This is a collage with acrylics and paper on a 3x5" lined index card and [IMHO] a clever abstract interpretation of the 24th Wonder31 prompt! It's not literally FRUITY but it's fruit-like. I started with heavy body acrylics, added some paper, more acrylics... some found text... and there ya go!Read More
And how could YOU interpret this prompt? Start with the word. You could place it at the center of an index card and brainstorm what it means to you. Do you crave MORE or LESS certainty in your life? If you made a list of what is CERTAIN and UNCERTAIN what would be in each column? What colors would you use to interpret this word? Or the opposite of this word?Read More
Try not to get all wrapped up in HOW you interpret a prompt. In the big picture of the universe, it does not matter. Just start somewhere. What matters is starting. I encourage you to go back to Wonder31 #1 and get started. They're fun, light-hearted prompts; they'll get you rolling and you'll enjoy your daily escapades. The prompts are here to kick-start your art. That's it. Not solve the riddles of Narnia or win you an Emmy.Read More
How often do you turn your 35mm camera sideways and take a photograph in portrait perspective rather than landscape? This was the question I pondered as I looked for tall, narrow components for this journal page. I created the background stripes in this altered book with acrylics, then threw my paper stash into a flurry of disorganization looking for stuff to fit! And it all started completely innocently, with the goal of using a tarot card on a journal page. This is not what I would have envisioned -- but this is where I wound up!Read More
And then, innocently enough, this little card came together in a flash. I solved the riddle. Text and texture, all at once.
Fragments from my collection of old books on a 3x5" lined, ordinary index card.Read More
Opted to take this concept of circles to the dizzying outer limits of what may be the most obvious and literal interpretation on earth! No circular logic here, just circles in every shape and form. Lollipops, mirrors, postal cancellation stamps, optical illusions, berries, polka dots, beads, painted circles, stamped circles, curves, bubble wrap stamps, gelatin prints, lace, etc.Read More
As we all know, zebras have patterns of irregular b&w stripes. I did not technically look at a photograph of a zebra so that might explain the blue zebra stripes on hot pink? Apparently the zebras in my imaginary world live amidst pink flamingos.Read More
