i have spent a lot of thought this weekend reflecting on this project, and my general relationships to art show receptions. i always feel so lucky after an art show, followed by some serious melancholy that it came to a close.
endings are tough.
it is hard to keep things in perspective at times, especially in the high stress time before an event when i want to give up. i am constantly amazed by the support that comes together, both in the process of pulling details together with my collaborators, and also by the people who attend, enjoy and converse with us about our work.
looking forward to the future, although, i do know i need a little break for now.
layer one. illustration to follow. six days until over processed!! hope to see you there.
Please with how these linocut proofs came out.
A pinky promise between best friends. An understanding only the two of you get.
Apologies for the poor lighting. I snapped this early in the morning when the light had a cozy, bluish tint to it. I plan to embellish this with some floral illustration around the edges and of course watercolor. There is actually more space around the hands, but I cropped it too closely when quickly editing the photo.
14 days left until our show!
some of my favorite visuals come to me while i am sleeping, or in the early morning when i have not yet acknowledged that i am awake. soft aqua, jade tones and peach mix, a sliver of a moon above demented midnight deer eating fruit.
i never use white paint in my watercolor paintings, but i knew here i wanted a clean slice for a crescent moon, so i drew the shape with pencil (and my large mixing bowl) and then carefully filled it in with rubber cement. i’ve never done this before but it seems to be working out as planned.
Drew this. It’s actually an outline of the two women I received as inspiration from Meg back in March. I was going through all of my pieces earlier and decided to redo the first piece I made for this project…then I decided to possibly incorporate this into something for August. There are 28 days left until our show. 28 days!! I don’t have to much work to finish,but I definitely need to start focusing myself.
