Yes, we are back to the cutting board!
The reason for that is simple: my precious French oil pastels are feeling just as overwhelmed from the heat as I am. They’re not quite butter, but they’re not quite up to form, either. So, rather than put the in the fridge and see what happens, I decided to just get cutting!
Somehow, whatever mode the heat has directed my brain towards seems to be more conducive to the process of collaging together pre-existing images than whatever the process it is I go through with the ‘water drawings’.
These are back to the ‘postcard’ size – 10x15cm. They’re the same size that make up the ‘fortunetelling deck’ – i.e. the 52 collages that I started using to tell fortunes with.
I’m thinking that maybe it’s time for another deck of 52.
And, I’m also thinking, maybe I oughta print these ought BIG!
(That’d be a change…)
So, here goes with the newest round of collages – titled, too!
(You can imagine them the size of a postcard, or you can imagine them BIG! If you go for ‘BIG’, let me know how it works for you…)
(Oh, and the one up on the very top is “Prenses”…)
