Day 1389: Talking and when it's too much?

memories, photo, collage & digital

Thursday was the 2nd of the 4 week series at Catalyst.

homework by Connie

We had a lot of projects planned for the 2-1/2 hour class.

Some quick drawings under various handicaps ...

some quick writing using test as a design element.

A 5 minute collage face or design ...
the results were free, fresh and fun.

Tearing paper into letters for text ...
all part of loosening up.

Then, a 10 minute (or less) collage face or image
on a provided finished background.
(actually annual report covers done for clients long ago) ...

And lastly,  starting with a photo-copied face ...

approximately 7" with instructions to tear into 1/3  to 1/2 ...

to adhere part of the face to a journal page and add collage ...
gesso, acrylic, markers or whatever felt right.
(the unused parts could be saved for future use).

I was thrilled with their results ...

just a thought ...

When I take a class I am mostly quiet. A listener & observer.
I like to listen and take in the essence of the class & group.
I am kinda quiet by nature, shy, socially-backward even?
As a little girl, I remember my Dad telling his friend ...
"she's quiet but she's always thinking."
I always wondered how he knew that?
However, when I teach I know I am not quiet.
I mentioned to Carrol that I do talk & demo, but not a lot.
She laughed and laughed, and since she is very smart,
that made me reconsider ...
maybe I am one of those who talk more than necessary?
Or, maybe I am like my Mother-in-law who said ...
when there was silence she felt an obligation to fill it up.
I'll have to think on that.

A smile for Sunday ...
