Ole dog learning new tricks
I've been working on my submission for an Emmaus Art Group show coming up end of March in Calgary based on John 5, 22-24. I spent more than a month trying to wrap my head around the theme. I emailed members and was given input on what it means to them. I still floundered. Finally I decided to let the flow go and quit getting caught up in a literal translation. I decided to use photography as a collage and Gerald cut me some boards so I could build a shallow Retablos to affix the photos into. I sealed the plywood and printed off some proof images on scrap paper to see how my idea will work. I went looking for quality rag printing paper but it was too freaking expense so now have decided to see how the images will look printed on thin watercolor paper. I will post some images as I get far enough along to have something to show.
Hugs to all, one can never have enough.
