Day 121: It’s not blue! Gonna make some more postcards.
Renée said it was the end of my blue period. I don’t think it’s the end, just a pause to enjoy some different colors. Also, you can see the backwards letters that I printed in this shot. While I was using the gelatin plate, I took my letter stencils and plunked them on the plate. Too bad I forgot that it would be backward. Sometimes the art side of my brain overrules the brain part of my brain.
Day 123: Flight, feathers, and song postcard.
This one turned out well, I think. Not as well as Day 122 but hey, not every album can be The Joshua Tree. What I wrote on it is actually, “feathers, flight, and song” I got it transposed when I tweeted it.
Day 124: Background. Yeah, I don’t know what it’s going to be either. (Hint: not postcards!)
Oh, the time when the thing is only a background and I wonder to myself what will I do with this one? Will it be a flop? Will I end up having to trash it? Will it be something I love forever and never want to part with? Will it be something that someone else will love? Oh, the fake agony.
Day 126: Added a sheep but I’m still not happy with it. It feels like a big muddy mess.
I’m just not happy with how this one is going. It may end up in the trash. I’ll give it one more look tomorrow and then I may call it done/trash. Meh.
Wow! This week! So I sold a piece.
Ann bought this for her living room and I’m so glad it went to a loving home! It’s not the first piece of art I’ve ever sold but it has a great deal of meaning for me since it comes from this year long project. The bonus is the money she paid me is going to my Nepal trip fund!
