It would be so easy if I would just go into my treasure trove of inventory and pull out several pieces that look good together and that are ready to hang... too easy! Nope, that's not how I do things. I have to show what's new; what I'm doing now.
As I looked through the six sketchbooks full of drawings, I found many that I think are deserving of attention and yet it bothered me to think of tearing out pages and in some cases, cutting out drawings. It occurred to me to print the drawings. Then it occurred to me to print the drawings on acrylic paint skins!
The process of creating multiples and yet having them all be different breeds an abundance of exciting ideas. There is so much potential and yet I only have a couple of weeks! I'll do what I can before its time to hang the show, and if it is as compelling as it seems, I could continue to pursue it. I love the thought of combining my drawings with painting in this unusual way.
It feels as though this deadline has suddenly become an alive-line or perhaps a lifeline!
