I called this one simply "L's". Repetively writing the letter L over and over has been something that I have done since highschool. It started when I saw a book that my mother had where she did the same thing, from her highschool days. I believe she did it to practice her cursive, I do it as a meditation. No, that is not a picture of my mother, just another found relative from ART chix Studio that I bought many years ago. The square type ink you see is just that, a small 1" square ink pad that I stamped lightly repeatedly.
This second page was inspired by a colleague I met while travelling a few weeks ago. He asked me where I wanted to be in five years. Oh so corporate. I couldn't answer. I once thought that I wanted to become a production manager, now in the Safety/Quality role, I'm thinking I'd like to persue that. Then, of course, there is the side of me that wants to start a family, and pursue my art. Decisions, decisions. I do need to start planning with the end in mind, I just need to figure out where that end is.
On a lighter note, a friend of mine (Karen's Blog) just bought this awesome bag. She is using it for her knitting-on-the-go supplies, but I think it would be a great option for mixed media as well. Let me know what you think, or if you have one. Seriously cool stuff.
love that top page~!ReplyDelete
You are amazing! Your work just has so many layers...so many. Awesome! and I love it!ReplyDelete
Once again wonderful, complex pages, love the lyrical feel to all those 'L's' funny I do something similar with the letter 't' in it's various forms, I think it's the rhythm of the movement that grounds you. Love that bag! It does look like it would be great for mixed media, keep us posted if you give it a try. I bought a Duci Sail Messenger bag that works pretty good for on the go.ReplyDelete

I love the way you put your colors together and make them vibrant as they are. I wish I could do that, mine get all muted. Beautiful stuff once againReplyDelete
Ran across an old burda pattern book for bridal/special occasions that I bought YEARS ago for $1.00 and decided to do this month's Gutter Girlz prompt in it and just a few minutes ago I decided I wanted to play with color...I'm chooooosing your L's page to play off of, just thought I'd let ya know!
