This morning I was walking around the kitchen in a fog looking for the coffeemaker when it hit me what I might do with the pages I collaged a bit yesterday.
I started looking for images and found three or four. They might make an excellent query into aging!

Now we are getting somewhere

This was a good feeling! First to paint these cards (5 1/2" x 8") all black and then use various stencils to add more paint colors.
I used acrylic glaze which has increased the drying time, so that is irritating, but I do like the glazing nature of the look and the raised surface.
Do not think I can wait for it to dry properly, but perhaps I'll just paint something else!
There is nothing like the feeling of renewal I get by playing with paint or glue - femminismo

Just a Little Bit of New Year Cheer

Well, it's certainly been a while, but no time like the present to check in again! Today has been a time for reflection as I take down the Nordman fir Christmas tree's ornaments and leave it unadorned and bereft in the living room.
The familiar ornaments - some from the '70s, some
further back than that - bring back memories of times and people past. I walk through scenarios I haven't thought of in a very long time. I realize it's time for art, and so my hands reach for paper - mail, actually - to recycle. I decide to paint a dozen 5" x 8 1/2" cards with black gesso and then go on tomorrow with another coat of another color. Twelve cards. Enough for one for each month, or ... . We shall see - femminismo
