Yesterday was a partial eclipse and I retreated to the studio to muse about how off balance the day felt ( appointments cancelled, weird tasting lunch). I opened my journal and was less than enthused about a few of the spreads so I resorted to "adding more layers". My focus shifted and I played with a new color scheme and scraps of paper ripped to give deckelled edges. The moon did its' dance and a few quiet hours later I enjoyed the calm and a little satisfaction.
I had a surprise few days in my studio and re-connected with the process of working on multiples. These square wood frames were calling my name ( found them on sale at Guirys) so I started collaging with papers left on my table from other projects. One thing led to the next and suddenly I had completed 10 of these, all with found text and lots of layers. I'll have them in the Nov 1 holiday art fair (West Washington Park Community Center, Denver). There is such a sense of satisfaction when the work grows and matures which is why I love multiples!
