Day 8

Here is number 23 and 24 that I completed a couple days ago. The first one is layered figure drawings. I'm really missing that life drawing class from last semester more than I realized. It's invigorating to work so large and loose. No visitors have dropped by yet to draw. Well there was one but I didn't start fast enough and then they were gone. Rats. However my husband is back in town and he will be my next victim, I mean model.

This second image is about discovering symbols. Pictograms. The logo maker in me eats this right up. I've been looking at Adolph Gottleib a lot. I like the idea of these quirky images all playing together. I spent hours working on the background - might have been a wasted effort as far as the product is concerned. There's at least 4 or 5 layers of paint, collage, and type hidden in there.

As I journal every night and review the the highlights and lowlights of the day, I remind myself that the product is not the goal here. It's the process. I even went as far as to look up what process really meant. Process: series of changes in developing — to substitute — to exchange. The goal is to take risks and learn something.

Today is a new day and I'll start with number 32, leaving hesitation and preconceived ideas about what I think won't work at the door.

I LOVE the one with all the little pictograms! So cute. Can I call it cute? Well anyways, I like it a lot.
