Branching Out, 12x12 on canvas
Time to rework this experimental mark-making canvas - out came the collage materials, brayer and a digitally altered photo I took of a tree.
The final image with all my layers and a tree added.
Then, I showed a bunch of early versions of this large piece and I think it's done - at least for now. I'm living with it on the wall for a while, just to make sure.
Here's where I left it last time - shapes ala Jane Davies though I didn't have my gelli plate then, these are just painted papers.
What happens if I rotate the canvas? Oh my gosh - a whole different feeling and suddenly my conflicts are gone and I really like this piece and so does Dan. Hooray.
So that's what I was up to over the weekend - collages, mail art, painting, reading and relaxing - a perfect weekend. We even sneaked in a couple of movies - watched Promised Land with Matt Damon and The Sessions with Helen Hunt. Whew! Hope you all got the chance to satisfy your creative urges too!
