A collection of 5 x 7 inch greeting cards that are some combination of watercolor, crayon, and collage. The cards started out as small works in watercolor and crayon, but I did not like them. Not at all. In two cases, you can see some of the original work. In two cases, it's totally hidden by the collage.
If you are wondering, no I'm not going to be a collage artist. But, it was a fun experiment, and provided a puzzle fix for my brain. How do you solve for a piece of art that is not working? Or, more fundamentally, how do you know when a piece of art is not working? These are good questions, and I am not sure that I am always able to articulate the answer. For most of the cards above, I do know that the fundamental compositions were off. Did collage solve the problem? I do like the cat.
Why has it been more than a year since I've sent around a newsletter? Well. I just left my job. Friday, April 29th was my last day at Crowdbotics. Fabulous group of people, but I needed a break. I am very lucky to be able to do this. Ultimately, I would say you can not ignore or work through non-work stressors--they will catch up with you in the end.
Puzzles: Do I play wordl? You bet. Also, Spelling Bee. Soduko. Love a crossword. Happy to do a jigsaw puzzle. Am always available for a good game of Scrabble!
