With the turmoil going on around the world, the peace symbol seems to be a much needed message. I want peaceforthe world and peace of mind for me.
Collage #25 is the last collage of this series for now.Myart project "to do list" is growing. I'm excited to start working on new projects...some small scale and some larger scale. I'm looking forward to sharing new art in the near future. Thanks for stopping by!
I'm happy to report that I was able to paint a little each day so far this week. I painted 5 pattern papers and create Collage #24. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of the papers before I cut into them. 4 of the patterns I have used before but the ameba looking pattern is new. It was a fun one to create. It feels good to make time each day for art.
Creating Collage #23 was a nice break from my day of non-art related tasks. I finally used the pattern in the upper right hand side. It was tough to cut into this paper because I love the whole pattern. I'm very happy with the finished collage.
One of my favorite places in Southern California is Brand Library & Art Gallery in Glendale. Besides being one of the best art libraries and gallery, it has an amazing foliage. Numerous photo opportunities!
First of all, I'm surprised that I've been able to create 22 collages with a limited color palette. I thought for sure that only 10 would be made.
Collage #22 uses small scraps (black with white paint) and large scraps (white with black paint that I couldn't bring myself to cut up). This design lends itself to a horizontal format. I'm happy with the final collage.
Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists' exhibit "Infinite Connections" is traveling to PIQF this month. I'm excited that my piece, "Infinite Possibilities" is included in this exhibit.
Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists' exhibit statement:
exhibit is dedicated to the infinite opportunities for connections and
all they bring to our lives. It allows each artist to explore the
meaning of the word "infinite" and how that meaning might relate to the
people and world around us.
My artist statementfor "Infinite Possibilities":
has 15 separate pieces. My idea is that each piece can be rearranged so
the design can change depending on how the 15 pieces are attached.
Infinite possibilities for infinite connections.
