Before the Shut Down
Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty, I realized that my monotype ghosts prints could have life beyond their current, faded state. Degas went over his ghost prints with pastels, I never knew that and found it fascinating! That was the little seed that caused a hum in my head to for a while. Although I admired Degas's process, it was not for me. I have never enjoyed working with pastels, either chalk or oil. How can I use these ghosts prints and turn them into new works of art? How can I approach it without repeating something that has already been done?
Please keep checking back soon for more posts. For a while I left this blog unattended because Instagram took over the way I shared my work with the world. Also I thought I had run out of interesting words and ideas to write about, but things are beginning to happen and take off. I now feel the need to share more on recent happenings and development of new work. Besides you can't ramble for days on Instagram because people's attention span is very short on that platform. So do come back, I promise to get better at this. Till next time be well and stay creative!
