collage

currently steeped in the form … i go to ‘read’ the art of others … and the work of Janet Jones is where i go often … there is a beautiful sophisticated sensibility in her works that i love ….

i, on the other hand have been struggling the last few days

every now and again … something comes forth …

art comes unbidden – but

you do need to hunker down and do it when the time is right …. again, i must qualify that – the time is right when your mind is in the zone ..but you cant get there until everything aligns – ideas, raw materials, space and time  …   spread it all out and do it – for hours, or in this case days …

below, the process unfurls – first the papers in 1sta nd 2nd or third stages ….  then further stages which are lost in the layering of time and intent (that is lost and found) … then a little light and one or two (or three possibilities) …  (pics have been posted very quickly with rough matting to block out extraneous matter) .. final artworks when complete will be posted to the fynearts site.

wow to redbubble …

so as to check out the quality … i ordered a selection of my cards and the calendar from redbubble … and WOW …. thank you REDBUBBLE …   the quality is fantastic .. the cards look soooooo lovely and the calendar is fantastic !   i thought originally, what if i didnt like just one page of the calendar (and worse, more than one !) .. but gee … its looking wonderful …

i am thrilled with the products >>> Gina

PS i cant wait to produce more calendars !

camera club placement (october)

both pictures below placed, in october, in altered reality sections …  to see a haiga place in a camera club gives me much joy – not that this piece placed but that the club sees the value in the whole – that although the poetry is secondary when presented to a photography group, the whole was considered (and that includes the poem) …. the more viewers presented with a different artform widens the knowledge and ways of seeing…
