Let me just enjoy this moment. I’ve held on to this texture for a long time…until recently. When one looks up at the bright night sky, this is what I feel and what I believe. I didn’t have a plan. I just painted. I love when that happens.
I don’t know why it’s taken me awhile to get back in the swing of things and finish my book.
I’m proud of my work. I’m proud of my ideas. This weekend I’ll be working on hand lettering and scanning in the files.
In the meantime I’ll listen to Seth Godin and research all this ISBN and barcode stuff.
These textures of past projects are looking good. It felt good to hold the paper in my hand and sporadically feel a horse or a turtle emerge. I believe I needed to feel curiosity in this moment.
I have to admit, collage work is a lot harder than I thought. I suppose there is a big reason why Eric Carl painted his textures on tissue paper. Tissue is probably a lot easier to cut than 140 Ib. watercolor paper. I just painted all of these lovely colors and they make the perfect animals. I want to demonstrate that our world and everything is beautlfully, colorfully connected.
I can’t believe my week off has come and gone. I do feel a sense of renewal, motivation for lots more projects. I cut up squares of various textures so I could transform them into letters. Wow I love when this happens…
