20"x20" Rives BFK, acrylic, graphite, collage, stencil, molding paste. I began with pieces of construction plans that I've kept of a house I owned well over 15 years ago. I just like looking at all the lines, footage and notes...plans for a home...full of potential. As I added in collage and the border stencil I began writing to try to find the autumn connection. I wrote this:
Floor plans displaying the places to load in and shelve summer's carefree memories.
Turning from warm sand and eye squinting sun
Foamy waves tickling toes and ankles
Turning now to roof lines, windows and necessary built in spaces
Turning and stepping into cool mornings and shadowed yards
I fell in love with this green...not sure about autumn colors as here at the beach there are few reminders of autumn...except of course, the light has changed. My next two pieces are smaller and I'm adding more fabric collage and some lino prints. I like cutting shapes with my tools and rolling out ink...the comfort of old printmaking habits!
