A busy week in Artlandia!
Work continues making new collages for En Masse at Thompson Giroux. This week I used the second piece of the paper I marbled a few weeks ago and made a second panoramic piece to be cut into sections.
I tried some new things with this one, adding a mist of gold to unify the whole thing and spraying a fine mist of white before adding the relief prints in the foreground (for a sfumato-like effect to create atmospheric perspective.) I also added a wash of green like a gradient so that its slightly greener in the foreground and gradually shifts to gray. Overall- thumbs up! I might be almost ready to try this on a slightly larger scale.
The swallows project also continues with a second life-scale swallow on the same block
Fall figure drawing has also started up.
In creature news - a funny kitty story. So this week, I had a studio visit and consequently spent 2 days cleaning all the studios. My feline assistants were excellent helpers - jumping up on recently cleared spaces and pouncing on any stray papers. In consolidating some of the storage containers, I had an newly-empty supply box, which I set in the hallway to be put in the attic...
|Jr. in the box|
|If Jr. gets to sit in the box, then, obviously, the Princess needs to sit in it too.|
|But Jr. is quite capable of waiting until the Princess is distracted to re-claim the box.|
|...and the drama continues...|
While the kitties were occupied inside, Honey and I went on outdoor adventures. It still feels like summer, but the leaves have started to fall and the light is changing.
