourself is borrowed... borrowed
from those who had no idea about themselves...
|painted papers and transfers... with Italian collage piece above... wips|
a quote that changed my whole direction in life
and put me on my art path..
I hope gentle reader that you have time this week
to enjoy yourself
and may the the summer time, sun shine down upon you!
