"Part of the joy of looking at art is getting in sync in some ways with the decision-making process that the artist used and the record that's embedded in the work."
No matter what else is going on, there are always index cards in development. They are in my purse, in the car, on the sewing table. A great spot for trying new ideas or just smearing paint at random. Based on my computer folder of index card artwork photos, I think I've done about 220 cards so far in 2014, including those for the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge. I have tucked a lot of index card art in with art journal prompt card orders, so the count of cards on hand is not as high:)
A small set of 3x5" index cards. The first four are stitched collages with things like japanese papers, found text, painted papers, paint chips, magazine images, cut up canvas paintings. The next two art watercolor with ink on top. It's been a surprisingly and incredibly creatively productive month! Even amidst all of the holiday stuff!
