I decided to cut out the girls I drew from my bulletin, collage them in and add some color. After I added the color later I decided I liked them better just with the pencil sketch. I drew them very fast. I really thought I was nearning the end of this little journal but the blank pages just keep coming. Below is more of my backgound paper that didn't work as well--just a few small parts worked.
Ok, well, the colors are pretty good but this little piece is about all that I could redeem on this fairly large piece. I didn't throw it away and at least it wasn't a dead bug this time. Oh Pat Dews, come and save me from this dreadful art I am creating! I admire her even more after I see how hard good abstract is to create. I am realizing that I probably know nothing about the principles and elements of design and thinking about it...well, it makes me feel like I did when I was having to prove theorems in school---overwhelmed and more overwhelmed. Hopefully after creating art for so many years I do that intuitively--but sometimes I am not so sure. I think it's all good I am feeling this way because in 5 days I will be off to IAMPETH and back to my roots.
