This piece measures 16"x16", collagraph, paper collage, oil pastel and acrylic. I stopped working on it yesterday so for now it's done. This time I added maps and one compass. The grid is a strong element in this one and I rather like it.
Right now I'm jazzed about exploring emulsion digital transfers and using my ink jet printer with traditional art materials. I know nothing on this subject (a small article in a book) which gives me challenge and play! Stones, rocks, pebbles and bricks will be my starting imagery and I believe fits into my oasis series. I'm liking shady cool rocks and moss covered old stones. .. rest, ancient meditations.
I'm also participating in a 10 day mini free workshop, a collage a day. Details and link at Art Propelled with Robyn. I have been inspired by her efforts and today I gave a quick 10min try at a collage (sidebar) Mine went together fast and strongly speaks of vacation...maybe a deeper meaning will show up with meditation. I did have some resistance to "Gets Something Right" but I glued it on anyway. It clearly describes the vacation I have been wanting for this fall for my birthday. I'm looking forward to doing this each day for 10 days...mining for personal gold!!
