Art du Jour 59

image
This one is made up of random google images I randomly printed and even more randomly pasted to a canvas over a background of orange and yellow tissue paper.

I’m not sold on all that orange, but I thought too much sepia and brown would just be dull. And I went a little nuts with the stamping, but this time I used archival waterproof ink. What a difference, not having to worry about drying time and messy smearing by totally impatient me.

I love this idea, and now feel a little more confident about photocopying old photos of people I can actually identify and immortalizing their images in a less random fashion.

After I finish one of these there is always soft gel dried on my hands and fingertips and removing it is like pealing off layers of dead skin. Very freaky. And all my clothes are turning in to paint clothes with various splotches here and there of things that can’t be washed out.

So have I figured out that I should have a special few things to wear strictly for art? Nope. But I’ve thought about it, so that’s a start.

It’s another beautiful hot and sunny day here! If this keeps up we will be in for one hell of a thunderstorm soon. Enjoy your Monday.

Art du Jour 33

My inspiration for this composition came from a Pinterest pin. There’s no end to the ideas there, and I’ve pinned many.  I’d have quite a collection of my own art work if I sat down more often and used them.

I’m loving the colours here.  In my idea of a perfect world there would be predominantly reds and yellows during the day, and pinks and purples at night, with all other colours merely accents.

We are enjoying the most incredible weather for January today.  Well above freezing and snow melting everywhere.  W looked out the front window this morning and mused that perhaps winter was over.  That was a pretty delusional observation.  I’ll remind him of it when we’re in the middle of a blizzard in May.

But for now, time to bask in the sunshine.

“There is something in the autumn that is native to my blood—
Touch of manner, hint of mood;
And my heart is like a rhyme,
With the yellow and the purple and the crimson keeping time.”

(Bliss Carman)

Good for you if you never out-grow the inclination to jump gleefully into a pile of autumn leaves. It’s a magnificent way to feel.

Hello Yellow

Yellow is the color of his

True loves honey hair,

Blythe and breezy, light and lively,

Sapid, debonair.

Banana, lemon, mustard, cheese,

Butter, quince and maize,

Sizzling sunshine, dazzling saffron,

Goldenrod ablaze.

Animated, spirited,

Brazen and upbeat,

Yet dulcet, smooth and soothing,

Sanguine, warm and sweet.

Daffodils and marigolds,

Dandelions bold,

Paper tigers eye and jonquil,

Sunglow harvest gold.

A chicken hearted scaredy cat,

School bus, submarine,

Ribbons, brick road, taxi cab,

Knife and ictirine.

Jaundice, peridot, ripe melon,

Fever, squash, canary.

Babouche, mikado, zircon, zinc,

Aureolin fairy.

Sunflowers, jackets, straw and ming,

Yellow mellows everything.
