Day 18 : How do the big guys do it?
As I start today's blog, I wonder ... how do "they" do it?
They are the writers of blogs that I check in to read. They obviously make it seem easier than it is for me. This blog is turning out to be "monkey-brained" like me.
I had a comment about my collages, so I thought I might show
a few earlier attempts. Janice Lowry and I took a class where
we were assigned to do a self portrait using found materials.
I did this one, and maybe because Janice liked it, it has become my logo, avatar or whatever. At that time, I said it was me at
age 75. Now it looks more like me everyday.
I love to re-use and up-cycle. I think my mother's view of never wasting anything stuck with me. And so, to re-use magazines
and other miscellaneous papers is fun for me. One of my early canvases was meant to be an Asian lady with a bob haircut, but "Dawn" emerged with dreads and winked at me! She has been a personal favorite ever since.
For several yearsI have been asked to do artist demonstrations
at the Orange County Fair, Fine Arts building.
One year I started a large canvas, titled "Survivor",
for all the ladies surviving breast cancer.
As before, I am literally begging for comments.
Please, let me know if you want more?
