Palimpsest vs Collage
How many years ago now was it that the aesthetic theoretician Richard Woodfield referred to me as a ‘palimpsest’ artist? Close to 20. At the time, I liked the analysis; it gave me something new to think about, since the idea of my work being constructed of layer upon semi-transparent layer rang true. Nowadays, I’d have…
“Art Fortunes” is continuing on Indiegogo – but there’s less than a week to go. Just click on the link to find out what it’s all about – and if you like what you see, please share the campaign… and Thanks!!
A while back I wrote my list of 10 ideas. Of course, as soon as I posted it, I realized that I had left one out. And it was a really important one, too. It involved the next step in an ongoing project of recycling paper by using it in collages and then using the…
Blog reader, be(a)ware: Next week (god willing and the creek don’t rise) I’ll be launching an Indiegogo campaign to fund printing of a limited edition of ‘Art Fortunes’. For those of you who missed them, here (and here) are links to some posts explaining the ‘project’ (‘work’), which involves making collages and sharing interpretations of…
Pick a card.
I should be doing my morning yoga, but I left my telephone/timer downstairs, so I decided I would write to you instead. (I am trying to get into a routine of yoga every morning or every other morning; I’ve gotten from 5 minutes up to 15 minutes, and I NEED to do some this morning…
I’d like to announce, “I hate to interrupt the flow of the Georgia Road Trip story” – but that would be untrue. Fact is, the words weren’t flowing, so I decided to go back to the drawing board – literally. So, “below please find” a few new collages that will be making their way into…
If you’ve read some of my earlier blog posts, then you may know that I decided to take 52 of these postcard-size collages and turn them into a deck of fortunetelling cards. It seemed the logical thing to do, since the number of people really interested in looking at artwork seemed infinitessimely smaller than the number of people…
Back to the Drawing(CUTTING) Board
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…
Valentine’s Day Open Studio
So, a friend of mine mentioned an artist she read about who was trying to survive on donations she was soliciting as a means of support for her art-making. I’m guessing that if she’s doing this through a crowdfunding web site, she’s “giving away” pieces of artwork as “gifts” to the folks making these donations. I suppose that…
Since I came back from New York in October, I’ve maintained the policy of turning on the news as infrequently as possible. Regardless, it is getting to be that time of year when the tv news shows are full of prognosticators called in to reveal what we should all be expecting for the coming year. Last year,…
