" Cartouche 2" measures 20" x 20" canvas, mixed media, acrylic,fabric trim, paper collage and oil pastel. I can't even begin to ask why? I remember painting one square which led to another and on and on. Exploration into painting in a new old way has been a challenge. I played with crackle compound around the edges and I did like creating narrow rows of little squares. The collaged images are from old work fragments. It's as if I'm traveling down a road and realize this isn't where I want to be after all...that sums up my effort on this second of the three roads. Click to enlarge. I finished the third attempt and will post it this week.
I went to the craft store and bought a string of shells, a straw wreath and rafia. I have a glue gun so now I'm going to challenge myself to make a new Spring-Summer wreath for the front door. For winter I bought a berry wreath and enjoyed it but now I'm ready for a change and how hard could it be? ha
I hope every one's holiday was sweet with family and good food. I visited my friend D. and we drank coffee in the morning sunlight and talked art...a gift we both needed.
Tonight I am watching the third episode of "Little Dorrit" on Masterpiece Theatre on my PBS station. It isn't my favorite Dickens but I just so enjoy the characters. Is anyone else out there in Blogland watching too?
