It is my intention to bind all these loose pages I’ve been sharing, at the end of the year, so I will have a journal completed for 2010. This page was created mostly from scraps and pieces of trash; peanut shells, candy wrapper, rusted champagne lid cover, old negative I was going to throw away, but was able to use it for the dancing female figure on the film, watercolor, pencil marks, oil pastels, pressed leaves. I keep a large two-inch deep tray in my studio where I toss odd bits of paper, especially little pieces of brown paper from junk mail, or packaging, etc, or trash scraps, pieces from other projects… I planned to do the whole page in browns, but couldn’t confine myself to a monotone color range.
I love it! I could see something in there, what is that? I double clicked and now I know it was the peanut shells! They really work there. this is another fine piece in your recent series. I really like how you can bring all these different elements together and make them work. If you bind all these together they will be a wonderful work of art, each piece is already.
