Joe's cut pieces
Mark used my scraps from my collage and in the end, he turned it over and decided he liked the back better!
This sketch (above) was really frustrating to draw and afterwards I was convinced it was horrible. Now, I really like it.
This sketch (above) was frustrating to draw and I hate the end result.
Spent around 7 hours breaking square mirror panels and then sorting the shards into containers of different sizes and shapes. These will be glued on my work in progress Air Person (working title).
Another night with Mirror Shards
I spent around 7 hours working today to glue more mirror shards and was happy to get a ways past the halfway point. The circumference will continue to get smaller from here, which means it'll take less time.
Cut Mirror into Small squares
I spent a few hours cutting up a large mirror into smaller squares so that when I break the mirror panels, the sharp shards are not too long. They will be a added to one of my art projects in progress Air Person (working title).
We got together and my one goal for the evening was to create a large quantity of flesh-color that matches my general skin tone. I then painted my hand, which still turned out too saturated and red. I also tried two experiments painting watercolors on black paper. You can see the collected sediment in the paints, but I then used a very pale flesh color to create moments of brightness.
Last year in the Fort Wayne's art museum, I saw a large photo by Kirsty Mitchell. My mom said that she is now having a current solo show, so I decided to explore her work more. I really love her constructed realities and the different textures.
My artist friend shared a free museum pass, so I finally got to see the Magritte show. It featured work from his later years, wherein he explored other painting techniques and themes that most people do not know about. I particularly liked his night paintings.
My friend Airy is painting a beautiful mural in Clarion Alley in San Francisco. It is turning out beautiful. She asked for my opinion for a couple of things and so we chatted for awhile.
