I sorted paper yesterday. Took me a long time and I didn’t throw away nearly as much as I should have. I must have a stack of paper 4 feet tall and I have no idea on how to keep it neat.
I did find some paper I had marbleized some time back. I still don’t know the master’s trick but these were the best results I have ever gotten. I doubt the master uses the methods I have tried (i.e. shaving cream); it would be fun to take a class in this to see how it is really done. These were done with laying very fluid acrylic paint (meant for airbrushing) on liquid starch. I cut hearts from 2 different sheets with a punch. I love the little patterns in these hearts.
Hope to be painting again and weaving again very soon. I have been busy with other stuff and being pulled away from art is detrimental to my muse. I think this is why you should create every day.
Did you know that not one of the 9 Greek muses is for the visual arts? And with all that beautiful art dedicated to them, it is rather curious…
