this is the last drawing that i did last week... after that i decided i just didn't have the drawing zing. it became clear that my little boat had floated into the creative doldrums. usually when this happens i fret and fuss (and fret and fuss some more), but this time i decided to just do whatever the heck came to me... no worries about it 'looking good' or being 'a painting', or anything...
acrylic paint and oil pastels on muslin
first i got the stencils out...
acrylic paint and caran d'ache crayon on muslin
this one was done with extremely diluted acrylic paint on a wet page - everything suddenly becomes mysterious! the brownish lines are from a dripping wet caran d'ache crayon...
i wrote down words that i read or came to me... (parts of two pages here)
oil pastels and acrylic paint on moleskine pages
i did a painting thinking about the way jeane paints...
acrylic paint and glued down image on moleskine page
more words and i used that nice picture that had been laying around.
image transfer, acrylic paint, colored pencil, and oil pastels on moleskine page
words, an image transfer, and a pogo print of my pink grapefruit/cranberry juice.
acrylic paint and oil pastel on canson mi teintes paper
and for the collaborative project i'm doing things i wouldn't do otherwise - like use this shoe stencil...
so here i am, galluping right on through my moleskine. after taking out the centerfolds from the last two signatures (to make room for the muslin), i'm not that far from being done, which (as those of you who could watch the video know), i'm happy about.
stonehenge paper - a couple of people asked me about it a while back. roz has done a nice review of it here.
beautiful week to you!
