Stirring Things Up
This is my collage for the day. Its feeling is in keeping with the one that I posted yesterday, the same papers, the same thoughts of being suspended between seasons.
In the studio, I hauled out three panels with no idea in mind whatsoever, and it shows. It’s been so long since I smeared paint around that I literally didn’t know where to begin. So I began anyway. It isn’t quite fun yet.
Texture is the thing I love most, so I created some of that. And not texture from acrylic mediums or sand or any of that, but paint! Just paint right out of the tubes. I have made a real mess, but it’s a beginning. Who knows where it will lead? Notice the painted papers in the picture as well. I used those to clean off my brayers. Those will be thrown in the collage papers stack.
Obviously this is way more color than I’m accustomed to. It will get toned down in time. But I had to get something started. Sometimes you just have to do something, even if it’s wrong.
I hope you’re doing something and that it’s fun above all!
