Day 1505: NYC on my mind?

"nyc", journal collage, digitized.

As mentioned in earlier posts, 
I am in a Round Robin journal exchange.

I received artist/friend John Arbuckle's 
beautiful handmade journal ...

step 1 empty page

to select and open a 8.5 x 11" spread to work on ...
and mail on to the next artist by September 5th!

step 2

I started with two colors of acrylic & a scrap of junk mail.

step 3

This is my limbo stage. Not sure but playing.

step 4

it was right about here I started to know where I was going?
Inspiration from a great meal, Beatriz, Dave & Jack helped!

step 5

More playing! Did I mention that I love junk mail?

step 6

The polka dot wrapping papers seemed inappropriate for a sky ...
but that made it even more appealing.

step7 (done)

I was really tempted to go in with an ink marker 
and define lines & edges, but I didn't.
I really love the unevenness that still suggest straight lines.

I leave for NYC soon & maybe it's on my mind?
