|This is my latest watercolor pencil piece.|
I have fallen in love with some of my daily ink drawings and have decided they would be better in color. I'm thinking of using this on my business card.
I really love look and feel of mixed media pieces and I never thought I could be very successful with it. But I have decided it is important for me to play with because of the nature of how they are created. You start out with your materials. Sometimes you start with a plan of where to begin and where it might end. But when you actually begin piecing it together, it morphs on its own; choices are constantly being made; and if you completely give in to the experience, your mind becomes quiet. Then you come back to reality and there is a piece of artwork before you. With the collage, sometime the work looks bad; sometimes it is alright; and many times it surprises you with its perfect balance and harmony. For me, it is not about the end result when I create them. For me, it is about quieting my mind and allowing it to escape from the to-do lists, dreams, wants and worries.
