I have a few projects cooking in the studio this week. One is a postcard I am sending out tomorrow. I did a quick ten minute paper assemblage from an antique text and created a gesture drawing of this banana tree bloom I picked from my backyard. I really did want to do this postcard this week and opted for one that was quick and easy given my busy schedule. The frost got it before any bananas were able to ripen but I think the bud is elegant.
Another project in the works (actually it traveling through the US postal service as I type this) is my next installment of our Two Artists, One Surface project….
Laura and I actually started this together when she was here a few weeks ago so I feel like I am cheating a little bit. Our project never happened because we ran out of time, but I really like our initial thoughts about the work. We copied random quotes from our blog, whipped them up in Photoshop and printed them on antique text pages. The photos are also from the days we spent together.
Well, that is what I have been up to in the studio, in between teaching and parenting, the last few days. I also have been enjoying Kim Klassen’s Photoshop class and will leave you with one of my photographs I altered. Spring is on it’s way!
