It has been a while since I have shown you what I am working on. Back in October and November, I printed on white cotton with indigo paint. Not a color I had ever thought to work with in my past art life, but one which I have fallen in love with.
The pieces roughly measured 22" x 11". My thought was that each piece would be a spread from a book complete with crease/stitch down the middle. After looking at them and contemplating the possibilites for a while, I set to work hand stitching and monoprinting a bit more. Still...something just did not feel quite right. The muse was off talking to someone else.
Last Saturday, after a lot of thought about what was holding me back, I decided to cut the pieces in half so that they would be viewed as separate pages rather than as a whole spread.
The muse obviously approves of my decision because she is once again dancing in joy and whispering ideas in my ear. I thought I would share a few of my favorite sections.
There are 40+ pieces now which means a lot more work to do. They are free to be pages from a book or letters or...well...pages from a book or letters. In my mind that is what they are...for now.
