This is all scraped acrylic paint, some of the scraping done with different tools. The images make me think of borders or fenced yards or gated communities—what and who (whom?) do we pen in? What and who do we keep out? What do we gain? What do we lose?
A few days ago, I finally succumbed to the resilient germs around our house—giving me “the crud” (which I still have as my companion). This is what I imagine the germs look like, except maybe not the pretty colors.
Here is another small scraped acrylic piece with ink embellishments here and there. It’s on slightly larger and lighter paper than yesterday’s. For the initial scrape, I used colors that I don’t normally use—just to force myself to use some different hues. But then I went over that with 2 transparent colors I have used more recently. The final ink embellishments were added to some lighter areas. I could continue, but actually, I think a nap would do me more good!
If you read yesterday’s post, you know I am working on a longer-term project for an exhibit. I am giving you another little peek today with this detail view of a new element just added. It seems I could not leave this neutral-hued piece alone…. I just had to include these little bits of color to placate my art soul.
For daily art today I worked on a piece-in-progress that I hope and plan to enter in an upcoming juried exhibit. This image is just a tiny detail of the whole. It’s a different sort of piece for me: very neutral colors, collaging unusual (for me) items onto a board. One thing remains the same—my questions about whether it’s complete or not! So, just a peek for now.
