All weekend was spent on getting both places ready for the move. On Friday night, I collapsed my studio. I took all of my visual journals off the shelves and put them in a box; they are now on their way to our new place. It is rare I go back to look at my old work. When I do, I usually cringe and say, "I made that? What was I thinking?!" I start re-working the piece in my head, then I go back and re-work the piece if I think it needs it. Well, as I flipped through my journals, I came across some pages I really, really liked! And I photographed pages from all of my visual journals and will post photos of my pages in the coming weeks. Here are a few pages from 1 of my journals that I made last year. Much of this book was completed while I was attending the Art Center.
The pages above and the 1 below, go together. Much of my work deals with freedom and justice, 2 things that are very important to me. I worked with monoprinting, incorporating a leaf I found in my yard, and packing tape.
I think this is going to be my last post for the next few days. We should have internet service come Friday night. And tomorrow afternoon when I leave work, I will be heading over to our new place. If anyone is interested in the Michael de Meng book, email @ firstname.lastname@example.org. I have been able to send 3 of my books to new homes. Stephanie, if you're reading my blog, your book went out in today's mail.
